Campbell Scores Twice, But Women's Hockey Comes Up Short
Posted: Saturday, February 23, 2008
RIVER FALLS, Wis. - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team lost 4-2 to the UW-River Falls Falcons at Hunt Arena in River Falls Saturday afternoon. The loss was the Blugolds sixth consecutive loss against the Falcons and dropped their record to 11-13-0 overall and 8-9-0 in Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) play.
The Falcons took the early lead by scoring the first two goals and never looked back. The Falcons special team unit was responsible for the Falcons early lead as they scored one power play goal and one shorthanded goal.
The first goal of the game came off the stick of Ashly Berner. Berner's goal came on the power play at 8:35 of the first after Christine Dickinson (Fr.-Layton, UT/Shattuck St. Mary's) was sent to the penalty box for tripping at 7:52. The Falcons added to their first period lead with just under four minutes remaining in the period as Jamie Briski beat Lindsay Savat (Fr.-Apple Valley, MN/Thomas Jefferson) on a shorthanded opportunity to put the Falcons up 2-0.
After neither team was able to score in the second period, Margaret Campbell (Jr.- Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) cut into the Falcons lead with an even strength goal at 3:42 of the third. The Falcons did not wait long to increase their lead back to two. Just under two minutes after Campbell's goal, Kristen Juven beat Savat for her first goal of the season to give the Falcons the 3-1 edge. The Blugolds cut the Falcons lead to one once again on Campbell's second goal of the night and seventh of year. Campbell's second goal of the night came on the power play at 7:46. However, Campbell's efforts would not prove to be enough as the Falcons would add one more goal at 18:22 to seal the deal on a 4-2 victory.
Lindsay Savat made 29 saves on 33 Falcon shots in her fifth consecutive start for the Blugolds. The loss drops Savat to 5-6 overall on the season.
The Blugolds will wrap up the regular season tomorrow afternoon when these same two teams drop the puck at 2:00 p.m. at Hunt Arena.Eau Claire-River Falls Box Score
