St. Peter, Minn. – After taking home a 3-1 victory over Concordia College on Friday evening, the Gustavus Adolphus women’s hockey team completed a series sweep over the Cobbers on Saturday afternoon by securing a 2-0 win at Don Roberts Ice Rink. The victory moves the Gusties to 2-0-0 in the MIAC and 3-0-0 overall, while Concordia falls to 0-2-0 in the MIAC and 0-3-0 overall.

After going scoreless for two periods, Gustavus was finally able to break the ice with 17:11 remaining in the third period when first-year Katy Fuller (Minneapolis, Minn.) became the fourth Gustie rookie this season to score the first goal of her young career. The goal came off an assist from fellow first-year Erica Power (Lakeville, Minn.) and proved to be the game-winner for Gustavus.

Allison Eder-Zdechlik (Jr., Stillwater, Minn.) was able to put an exclamation point on the Gustavus lead when she scored her first goal of the season 11:29 into the final period off an assist from Power and Diana Draayer (Fy., Deephaven, Minn.). The goal extended the Gustie lead to 2-0, which is where it would stay for the remainder of the afternoon. With the assist, Power is now on a three-game point streak after scoring in each of her first three games. Saturday was also Power’s third straight multi-point game.

Junior goaltender Lindsey Hibbard (Princeton, Minn.) earned her first shutout of the season after registering 18 saves on the day. The win was her third of the season and now gives her a record of 3-0-0. Andrea Klug suffered the loss for the Cobbers after giving up two goals, while making 42 saves in her second loss of the season.

Gustavus finished with a 44-to-18 shots advantage and won 31-of-51 faceoffs. The Gusties also went 0-for-3 on the power play and 0-for-1 on the penalty kill.

Up next for Gustavus is a home-and-home series with Hamline University next Friday and Saturday. Gustavus will host Friday’s game at Don Robert’s Ice Rink at 7 p.m. and will make the trek to St. Paul for Saturday’s 7 p.m. game.
