Gopher women defeat Huskies to open final series of season

The Gopher women’s hockey team extended their one year-plus winning streak Friday night to 41 straight games by defeating the St. Cloud State Huskies at the National Hockey Center, 2-0.

Freshman goaltender Amanda Leveille recorded the win by deflecting all 24 shots, but Minnesota generated 38 shots on net against the Huskies.

However, Minnesota wouldn’t find the back of the net until the second period when Rachel Ramsey broke through with her eighth goal of the season.

Maryanne Menefee would score 12 minutes into the second period which turned out to be the last goal of the game for either team.

Friday was also the 33rd anniversary of the Miracle on Ice at the Lake Placid Olympics. Ramsey’s father, Mike, played in the game against the Soviet Union.

The Gophers will face the Huskies again on Saturday afternoon with a chance to finish the season undefeated — the first to finish a perfect season in NCAA history.
