Women’s hockey beats UMD 4-1

The No. 3 Gophers scored three third-period goals against the No. 4 Bulldogs.

The No. 3 Gophers women’s hockey team returned to its winning ways at Ridder Arena on Friday night, rallying from a goal down to defeat No. 4 UMD 4-1.

Jen Schoullis scored twice on the power play, first tying the game at 1-1 in the second period, and then giving Minnesota a 3-1 lead in the third period. Schoullis ranks second on the Gophers with eight goals on the season.

Sarah Erickson scored the game-winning goal 9:11 into the third period, her sixth of the season, with Schoullis tallying her 11th assist. Megan Bozek added a late empty-net goal.

“I thought our composure won us the hockey game tonight,” Minnesota head coach Brad Frost said in a release. “We were heading to the [penalty] box along with [UMD] there for a while — then we just kept our composure and they kept going to the box, and we were able to capitalize on their penalties.”

Minnesota was 2-for-8 on the power play, while UMD was 0-for-5.

The Gophers out-shot UMD 37-21 in the game, including an 18-4 shots edge in the second period.

“The second period I thought we started moving our feet and dominated,” Frost said. “We talked in between the second and third period — if we just had another period like we had in the second period, then we’d probably be fine, and the pucks would start going in. And they did.”
