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.
