MANKATO, Minn. - Minnesota State women's hockey held a 36-17 edge in shots on goal, but suffered a 4-1 setback against Lindenwood in a nonconference game on Saturday afternoon at Verizon Center.
With the loss, Minnesota State (3-14-1) split its two-game series with Lindenwood (4-11-1).
After neither team scored in the first period, Lindenwood scored the first two goals of the second period to take a 2-0 lead over Minnesota State. The goals were scored by Sierra Burt at 12:26 and Britannia Gillanders at 13:18. However, the Mavericks fought back and senior forward Hannah Davidson scored her second goal of the series - her fourth of the season - at 14:33 of the period to make the score 2-1 going into the second intermission. Senior forward Sara Bustad and sophomore defenseman Jordan Jackson assisted on the play.
The Mavericks outshot the Lions 11-6 in the third period, but were unable to score and the Lions capitalized on two of their opportunities to make the final score 4-1. Kirsten Martin scored the final two goals for Lindenwood at 2:04 and 8:37 of the third period.
