Just 11 games went in the record books this past weekend, but even as the schedule was light, the action was quite the opposite.
As far as ranked teams go, No. 10 Wisconsin-Superior swept Marian, but by no means was it an easy task.
Superior started out with a 7-2 win Friday night and then escaped with an 8-7 win Saturday afternoon.
Friday’s win featured 59 shots on Marian goalie Ali Glazer, while Saturday’s victory saw the Yellowjackets score three goals in the first 3:19 to take an 8-6 lead and then hold off a late push from the Sabres.
Fifth-ranked Gustavus Adolphus defeated No. 7 Wisconsin-Stevens Point 3-1 on Saturday as the Gusties scored three in the third, including the game-winner from Emily Reibert at 17:44.
No. 8 Adrian played to a 2-2 tie with Massachusetts-Boston. Kaylyn Schroka scored both for the Bulldogs and Alyssa Sullivan and Angela Dandreo tallied for UMB. Both goaltenders (Adrian’s Jade Walsh, UMB’s Moe Bradley) finished with 31 saves.
Obviously, expect the rankings to see somewhat of a shakeup this week.
In other action, Franklin Pierce went on the road and swept Canton, Potsdam took both at home from New England College, St. Scholastica and Augsburg both topped Wisconsin-Eau Claire, with Augsburg goalie Rebecca Sonnek picking up the 22-save shutout in a 2-0 win, and Bethel edged Concordia (Minn.) 4-3 in overtime Saturday as Megan Niblock played the role of overtime hero 45 seconds into extra time.
