ST. CLOUD – Dani Cameranesi and Milica McMillen scored goals in the final two minutes to lift the No. 1-ranked Gophers women’s hockey team to a 4-3 WCHA victory over St. Cloud State at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center on Saturday.
The Gophers (12-0, 10-0 WCHA) trailed 3-2 before Cameranesi, a freshman from Blake, scored with 2:02 remaining to tie the score 3-3.
McMillen scored 53 seconds later to give the Gophers a 4-3 lead with 1:09 remaining.
“I’m so proud of our team and the way they battled and competed and found a way to tie that score on a great deflection by Cameranesi,” Gophers coach Brad Frost said. “Then to win it in regulation on just a high-level play from Milica was an incredible way to come back and win.”
The Gophers trailed 2-0 after the first period but senior Sarah Davis scored twice in a three-minute span in the second period to tie the score.
The Huskies (1-9-3, 1-8-2) took a 3-2 lead in the first minute of the third period on a goal by Lauren Hespenheide.
The victory was the 61st consecutive for the Gophers, who haven’t lost since Feb. 17, 2012.
