Women’s Hockey Holds Off Concordia 2-1

Posted on December 2nd, 2005 by

Junior Andrea Peterson (White Bear Lake, Minn.) racked up 14 shots, recording only one goal, but it was enough to lead the Gustavus women’s hockey team past Concordia, 2-1, Friday night in Moorhead. The Gusties improve to 5-1-0 overall, 3-0-0 in the MIAC, while the Cobbers drop to 0-6-2 overall, 0-2-1 in the league. The two teams will face off again Saturday at 2 p.m. in Moorhead.

Peterson put the Gusties on the board just 4:26 into the game, depositing a puck past Cobber goalie Jenna Johnson to give Gustavus a quick 1-0 lead. For Peterson, it was her sixth goal of the season. First-years Liz Haakenson (Moorhead, Minn.) and Brigitte Bartholdi (Cloquet, Minn.) were credited with assists on the play.

With 5:49 gone in the second period, first-year Christine Wicker (Apple Valley, Minn.) deposited the eventual game-winner past Johnson to give the Gusties a 2-0 lead. The Cobbers’ Ceara Bergsrud slipped a puck past Gustavus goalie Kitty Hurley (Jr., Minnetonka, Minn.) to cut the lead to 2-1, but Concordia would get no closer.

For the game, the Gusties threw 40 shots at Johnson, 14 alone by Peterson. With a league-high 22 third-period goals coming into the game, Gustavus was held scoreless in the final frame for only the second time this season.
