UMD Women Lose in Overtime

The scoring summary from UMDBulldogs.com

UMD struck first behind the power-play prowess of rookie forward Brienna Gillanders, who netted her fourth career goal -- and power-play tally -- seven minutes into the opening period.  Gillanders, whose score was assisted by Elin Holmlov and Jocelyne Larocque, has now recorded a point in her last four games.  At 11:45, the Bulldogs took a stunning 2-0 lead on sophomore forward Pernilla Winberg's fifth goal of the season, with assists to Holmlov and Haley Irwin, and just like that, UMD took a two goal advantage into the first intermission.

Wisconsin pulled to within a goal just 2:58 into the second period on a power-play tally by Brianna Decker, but the score would hold steady at 2-1 until late in the third stanza.  With just 25 seconds remaining in regulation, Geena Prough found a way to beat UMD senior netminder Kim Martin to equalize, sending the Bulldogs and Badgers into their 17th skate with extra time.

It only took Decker and Wisconsin 10 seconds into overtime to pull out the 3-2 victory over UMD, however, and with the loss, UMD slips to 9-4-0 and 7-4-0 in the WCHA and 4-3 against opponents ranked in the top-ten.

Martin made 35 stops for the Bulldogs, while her Wisconsin counterpart in net, Alex Rigsby, made 37 saves for the 12-1-0 and 8-1-0 Badgers.  UMD was 1-of-5 on the power-play, Wisconsin 1-of-4, and the Bulldogs just barely outshot Wisconsin 39-38.

UMD Women Split With Bemidji State University

On Friday the Bulldogs dropped a 1-0 game, despite 30 saves by Kim Martin.  Former Grand Rapids/Greenway star Emily Erickson scored for the Beavers, on the powerplay, with 6:35 left in the third period.  The ‘Dogs put 38 shots on Zuzana Tomcikova but couldn’t put one in the net.

On Saturday, the Dogs beat the Beavers 3-1.  Audrey Cournoyer scored her 5th goal of the season, which was matched by Erickson scoring her 5th to tie the game at 1.  Brienna Gillanders scored her first career Bulldog goal, the eventual game winner, on the powerplay at 10:07 of the first period.  Elin Holmlov scored her 4th of the season with 6:29 left in the third period to give the ‘Dogs a 2 goal lead that held to the finish.   Kim Martin started again for UMD, stopping 27 of 28 shots she faced, while Tomcikova stopped 31 of 34 on her net.

UMD is off for a week while the 4 Nations Cup tournament takes place, before Ohio State comes to the DECC November 19/20th.  The game on the 19th starts at 7:30 due to the Christmas City of the North Parade.
