No. 4 Bulldogs skate Buckeyes into overtime, but fall in final minute
In a rematch of March’s NCAA Championship game, where Ohio State University (OSU) came out the victors, the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) women’s hockey team would fall in overtime to the Buckeyes in Ohio on Friday.
Trailing twice Clara Van Wieren and Maggie Flaherty would score tying goals in the second and third periods to force overtime when regulation ended 2-2.
However the Buckeyes’ Jenna Buglioni got the last say with under a minute to go to earn the 3-2 win and hand UMD their first loss. Emma Soderberg tallied 29 saves in net for UMD.
UMD (6-1) will fight for revenge against OSU (7-0) in their series finale Saturday. Puck drop is set for 2 p.m.
