MENDOTA HEIGHTS, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s hockey team battled the University of St. Thomas to a 2-2 tie in overtime during the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference opener on Friday night.

After the conference opener the Gustavus record moves to 1-1-1 overall (0-0-1 MIAC), while the Tommies are now 0-3-1 (0-0-1 MIAC).

A scoreless first period left the score knotted 0-0. Gustavus struck first halfway through the second period as Amelia Vosen (Fy., Anoka, Minn.) tallied her first collegiate goal with help from Katy Fuller (Jr., Minneapolis, Minn.) and Marina Chapman (So., South Haven, Minn.). Vosen also led the Black and Gold with seven shots on goal.

The Gusties led the Tommies 1-0 after two periods of play despite St. Thomas peppering goaltender Bailey Jackson (Fy., Chaska, Minn.) with shots as they recorded 31 through two periods of play.

Jackson made 41 saves in her collegiate debut. That mark stands as the most saves by a Gustie goaltender since the Gustie Women’s Hockey program’s first season of play, in 1997-98. Jennifer Zywotko made 55 saves in a 10-1 loss at Boston College, Feb. 5, 1998.

Eight minutes into the third period, Kathryn Larson got St. Thomas on the board with her second goal of the season, tieing the game at one a piece.

Emily Gustafson (Sr., Esko, Minn.) answered as the Gusties took a 2-1 advantage, posting an unassisted goal to notch her team-leading second goal of the season.

Gustavus was unable to keep its lead for the rest of the game as St. Thomas added another to tie the game with five minutes remaining in the contest. The score stood the same after the overtime period, resulting in a 2-2 stalemate.

Gustavus returns home tomorrow afternoon to take on St. Thomas at Don Roberts Ice Rink. Puck drop is set for 2 p.m.
