Despite putting a barrage of shots on net late in the game, the Wisconsin women's hockey team (7-3-0 overall, 5-3-0 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) could not tie the game against the University of Minnesota-Duluth Saturday night and fell to the Bulldogs 2-1 on the road.
With 46 seconds left, Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson pulled junior goaltender Meghan Horras to give the Badgers an extra skater. Although the Badgers had several chances, they could not score the equalizer, which would have sent the game into overtime.
UMD (7-0-1) freshman defender Rachael Drazan struck first, scoring less than two minutes into the game. But neither team struck often; UMD sophomore forward Noemie Marin tallied the Bulldogs' second goal 35 seconds into the third period on a power-play opportunity.
Down 2-0, junior forward Cyndy Kenyon took a deflected shot from senior defenseman Carla MacLeod and put it past UMD sophomore goaltender Riita Schaublin for a shorthanded goal, putting the Badgers back in the game. Both teams fought a penalty-laden third period, with six power-play opportunities for UMD and nine for UW.
Horras finished the night with 17 saves and two goals allowed while UMD netminder Schaublin had 33 saves.
