Unsung heroes on a frantic Friday for No. 2-rated Gophers:

• Dalianliz Rosado. The junior defensive specialist will do anything to keep a ball alive, including a couple off her collarbone.

• Katie Schau. Listed at 5-8, she's a senior who seldom catches your eye, and then she makes a marvelous dig to create the winning point.

• Maddie Beal. Out of nowhere, the seldom-used junior was subbed in during the fifth set and gave a defensive presence at the net.
