GRAND FORKS, N.D. – A much improved Lindenwood team returned to Ralph Engelstad Arena Friday night, having lost to UND, 14-0, two years ago, but the No. 4/8 University of North Dakota women’s hockey team proved again to be the better squad, downing the Lady Lions, 5-1.

North Dakota (1-0-0) scored three power-play goals, while shutting down the Lindenwood (0-2-1) power-play unit a total of eight times.

Sophomore netminder Shelby Amsley-Benzie proved to be a key component of the UND penalty-kill unit, making nearly half of her saves in the contest shorthanded. Amsley-Benzie totaled 15 saves on the night, seven during Lindenwood power plays.

Playing in their first collegiate game, freshmen Susanna Tapani, Kayla Gardner and Halli Krzyzaniak wasted no time notching their first career points. Tapani assisted on both of Josefine Jakobsen’s first-period power-play goals, while Gardner helped on Jakobsen’s first goal and Krzyzaniak helped on the latter.

Three more freshmen followed suit with their first career points later in the game.

Lisa Marvin and Amy Menke picked up assists on a goal by Layla Marvin in the second period. After creating a turnover at the blue line, Menke dished the puck over to Lisa who went into the Lindenwood zone on a two-on-one with her older sister. Lisa drew the defender out of position before passing over to Layla who finished the play with a backdoor goal.

Gracen Hirschy was the last freshman of the game to record a point, but the first freshman of the season to score a goal. After a scramble in the slot, Hirschy picked up the puck and fired a wrister into the back of the net to give UND a 4-1 lead.

Newly appointed captains, Andrea Dalen (A) and Michelle Karvinen (C), along with Jakobsen, capped off the UND scoring with a power-play goal at the 8:32 mark of the third period.

Lindenwood’s lone goal came off an unlucky break behind the UND net in the second period. Kendra Broad created a turnover behind the net, and with Amsley-Benzie following the play the other way, slid the puck into an unopposed opening.

North Dakota and Lindenwood wrap up the weekend series back at Ralph Engelstad Arena on Saturday at 7:07 p.m.
