Adrian College Tops Women's Hockey 4-2
Posted: Friday, November 30, 2007
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team was defeated 4-2 on Friday night by Adrian College (Mich.) in the two teams first ever meeting. The loss ended the Blugolds current winning streak at four games.
Adrian College jumped out to an early 1-0 lead as Ainsley Coon scored on a Nicky Futers assist at 5:10 of the first period. The Bulgolds struck back at 13:28 of the first when Maddi Hammer (Fr.-Owatonna, MN) snuck a wrist shot past the Adrian Goalie, Ashley Kavanagh, to even the score at one apiece. Hammer's goal was assisted by Meghan Lorenz (Fr.-Minnetonka, MN/Wayzata). However, Adrian's Steph Dimini scored less than a minute later, at the 14 minute mark of the first, to give Adrian a lead they would hold on to for the rest of the game.
Each team scored a goal in the second period. Adrian started the scoring only 27 seconds into the period with a Jessica Grubbs goal. After the Grubbs goal, the teams exchanged shots on goal for most of the second period with Eau Claire outshooting Adrian 13-8 in the period. At 19:12 of the second period, Christine Dickinson (Fr.-Layton, UT/Shattuck St. Mary's) brought the Blugolds within one on an unassisted goal.
The Dickinson goal would be the Blugolds last on the night, but Adrian was not done scoring yet. Adrian added to its lead at 16:28 of the third period when Futers tallied her second point of the night with a power play goal. That would prove to be all Adrian would need as the Blugolds were unable to score again despite pulling Danika Porter (Fr.-Rosemount, MN/South St. Paul), goalie, with 1:57 to play.
Porter stopped 21 of the 25 shots she faced and fell to 3-3 on the season. Her counterpart, Kavanagh, stopped 29 of 31 shots and improved to 4-1.
Both teams took five penalties. Adrian was 1-5 with the skater advantage, and Eau Claire was unable to take advantage of any Bulldog penalties as they went 0-5 with the skater advantage.
The Blugolds will look to even the score with the Bulldogs when the two teams square off tomorrow afternoon at Hobbs Ice Arena. The puck is set to drop at 2:30 p.m.Eau Claire-Adrian College Box Score
