Grace Zumwinkle scored two goals and Amy Potomak had a goal and an assist for the Gophers women’s hockey team in a 4-1 nonconference victory over Yale on Sunday, completing a series sweep at Ridder Arena.
Sarah Potomak added two assists for the Gophers (17-1-3), who are ranked No. 2. The Gophers, who defeated Yale 6-3 on Saturday, built a 3-0 lead Sunday before Yale scored a power-play goal in the third period. The Gophers outshot Yale 39-18.
“I thought our team responded well today, in particular defensively we played much better, stopping pucks and being strong on our sticks,” Gophers coach Brad Frost said. “We had a lot of great chances. Their goaltender played well. Overall, it was just a really solid game for 60 minutes for our team, and we’re happy with the sweep.”
