MINNEAPOLIS -- The St. Cloud State women's hockey team was blanked and beaten last night 12-0 against the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

The Gophers were simply overpowering - putting up 35 shots and nine goals in just the first two periods against SCSU goalie Julie Friend.

Minnesota added three more goals in the final period to cap off a forgettable game for the Huskies.

With the loss, the Huskies drop to 5-12-1 on the season and will remain in Minneapolis to play the Gophers again tonight.
