Women's Hockey - Nikki Kothenbeutel, Forward, 5-7, Junior, Sauk Rapids, Minn./Sauk Rapids-Rice
Kothenbeutel was part of both Blugolds goals this weekend as the team hosted Adrian College (Mich.) twice. After the Blugolds narrowly fell 1-0 Friday night, they played another close game Saturday but again lost by one goal (3-2). Kothenbeutel assisted on the Blugolds’ first goal of the game, 2:23 into the second period, which tied the score at one. After Adrian again took the lead later in the second period, Kothenbeutel scored her first goal of the season to tie the game back up early in the final period. But, Adrian scored one goal with less than six minutes remaining to beat the Blugolds 3-2.
