Women’s Final: UND 3, Duluth 3 (UND Wins SO)

Full lines and live chat are below.

First period

UND 1, Duluth 0 — Gracen Hirschy (Michelle Karvinen, Becca Kohler) 14:55. UND brings the puck in the zone and there’s a scramble for it in the slot area. Nobody gets it and Hirschy steps up to pick up the loose puck and snipe it stick side.

Second period

UND 2, Duluth 0 — Susanna Tapani 13:06. Tapani has the puck in the outside of the left circle and takes a bad angle shot from the bottom of the circle that goes five-hole on Black.

UND 2, Duluth 1 — Meghan Huertas (Lara Stalder, Zoe Hickel) 14:42. Stalder launches a shot from the point that goes off of Dalen’s stick to Huertas at the side of the net. Huertas makes a perfect re-direct to the corner of the net.

UND 2, Duluth 2 — Zoe Hickel (Tea Villila, Brienna Gillanders) 17:57 (pp). Duluth throws a puck to the crease area, where Eisenschmid tries to swat it out of danger. Her clearing attempt goes right to Hickel at the side of the net, though, and Hickel puts it in.

Duluth 3, UND 2 — Meghan Huertas (Lara Stalder, Tea Villila) 18:48. A defensive breakdown gives Duluth a breakaway. Amsley-Benzie goes for the poke-check and misses, and Huertas puts it away easily.

Third period

Duluth 3, UND 3 — Josefine Jakobsen (Amy Menke, Gracen Hirschy) 16:22. Hirschy launches a point shot that Black stops. Jakobsen picks up the rebound on top of the crease, waits for the goalie to go down, moves it to her forehand and roofs it to tie the game.
