ST. PETER, Minn. (blugolds.com) – The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire women's hockey team came up short on Tuesday night, falling to Gustavus Adolphus College, 3-2.
The Gusties got on the board first with a power play goal late in the first period, but the second period was all Eau Claire.
Courtney Wittig (So. – Green Bay, WI/Bay Port) buried a shot at the 5:19 mark, notching her ninth goal of the season to even the score at one apiece.
The Gusties weren't done, however, as they would score two goals within three minutes to take a 3-2 advantage to take home the win.
Erin Connolly (Fr. – Mequon, WI/Homestead) took the loss in goal, recording 31 saves on the night.
The Blugolds (6-4, 1-1 WIAC) will return to Hobbs Monday, December 5 as they host Saint Benedict at 7 p.m.
