Women's Hockey Sets Two Records In Win Over St. Ben's
Posted: Saturday, November 13, 2004
EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team set the team record in penalties and shots on goal in winning 5-1 over the College of St. Benedict in the first ever meeting between the schools here tonight at Hobbs Ice Center.
Eau Claire got off 59 shots against the Blazers beating the old record of 52 from 2000. The Blugolds had 24 shots on goal in the first period, 16 in the second and 19 in the third.
The 13 penalties shattered the old team record of eight penalties in a game. The 26 penalty minutes is second in team history behind only a 27 penalty minute game against St. Mary's in 2003.
The Blugolds didn't let the penalty minutes play a large part in the outcome as they denied all 10 Blazer power plays. Eau Claire capitalized on their chances scoring two goals in four power play opportunities.
Eau Claire got on the board first with a Devon Nichols (Jr.-Victoria, MN) goal 8:02 into the game. The Blugolds added a shorthanded goal from Claire Parda (Jr.-Waukesha/Catholic Memorial) and power play goal from Allison Campbell (So.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) to put Eau Claire up 3-0 heading into the second period.
Theresa Guindon (Fr.-Lino Lakes, MN/Centennial) scored off a pass from Karen Hebert (So.-Lakeville, MN/Holy Angels) in the second period for the lone goal of the period.
Amanda Schultz (Jr.-Stevens Point/SPASH) scored a power play goal in the third period for her fourth goal of the year to give Eau Claire a 5-0 margin. St. Ben's would add a goal late to give the game its final margin.
Jill Arendt (Fr.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) played a majority of the game in goal stopping all 12 shots sent her way.
The win improves Eau Claire's record to 3-1-0 on the year while St. Ben's falls to 0-3 on the year.
The Blugolds will be in action next when they travel to St. Paul, Minn. to play St. Thomas Wednesday. The game is scheduled to begin at 5:40 p.m.
