The University of North Dakota women's hockey team shut down the Manitoba Bisons to complete the weekend exhibition sweep with a 10-0 win today at the Ralph Engelstad Arena.
Fighting Sioux freshmen Josefine Jakobsen (Aalborg, Denmark) recorded a hat-trick in today's showing to lead the European freshmen that combined for 11 points in the game.
Jakobsen had four points (3-1-4), Michelle Karvinen (Rodovre, Denmark) also had four points (1-3-4) and Andrea Dalen (Honefoss, Norway) had three points (1-2-3), including one goal disallowed after official review.
Those three were named the three stars of the game in respective order.
Junior Jocelyne Lamoureux (Grand Forks, N.D.) had a pair of nifty goals as well, scoring one in the first period and one on the power play midway through the second period.
Lamoureux, Monique Lamoureux-Kolls (Grand Forks, N.D.) and Alyssa Wiebe (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) did not play in the third period although combining for four goals and five assists in the first two frames.
