Huskies Split with Mavericks
12/08/2009 - 12:45 PM
The Saint Cloud State women's hockey team continued to stay unbeaten in regulation this past weekend as they split with Minnesota State-Mankato this past weekend in a home and home series. Friday night the teams squared off down in Mankato and the score went back and forth and the teams needed extra time to decide a winner as the game went to a shootout. Maverick goalie Alli Altmann stopped all three Husky shooters in the shootout to preserve the 5-4 shootout win.
Saturday the teams faced off in Saint Cloud at the National Hockey Center and it was a defensive battle as the game was scoreless until the third period. SCSU alternate captain Holly Roberts took a Kelly Meierhofer pass and beat Altmann low glove side to put SCSU up 1-0 and thats where it would end. Husky goaltender Ashley Nixon made 32 saves for her 4th career shutout.
The Huskies are now 8-9-1 overall and 5-8-1 in the WCHA. This weekend they will try to move up the standings as they take on Ohio State University at the National Hockey Center. Puck drop on Friday is at 2:07 and Saturday face-off is slated for 1:07 p.m. Both of those games can be heard on 88.1 FM KVSC with Matt Bishop, Joe Clemence and Zack Fisch having the call.
