A fierce wind controlled play throughout the match. Augsburg had the benefit of the wind in the first half and out-shot Gustavus 11-6. The Auggies were able to score with the wind and that turned out to be the difference. In the second half, Gustavus had the benefit of the wind and out-shot Augsburg 16-4, however the Gusties were not able to score the equalizer and suffered the disappointing 1-0 loss.
Gustavus goalkeeper Ashley Ohlson made nine saves in 90 minutes of play. Maggie DeGroot made eight saves in 90 minutes of play for Augsburg.
The Gusties, who are now 7-6-0 overall and 2-5-0 in MIAC play, will return home to host Bethel at 1:00 pm on Saturday.
