Sioux split series against defending national champs

After a disappointing Saturday game where UND lost 6-2 at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center against Minnesota Duluth, the Sioux bounced back with a 4-0 shutout over the defending national champions.

It was the first WCHA road series for the Sioux who needed a win to remain in a strong position to finish the season in the top half of the WCHA standings for the first time ever.

Freshman goaltender Stephanie Ney came up big in the win with her first career shutout while stoping a career high 45 saves against the Bulldogs.

Senior Melissa Jaques scored her seventh and eighth goals of the year on Sunday moving her closer to topping all three of the programs major scoring records in a career. Jaques needs five points to become the school’s all-time leading point scorer. Liz Funk (2002-06) currently holds the record with 67. She can also become the school’s all-time leading goal scorer. She has 30 career goals, seven shy of Stasia Bakhit’s (2002-04) school record of 35 and trails Funk’s record of 35 career assists by two.
