No. 1 Liberty 4, No. 3 Minot State 1
LYNCHBURG, Va. – The Minot State women’s hockey team’s first shot at a road upset came up short Thursday night.
The third-ranked Beavers (15-7-1 overall) got a power-play goal from Sydney Spicer midway through the second period, cutting the host Flames lead in half, but two third-period goals for top-ranked Liberty lifted them to a 4-1 win over Minot State.
The two teams play again in Virginia on Friday night in the second of a three-game series.
The Flames (19-1-0) took a 1-0 lead in the first period and stretched the lead to 2-0 early in the second period before Spicer scored.
The Beavers comeback came up short, though, as the host Flames netted two goals in the third to ice the win.
