ST. CLOUD – The Gophers’ two streaks are still alive.
The No. 2 Minnesota women’s hockey team beat St. Cloud State 4-1 on Friday night in WCHA hockey to extend its NCAA-best current unbeaten streak to 13 games (10-0-3).
It also was the Gophers’ 11th consecutive win over SCSU, including three this season.
The Gophers (18-1-3, 10-1-2-1 WCHA) fell behind 1-0 when
Hallie Theodosopoulos of SCSU scored at 3 minutes, 27 seconds of the second period on a power-play goal.
But before the period ended, Minnesota took the lead on goals by Taylor Heise and Madeline Wethington.
Catie Skaja increased the Gophers’ lead to 3-1 early in the third, and Katie Robinson made it 4-1 in the 12th minute.
“A solid win on the road here tonight,” Gophers coach Brad Frost said. “Proud of our team. Got down a goal there but fought back to get two more in the second period and then extended the lead and put the game away.”
Sydney Scobee had 20 saves for the Gophers, Emma Polusny 34 for the Huskies.
