GRAND FORKS, N.D. --- Monique Lamoureux's offensive efforts aided the University of North Dakota women's hockey team in its 3-2 victory over RIT Friday night at Ralph Engelstad Arena.

North Dakota improves to 10-5-0 on the season (8-4-0 WCHA), while RIT falls to 6-6-2 on the year (1-3-2 CHA). With the win, UND tied its all-time program record winning streak of six games set during the 2003-04 season.

North Dakota opened the game on a strong note, tallying two goals in the first period, while holding RIT to one.

UND started off the scoring on a power play at the 7:47 mark of the first period. Josefine Jakobsen (Aalborg, Denmark) took a shot in front of the net and Monique Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.) buried the rebound.

At the 14:45 mark of the first period, Lamoureux found Michelle Karvinen (Rodovre, Denmark) unattended on the left side of the net. Karvinen buried the one-timer, tallying her third goal of the season while putting UND up 2-0.

UND's two-goal lead wouldn't last long, as RIT scored its first goal of the game under two minutes later. Kristina Moss's shot deflected off the skate of Lindsay Grigg and ended up in front of the net, where Kim Schlattman would put it in, closing the scoring margin to 2-1.

North Dakota's 2-1 advantage would hold into the first intermission.

Play during the second period went back and forth, each team providing itself with many scoring opportunities.

However, RIT was the only team to capitalize on these opportunities. At the 8:57 mark, Kourtney Kunichika maneuvered around a diving Jorid Dagfinrud (Sarpsborg, Norway) to tie the game at 2-2.

North Dakota regained the lead early in the third period, as Lamoureux scored her second power-play goal of the night at the 2:08 mark. Nearly identical to her first goal, Lamoureux found the net off a rebound on Jakobsen's shot, sealing UND's fate with a 3-2 nonconference victory.

North Dakota outshot RIT 28-17 while holding the Tigers to only two shots on goal in the third frame.

Dagfinrud compiled 15 saves in the winning effort, bringing her record to 6-2-0.

North Dakota returns to the Ralph Engelstad Arena Saturday night to finish the nonconference series against RIT.
