She is tied for the team lead with Martina Korinek (So.-White Bear Lake, MN) and Karen Hebert (So.-Lakeville, MN/Holy Angels) with three assists.
The Pipers from Hamline come into Wednesday's game with a 2-6 record on the season and last saw action in a 4-3 overtime loss to Finlandia (MI) on December 18. Of Hamline's six losses, only two of them have been within six goals. The Pipers have yet to win a game on the road in three tries.
