GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The University of North Dakota wrapped up the 2013 portion of the season with a 7-0 exhibition win against the Manitoba Maple Leafs at Ralph Engelstad Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Meghan Dufault led UND, scoring the first two goals of the game and the team’s fifth, recording a hat trick. Michelle Karvinen tallied three assists, including two on Dufault’s first-two goals.

Goaltenders Shelby Amsley-Benzie and Lexie Shaw combined for the shutout effort, with Amsley-Benzie making nine saves and Shaw making six.

There were familiar faces on the ice as the Manitoba Maple Leafs recruited former UND players for the afternoon. Melissa Jaques, Ashley Paulson, Margot Miller, Ashley Holmes and Ashley Furia all made the trek out of retirement. Miller earned the game’s third star of the game after a solid night of defense, including blocking two shots on goal.

In addition to Dufault’s three goals, North Dakota received scoring from Sam LaShomb, Samantha Hanson, Amy Menke and Lisa Marvin. Johanna Fallman recorded two assists, while Marvin and Menke also tallied an assist in addition to their goals; as those three, along with Karvinen and Dufault, recorded multi-point nights.

Manitoba was only able to muster five shots on goal each period, for a game total of 15. North Dakota peppered the Maple Leafs’ goalie Alix Fenner with 55 shots.

After the game, the two sides conducted a five-round shootout. Manitoba received goals from Janelle Kohanchuk and Furia to win the shootout 2-1, as Karvinen was the only UND player to score.

UND now takes a break for the holiday season, returning to the ice for a WCHA series at No. 2 Wisconsin on Jan. 11-12.
