Women's Hockey Falls To Stevens Point 6-1
Posted: Friday, February 1, 2008
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. - The UW?Stevens Point Pointers showed exactly why they are No. 3 in the nation on Friday night as they thumped the Blugolds 6-1 at Hobbs Ice Center.
The Blugolds came out firing as they controlled play for the first five minutes of the game, but an even strength goal at the 8:00 mark of the first period got the Pointers on the board. Up 1-0, they never looked back from there as they controlled the ice for most of the night.
The Pointers scored their first of six goals when Tracy Butler beat Danika Porter (Fr.-Rosemount, MN/South St. Paul) from the slot at the 8:00 minute mark of the first. The Pointers would go on to take a 2-0 lead about five minutes later when Dana Carothers found the back of the net. The Blugolds cut into the Pointers lead with just under four minutes remaining in the period when Michelle Stohr (So.-South St. Paul, MN) beat Pointers goalie Ann Hulme with a nice slap shot. The goal came on the power play and was assisted by Lauren Havard (Jr.-San Angelo, TX/Arapahoe) and Kristin Faber (Fr.-Austin, MN). Unfortunately for the Blugolds, that would be their only score of the night.
In the second, the Pointers dominated the Blugolds. The Pointers powerful offense tallied three goals before the Blugolds could even put a puck on net. The Blugolds were limited to only one shot on goal during the period.
The Blugolds made a goalie change between the second and third period. Lindsay Savat (Fr.-Apple Valley, MN/Thomas Jefferson) came in and made seven saves on eight shots during the period. However, it was too little too late as Hulme and the Pointers defense held the Blugolds' offense scoreless on eight shots in the third.
This loss drops the Blugolds to 10-9-0 overall and 7-5-0 in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA). The loss also drops the Blugolds to 1-24-1 all-time against the UW?Stevens Point Pointers.
The Blugolds are off tomorrow night, but will resume play next weekend. Next weekend they will travel to Lake Forest for a pair of games. In the two teams' pervious meeting this year, the Blugolds came out victorious with a 4-2 win. Friday's game is set to start at 7:00 p.m.
