LAST ACTION: North Dakota lost 2-0 to Minnesota in the WCHA Final Face-Off Saturday at Ridder Arena in an exciting hockey game that was back-and-forth.

Minnesota goals were scored by Megan Bozek and Maryanne Menefee at 4:33 and 6:28 of the second period as the Gophers claimed their second-consecutive WCHA tournament championship.

UND jumped out to a 71 advantage in shots in the first period, but Noora Raty was up to the task in net and the Gophers got the better pressure late in the period. UND edged the Gophers 11-10 in shots in the first frame.

A late penalty in the first period and two in the second period swung the momentum in favor of the home team. On its second power play of the game, Minnesota had a goal waved off for a high stick, but only 18 seconds later Bozek found a lane through traffic and past UND netminder Shelby Amsley-Benzie, who concluded with 32 saves. After some great pressure by UND that it failed to convert, UM would clear it out of the zone and Menefee would intercept a breakout pass for an unassisted breakaway goal. It pushed the lead to 2-0 before the second intermission.

UND would receive its first two power-play attempts in the third period but failed to convert and its rally attempt came up short as Raty concluded the game perfect with 30 saves. Almost nearly as impressive was the Gophers defensemen that blocked 20 shots in the game limiting the UND opportunities from even reaching the net.

UND beat Wisconsin 2-1 Friday at Ridder Arena. The win advances UND to its first WCHA Final Face-Off championship in school history tomorrow at 7:07 p.m.

UND scored the game's first two goals. Senior Ashley Furia deflected a Tanja Eisenschmid shot into the net at 12:36 of the first period. Monique Lamoureux made it 2-0 at 6:04 of the third period, beating UW goalie Alex Rigby on the shortside.

UND goaltender Shelby Amsley-Benzie was great throughout, however, the Badgers were able to end the shutout bid at 16:17 of the third period. Erika Sowchuck buried a centering pass from Lauren Unser to cut the lead to 2-1.

However, it was all UND from there, as North Dakota held on for the win.
