Women’s Hockey Falls At Augsburg For Series Split

Posted on November 19th, 2016 by


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s hockey team was shut out by Augsburg College Saturday evening by a score of 1-0 at Ed Saugestad Rink.

Despite outshooting Augsburg by a mark of 12-3 in the first period, an Auggie goal late in the period proved to be worthy.

With under three minutes remaining in the first, Katy Fuller (Jr., Minneapolis, Minn.) took a slashing penalty and the Auggies took advantage, posting the eventual game-winner on the man advantage. Darby Lindgren scored her first of the season past Gustie goalie Bailey Jackson (Fy., Chaska, Minn.), giving Augsburg a 1-0 lead to swap results with Gustavus after a 1-0 Gustie Friday night at Don Roberts Ice Rink.

For the first time this season, the Gusties are shut out and move to 2-3-1 overall on the season, 1-2-1 in MIAC play. Augsburg moves to 6-2 (3-2 MIAC).

The Black and Gold poured on the offense, leading Augsburg in total shots, 33-17. However, the Gusties were unable to put one past Auggie netminder Rebecca Sonnek, who tallied 33 saves to record her second shutout of the season. Erica Power (Jr., Lakeville, Minn.) and Kaitlyn Klein (Jr., Plymouth, Minn.) each tallied five shots on goal to lead the Gusties.

Gustavus was also unable to take advantage of five power play opportunities, as they fall to 4-23 in overall power play chances through six games.

The Gusties return to action Tuesday night for a non-conference matchup, hosting the University of Wisconsin-Superior at Don Roberts Ice Rink.
