GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Minnesota State used two third-period goals to defeat the University of North Dakota women's hockey team, 2-1, on Sunday afternoon at Ralph Engelstad Arena.

With the win, the Mavericks capped off a weekend sweep of UND. It was the first time since the 2006-2007 season that North Dakota was swept by Minnesota State.

With the loss, North Dakota fell to 17-9-4 (14-8-4-2 WCHA), but remains in third place in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association standings, while Minnesota State improves to 12-19-1 (7-18-1-0 WCHA) and is in seventh place.

UND was leading 1-0 until the 11:44 mark of the third period, when the Mavericks’ Kari Lundberg tied the game with a power-play goal. Lauren Barnes found Lundberg at the backdoor for the easy one-timer.

With only three and a half minutes remaining in the contest, Minnesota State took a 2-1 lead after knocking in a loose puck that was sitting just outside of the goal line. North Dakota goaltender Lexie Shaw made the initial save on a drive to the net by Tracy McCann, but UND couldn’t clear the puck away before Nicole Germaine tapped it in.

The loss was disappointing for North Dakota, who dominated the first 40 minutes of play. UND took a 1-0 lead early in the first, when Meghan Dufault poked home a loose puck off of a scramble in front of Minnesota State goaltender Danielle Butters.

Butters was the difference maker again in net for the Mavericks, making 40 saves total to keep North Dakota off the board for the rest of the game. She totaled 85 saves on the weekend for the two wins.

UND pressured heavily in the second period and earned some great chances, highlighted by a scramble in front of the net, which was reviewed, and a Gracen Hirschy shorthanded breakaway. Despite throwing 19 shots at Butters, North Dakota couldn’t extend its lead.

North Dakota returns to action next weekend for its final series of the regular season, with a road test against Ohio State on Feb. 21-22.
