College women’s hockey: No. 2 Gusties prove too much for ’Jackets
Gustavus uses the power play to power past UWS in the third period of their nonconference contest.
ST. PETER, Minn. — Clara Billings had two goals and two assists as nationally second-ranked Gustavus turned it on late to down Wisconsin-Superior 7-0 in nonconference women’s hockey before 310 fans at Don Roberts Ice Rink.
After a scoreless first period, Hannah Gray opened the scoring at 8:35 in the second period on an assist by Heather Olinger.
That’s how it would stay until Hailey Holland scored on the power play at 5:10 in the third as Gustavus erupted for six goals in the period, including five on the power play.
Goalies Maria Widen, Katie McCoy and Jori Jones each played a period and only needed to make a combined five saves to get the shutout for the Gusties (6-0).
Rose Beeman had 47 saves for the Yellowjackets (3-2), who return to WIAC action 7 p.m. Friday against visiting Northland at Wessman Arena.
