GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- During a two-week break from regular season action, University of North Dakota women's hockey head coach wanted the young Fighting Sioux team to improve it's offense. Something seems to have clicked. The Fighting Sioux rolled to a 9-0 win with many of the point scored by the freshmen group.

The Sioux combined for 23 points in the game with with 14 of them coming by way of freshman. Holly Perkins (Soldotha, Alaska) led the way with two goals and two assists while Allison Parizek (Minot, N.D.) had two goals and an assist and Ashley Furia (Sedalia, Colo.) and Jessica Harren (Woodbury, Minn.) had two points a piece.

Entering the first intermission it was still closely contested as sophomore Ashley Holmes (Miltona, Minn.) had the games lone goal at 7:04 with the helper going to Perkins. The Sioux outshot the Maple Leafs 13 to 1 though in the period.

The game opened up in the second period as UND scored four goals coming by Stephanie Roy (Grande Digue, New Brunswick), Alyssa Wiebe (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan/2) and Perkins.

It turned into a route in the final stanza even though it was the closest of all the periods as the Sioux edged the Maple Leafs 13 to 11 in shots, but added four more goals for the decisive 9-0 shutout win. Parizek netted two goals while Margot Miller (West Bloomfield, Mich.) and Perkins scored.

The Sioux wanted to work on things this weekend with one of them being their power-play opportunities. UND would conclude the game 2-of-4 with the man-advantage while holding Manitoba 0-for-2.

Stephanie Ney (100 Mile House, British Columbia) and Jorid Dagfinrud (Sarpsborg, Norway) combined for the shutout making four and 13 saves, respectively. The Sioux put 44 shots on Maple Leafs netminder Alex Fenner.

Former Sioux players Stasia Bakhit and Melissa Jaques suited up for the Maple Leafs.

The Fighting Sioux return to action next weekend as they will host the Maine Black Bears in a Friday/Saturday series with both games starting at 2:07 p.m. Both games will be played in the Olympic Rink at the Ralph Englestad Arena.
