MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s hockey team traveled to Augsburg Saturday night and tied Augsburg 2-2 in overtime. With the tie the Gusties record moves to 9-5-3 overall and 5-3-2 in the MIAC while the Auggies move to 8-6-3 overall and 5-3-2 in conference.

The game then went scoreless for over 40 minutes until late in the third period. With their goalie pulled and an extra attacker on the ice, the Auggies found the back of the net with just 1:19 remaining in the game to make it a one score contest. Augsburg won the ensuing face-off, dumped the puck into the Gustavus zone and pulled their goalie once again. Just 37 seconds after their first extra attacker goal, the Auggies evened the game up at 2-2 with another.
