Women's Hockey Still Unbeaten in 2011
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team remained unbeaten in 2011 with a 1-1 overtime tie against Lake Forest College (Ill.) at Hobbs Ice Center tonight.
The Blugolds have not lost yet in the new year, improving their unbeaten streak to seven games, which ties a school record. Eau Claire previously went unbeaten in seven straight games from January 7, 2007 to January 27, 2007.
Eau Claire is now 10-5-3 on the season and 7-4-2 in NCHA play. Lake Forest sits at 9-5-3 overall and 5-5-3 in the conference.
In tonight’s game, the Blugolds jumped out to the initial lead as Kristin Faber (Sr.-Austin, Minn.) scored, unassisted, at 6:58 in the second period. Just over 11 minutes later, Lake Forest’s Rosy Fujimoto tied the game up at 1-1. While the game went into overtime, neither team could find the back of the net and the game ended at one apiece.
The Blugolds committed a season-high nine penalties but Lake Forest was able to convert on just one of them. The Foresters had just three penalties.
Not only was the score even at the end of 65 minutes of play, but the teams also finished with identical shot totals, with each team coming away with 26.
Mara Stormer (So.-Waunakee, Wis.) played the entire night in-goal and stopped 25 shots. She is now 5-1-3 on the season.
Tomorrow the teams will face each other again with a game at 2 p.m. at Hobbs Ice Center.
