The Gusties, in search of their first win in three games, were out-shot by UW-Eau Claire 31-25 and were unable to climb back from an early deficit.

1:29 into the game, the Blugolds capitalized on a turnover nearby the Gustie goal.¬†Todd¬†Koritzinsky’s unassisted goal stood as the eventual game-winner as UW-Eau Claire netminder Zach Dyment turned away each Gustavus chance.
