GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- An offensive show was on display Friday night at Ralph Engelstad Arena, as the University of North Dakota women's hockey team opened the 2013-14 season with a 12-1 exhibition win against Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy.

North Dakota received scoring from 10 separate players in the outing, with senior Michelle Karvinen and junior Josefine Jakobsen both scoring twice. Freshmen Susanna Tapani, Gracen Hirschy, Kayla Gardner, Lisa Marvin and redshirt freshman Marissa Salo all scored recorded scores in their first outing wearing the green and white.

With the game being an exhibition, the 1,357 fans in attendance were treated to extra hockey, as the two sides played a five-minute overtime period followed by a five-round shootout after regulation was completed.

UND shared goaltending duties between Shelby Amsley-Benzie, Lexie Shaw and Amanda Koep, with each goalie starting a period of play. Koep played the entire overtime period and faced all of POE’s shooters in the shootout as well.

North Dakota wasted no time starting its offensive blitz, scoring just 42 seconds after the puck was dropped. Andrea Dalen received a backdoor pass from Jakobsen for the tally.

Karvinen and Salo added scores in the latter half of the first period to make it a 3-0 scoreline before the first intermission.

Freshman defender Halli Krzyzaniak, a Pursuit of Excellence alum, recorded an assist on Salo’s goal. Krzyzaniak fired a shot from the point which Salo deflected in front of the net for the game’s third goal.

The second period started off slow as no goals were scored in the first 13 minutes of play. Jakobsen ended the scoreless streak in the period at the 13:57 mark. Less than three minutes later, the combo of Tapani and Hirschy then combined for a pair of goals separated by only 18 seconds. Gardner tallied UND’s fourth goal of the period within the final two minutes of the second.

Pursuit of Excellence got on the board after Amy Potomak created a breakaway with 16 seconds remaining in the second period.

North Dakota clamped down defensively in the third, as POE was not allowed a single shot on goal. Sophomore Meghan Dufault, Tanja Eisenschmid and Jakobsen all posted goals to make it 10-1 by the time the final horn blew.

During the four-on-four overtime, Karvinen and freshman Lisa Marvin added a goal each to bring the final score to 12-1.

In the shootout, Amy Potomak once again found the back of the net, but would be the only POE player to do so. Shannon Kaiser and Becca Kohler both scored to give UND the 2-1 win in the shootout.

In net, Amsley-Benzie made a total of five saves during the first period. Shaw recorded four saves during the second period and Koep only needed to make one save during the overtime session.

UND outshot POE by a total of 60-11, and neither side converted on the power play, with North Dakota going 0-2 and POE going 0-3 on the man advantage.

North Dakota begins regular-season play next weekend at home hosting Lindenwood for a Friday-Saturday series, Oct. 4-5. Friday’s game is set to begin at 7:07 p.m.
