Women's Hockey Unbeaten Streak Now Eight Games
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team set a school record for consecutive games without a loss today as the Blugolds defeated Lake Forest College (Ill.) 2-0 at Hobbs Ice Center.
The Blugolds have not lost in eight straight games with the win today, completing January with a 6-0-2 record. It was also the first time in program history the Blugolds did not lose a game in the month of January.
Eau Claire improves to 11-5-3 overall and 8-4-2 in NCHA play. Eight wins is the most the Blugolds have achieved in the conference since the 2007-08 season when they finished with a program-high nine victories. Lake Forest falls to 9-6-3 on the season and 5-6-3 in the conference.
Eau Claire used a goal in both the first and second periods and held the Foresters scoreless the entire night for the win.
Toni Simones (Jr.-Rosemount, Minn./South St. Paul) then gave the Blugolds a cushion with a score at 3:09 in the second period. Jenkins assisted on that goal as well.
The Blugolds finished outshooting the Foresters 28-20 and Mara Stormer (So.-Waunakee, Wis.) stopped all 20 shots to improve to 6-1-3 on the season. The shutout was her first of the season while it was the Blugolds’ fifth overall. The five shutouts ties for a school record for most in a season as the team also had five last year.
The Blugolds will play their final two home games of the regular season next Friday and Saturday when Concordia University comes to Hobbs. Friday’s action will start at 7 p.m. and will wrap up the weekend with a 2 p.m. game Saturday.
