It was a successful weekend for the Saint Cloud State women's hockey team as they picked up four crucial points by sweeping Bemidji State University and history was made as Caitlin Hogan broke the all-time scoring mark.
The big story of the weekend was senior forward Caitlin Hogan's pursuit of history. Going into game one against Bemidji, Hogan needed just one point to tie the all time scoring mark of 119 points. With four seconds left in the first period, Hogan took control of a loose puck in the slot and fired it past Beaver goalie Alana McElhinney. Hogan would finish game one sitting at the 119 mark and would have to wait till game two for the chance to break it. The score was tied 2-2 in the third period when first year forward Kylie Lane left a pass between the circles for a trailing Callie Dahl who put it past McElhinney to give the Huskies the lead 3-2. The goal was the first of Dahl's career at SCSU.
Game two saw back and forth action once again and also saw history made. Late in the first period Hogan would have the puck go off her skate and to fellow senior Meaghan Pezon. The Eden Prairie native reached the loose puck right between the circles and put in her 10th goal of the season to tie the score 1-1. Hogan was credited with the second assist on the play which gave her point number 120, putting her all alone at the top of the charts. The game would go to a shootout where Holly Roberts would score in the second round and junior goaltender Ashley Nixon stopped all three Beaver shooters to give SCSU the win. SCSU is now 11-11-6 overall and 8-10-4-3 in the WCHA.

The Huskies were down by 13 with less than 9 minutes remaining on Saturday but they charged back on a 11-0 run to get within 2 points. SCSU got close but it wasn't enough as Augustana hung on to win 77-73. Talisha Barlow had another nice night with 23 points but it went for not as Saint Cloud dropped to 8-12 on the season with a conference record of 3-10.
Next up for the women's team is a pair of games on the road with Minnesota-Duluth and Bemidji State this weekend.
01/31/2010 - 8:30 AM
It didn't look good for the Huskies from the start as the Vikings jumped to a 15-0 lead and led 19-2 at one point. For as bad as Saint Cloud was from the start, the team got on a roll later in the first half and went on to cruise by Augustana with a final score of 68-58.
Brett Putz led the Huskies in scoring with 19 points and Matt Schneck ended the night with his 12th double-double of the season with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
With the two wins, Saint Cloud improves to 16-4 overall with a 10-3 mark in the conference. The Huskies return on the road this weekend with games against Minnesota-Duluth and Bemidji State.

After tempers died down and the dust settled, it was a series spilt for the Saint Cloud State Men's Hockey team. The series saw Colorado College and the Huskies combine for 19 goals and each team pick up two points in a very crowded WCHA conference.
The Huskies won their 9th game in a row on Friday night with a 5-4 win behind two David Eddy goals and three points each for Ryan Lasch and Aaron Marvin. It was a back and forth series that had each team taking turns with the lead both nights but the end result on Saturday had the Huskies' winning streak come to an end. Garrett Roe's two goals and three points were not enough as the Tigers took the finale 6-4, although not without some controversy. The Huskies thought they had tied the score at 5-5 with 1:30 left in the 3rd period but the goal was wavied off because the referee lost sight of the puck and blew the play dead.
After the game head coach Bob Motzko was visibly angry with the call by the referee and has held back in his discussion by the other members of the officiating crew. The Huskies were given a team unsportsmanlike conduct and game misconduct penalty at the end of the game as well for the heated exchange.
With the spilt, the Huskies find themselves in 3rd place in the WCHA conference with an overall record of 17-8-3 but just two points behind Denver for the top spot. The Huskies are currently 4th as well in the pairwise rankings which try and mimic the guidelines used by the NCAA to figure out the national tournament field.
SCSU returns home this weekend for more WCHA play against Alaska Anchorage. Listen to the games both nights on KVSC with puck drop at 7:07 p.m. on Friday and 5:07 p.m. on Saturday.

Friday afternoon the Huskies fell behind early as the 7th ranked Badgers scored two goals in the first six minutes as Geena Prough and Mallory Deluce lit the lamp for Wisconsin. The Huskies would battle back to within a goal but the Badgers’ Carolyn Prevost matched SCSU goal for goal as she had her first hat trick of the season. Saturday’s game saw the Huskies fall behind early but this time they were able to come back. The Huskies took a 3-2 lead going into the third period but Wisconsin’s Brianna Decker took advantage of a Husky turnover and tied the game up with her eighth goal of the season halfway through the third. The crowd at the Kohl Center thought overtime was on the horizon but SCSU senior forward Meaghan Pezon put a forehand wrister top shelf to give the Huskies the lead 4-3 with less than five minutes left. That score would stand as the final. Husky goaltender Ashley Nixon made 65 saves in the two games to pace Saint Cloud between the pipes.
SCSU is now 10-11-5 overall and 7-10-3-2 in the WCHA. The Huskies will be at home this weekend to take on the Bemidji State Beavers. Faceoff on Friday is 7:07 p.m. with the puck dropping Saturday at 2:07 p.m. Both games will be broadcast live on 88.1 FM KVSC.
