Emma Gentry and Katie Kaufman scored the other two goals for St. Cloud State, and JoJo Chobak stopped 17 shots, including 5 on the power play. St. Cloud is now 16-15-2 on the year.

- The University of Minnesota earned the extra point by beating the U of M-Duluth in a shootout on Friday. The Bulldogs took an early 1-0 lead in the first period. Abbey Murphy would tie the game in the 2nd period with her 30th goal of the season. They would skate the rest of the way without scoring and go to the shootout. Skylar Vetter shut the Bulldogs out in the shootout and Ella Huber would push a goal across to get the Gophers the extra point in the conference standings.


-- The SCSU men’s hockey team lost in overtime to Western Michigan 4-3.  The Huskies got out to an early lead and held a 3-1 advantage going into the third. The Broncos would score twice in the first half of the third to tie things up at 3-3.  It looked like St. Cloud had won it with 1:38 to play on a goal by Veeti Miettinen but the replay determined no conclusive goal so the game went to overtime.  Western Michigan would score 2:00 minutes into overtime to steal the victory from St. Cloud State.


The St. Cloud Norsemen lost 3-2 in overtime to the North Iowa Bulls. Tyler Geyer and Hagen Moe scored for St. Cloud. They take on the Bulls again tonight.
