HANCOCK, Mich. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team picked up its fourth shutout of the season and second in a row with a 5-0 victory over Finlandia University (Mich.) at Houghton County Arena tonight.

The Blugolds’ final goal came with just over a minute left to play as Emily Haluska (So.-Stevens Point, Wis./SPASH) scored at 18:50 in the third period.
