GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- After a scoreless draw the day before, four special-team goals were scored, as the University of North Dakota women's hockey team found itself on the losing end of a 3-1 game against Wisconsin on Saturday night at Ralph Engelstad Arena.

North Dakota controlled the play in Friday’s contest, but Wisconsin adjusted on defense to limit the amount of time UND spent in the offensive zone. Wisconsin outshot North Dakota 25-21 in the game.

Neither team could break the weekend stalemate in the first period, as both sides posted 85 minutes of scoreless hockey. That all changed in the second period when North Dakota went on its first power play of the game. However, it wasn’t in UND’s favor.

After a missed pass went the length of the ice, UW’s Karley Sylvester got to it first and walked in on UND’s Lexie Shaw to score an unassisted shorthanded goal. Fortunately, North Dakota responded on the same power play, with Michelle Karvinen capping off a series of great passes for a backdoor goal to even the score at 1-1.

In the third period Wisconsin gained three power-play chances and scored on two of them to take a 3-1 lead.

North Dakota tried to muster a rally with less than four minutes to go, as UND pulled Shaw for an extra attacker while on a power play for a six-on-four advantage. Wisconsin’s strict defense withheld the last minute barrage by UND to claim the 3-1 win.

Making her fourth start in net this season, Shaw made 22 saves, while Rigsby made 20 saves for her eighth win of the season.

UND returns to the ice next weekend at Ralph Engelstad Arena hosting the Russian Women’s National Team for a two-game exhibition series Friday and Saturday, Nov. 29-30. Both game will be played at 2:07 p.m.
