The Gustavus Adolphus women’s hockey team moved to 3-1-0 on the season and 2-0-0 in the MIAC after downing Concordia-Moorhead 4-1 Saturday afternoon in St. Peter. Jessica Doig (So., New Prague, Minn.) scored two goals, while Stefanie Ubl (Jr., Blaine, Minn.) was credited with three assists.
Doig opened the scoring with a power-play goal midway through the first period off assists by Andrea Peterson (Sr., White Bear Lake, Minn.) and Ubl. Concordia evened the score with a power-play goal of their own four minutes later as Kayla Thorson put a puck past Gustie goalie Amanda Rosequist (So., Edina, Minn.). The Cobbers had a two-skater advantage on the play. Mandi Samuelson was credited with an assist on the goal, Thorson’s fourth of the year.
The Gusties took the lead with a goal by Melissa Mackley (Fy., Burnsville, Minn.) just 0:24 into the second period and extended it to 3-1 as Doig scored her second goal of the day with 0:15 showing on the clock in the second. Ubl picked up assists on both goals, while Margaret Dorer (Jr., St. Paul, Minn.) picked up an assist on Doig’s goal.
Kelly Crandall (Sr., Plymouth, Minn.) capped the scoring with a power-play goal in the first minute of the third period. Jenny Pusch (So., Minneapolis, Minn.) and Claire Opsahl (Fy., Eagan, Minn.) were credited with assists on the play.
Rosequist made 13 saves for the Gusties to improve to 2-0-0 in net on the season. Maddie Haroldson made 44 saves, but falls to 1-1-0 on the season.
Crandall’s goal, her 18th career power-play goal, moved her back into first place on the Gustavus career power-play goal list. Andrea Peterson had moved into a tie with a power-play goal to open scoring Friday night.
With her assist on Doig’s first goal, Peterson picked up her 83 career assist, moving into first place on the Gustavus career assists list.
