ST. CLOUD, Minn. – The Gustavus Adolphus College women’s hockey team used two power play goals to skate to a 2-2 tie against the College of Saint Benedict on Friday evening at Dave Torrey Arena. The tie moves Gustavus to 3-3-3 overall and 2-1-2 in the MIAC, while Saint Benedict moves to 1-5-1 overall and 0-4-1 in the conference.

Despite controlling the first period shot count 13-5, Gustavus was not able to put home a goal and went into the first intermission tied 0-0 with the Blazers. In the second period, Saint Benedict initiated the game’s scoring just 1:05 into the period on Allison Kirk’s first goal of the season off an assist from Siri Berg-Moberg.

Gustavus fired back just under five minutes later, when Katy Fuller (So., Minneapolis, Minn.) scored her third goal of the season on a power play opportunity off assists from Laine Fischer (Fy., Northfield, Minn.) and Erin Moes (Fy., Hastings, Minn.).

Midway through the third period, Erica Power (So., Lakeville, Minn.) put the Gusties up 2-1 on another power play goal on an assist from Courtney Bethune (Jr., Fort Frances, Ontario).

From that point, Gustavus looked as though it had locked up a victory, but the Blazers pulled goalie Angel Hillstrom at the 18:48 mark in the third and the Saint Benedict’s leading scorer coming into the game, Brigette Miller, was able to put home an extra-attacker goal at the 18:53 mark to tie the game. Neither team was able to find the net in the overtime period, and the game finished in a 2-2 draw.

The Gusties doubled Saint Benedict’s shot count 40-20, won the faceoff count 36-14, and were only penalized once. Amanda DiNella (Fy., Oakbrook Terrace, Ill.) earned the tie between the pipes, moving her record to 2-3-2 on the year.

Gustavus and Saint Benedict conclude their series tomorrow at Don Roberts Ice Rink at 2 p.m.
