UND Women End Minnesota’s Streak

The UND women have ended Minnesota’s NCAA-record 62-game winning streak.

UND beat Minnesota 3-2 in Ridder Arena on Sunday afternoon thanks to goals by rookies Kayla Gardner, Gracen Hirschy and Susanna Tapani. In goal, rookie netminder Lexie Shaw stopped 32 of 34 shots.

It was Minnesota’s first loss since Feb. 17, 2012.

“We all knew we could do it,” Shaw said. “We knew we were going to come out with a win. We are a really tight-knit team. We’ve been working hard. We weren’t even looking for, ‘Lets end the streak.’ It was just another game. We expected ourselves to win because we have been playing well.”

        Yep. Folks on GPL are calling the program “classless” because the women’s hockey SID posted a meme as a joke.

        Gopher fans need to lighten up. It was an incredible run but was bound to come to an end at some point. The team earned everyone’s respect. FWIW, current and former UND women’s players tweeted kind words.

          Four people. Big deal. None of them actually used the word “classless” even though you put the word in quotes. Nice try.
