Sioux come up just short Saturday and in attempt of regular season sweep over Huskies

The Fighting Sioux concluded their regular-season action against WCHA rival St. Cloud State taking three-of-four games this season. The Sioux won both games in Grand Forks earlier this season by one goal, took the opening game of the Series in St. Cloud, Minn., 3-1, before dropping its first game of the year against the Huskies on Saturday, 3-2.

Senior captain Casie Hanson had her best weekend of the season for the Sioux as she scored the game-winning goal on Friday and both Sioux goals on Saturday for a three-point weekend.

"Casie has had some unbelievably good practices as of late," Brian Idalski said. "She has just been terrific and I am not surprised she is having success back on the ice again. She is the heart and soul of our team."

Brittany Kirkham backstopped the Sioux to its win on Friday with 43 saves allowing just one goal.
