Women's Hockey Defeats Lake Forest
Posted: Friday, February 11, 2005
EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire women's hockey team bounced back from a 1-0 deficit to earn a 3-1 victory over Northern Collegiate Hockey Association opponent Lake Forest here tonight at Hobbs Ice Arena.
The Blugolds improve to 12-8-1 for the season, further extending their single season wins record. The previous record for wins in a season was 10, set by last year's squad. Eau Claire is now 2-5-1 in NCHA action. The win slips them past the Foresters for fourth place in the conference as Lake Forest drops to 1-4-2 in conference play and 8-8-4 overall.
The Foresters took the first lead of the game when Laura Wilson found the back of the net on the power play 8:54 into the first period. From then on the Blugolds were the only ones to get in the scoring column. With less than two minutes remaining in the first period, Christa Hubert (Sr.-Blaine, MN) tied the game at one with the first of three unanswered goals by Eau Claire. The Blugold scoring was not done in the first period, however, as Karen Hebert (So.-Lakeville, MN/Holy Angels) score the game-winner with just 15 seconds left in the period.
Neither team found the back of the net in the second period and Laura Brackey (Jr.-Oakdale, MN/Tartan) scored an insurance goal midway through the third period to finish the scoring at 3-1.
The Blugolds won the shot battle 33-20 on the night. Blugold goalie Jill Arendt (Fr.-Plymouth, MN/Wayzata) stopped 19 of the 20 shots she face in goal for the win.
Eau Claire resumes action tomorrow night when they battle Robert Morris at 7:05 p.m. at Hobbs Ice Arena. Because Robert Morris is a non-varsity sport, the game will not count on the Blugolds record or for statistics.
