Villila on crutches, but may miss rest of season for Minnesota-Duluth women

The Duluth News Tribune is reporting that Minnesota-Duluth senior defenseman Tea Villila remains on crutches after suffering a lower-body injury Nov. 21 at home against Cornell.

Villila has missed the last three games, but UMD coach Shannon Miller told the paper that Villila’s season isn’t over yet.

“Tea is going to try and make it back this season,” Miller said in the report. “She is stubborn [and] she is tough.”

Villila has one goals and six assists in 15 games for the Bulldogs this season.
