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.”
