STEVENS POINT (PRESS RELEASE) – The Pointer women's hockey team tallied five third period goals to help complete the weekend series sweep of the Finlandia University Lions on Saturday afternoon, notching a 6-0 victory in Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) action at Ice Hawks Arena.
Kelsea Martalock tallied the Pointers loan goal of the first period, scoring at the 11:30 mark unassisted.
After a scoreless second period, the Pointers' offense came alive in the game's final period, as Ava Plamadon started the scoring with an even strength goal just 1:04 into the third.
Michelle Lunneborg, Dana Carothers, Erin Marvin and Keela Patterson all chipped in goals the rest of the way, as the Pointers picked up two points in the conference standings.
The Pointers out-shot the Lions 41-4 on the afternoon.
In her first action of the season, Carley Gorecki earned the victory in net, stopping all four shots on net by Finlandia.
UW-Stevens Point (8-1-0, 4-1-0 NCHA) are now off for the holiday break and will return to action January 4 with a conference tilt Tuesday evening against Lake Forest College in Illinois.
