MEQUON, Wis. — No. 10 Wisconsin-Superior took just 12 skaters on its road trip to face Concordia (Wis.). In the end, the seven-hour trip each way was worth it as the Yellowjackets jumped to a 2-1 victory in front of a crowd of 102 at the Ozaukee Ice Center.
Freshman Dani Schultz continued her goal scoring tear at 13:19 of the second period. Sheryl Kaskiw and Chelsey Wierschem assisted on the even-strength goal.
The Yellowjackets took that 1-0 lead into the third period until Libby Otto evened the game at 1-1 at the 15:32 mark. Schultz then answered the bell again for the Yellowjackets when the team needed it most, knocking a wrist shot past Falcons’ goaltender Jennifer DeGeorge at 16:37 of the third period off Alison Shrift and Jenna Martin assists. The game-winning goal was Schultz’s team-leading 13th goal of the season and Martin picked up her first point as a Yellowjacket on the play.
Shanley Peters got the start in net for the Yellowjackets, and turned away 34 shots, while Jennifer DeGeorge stopped 37 shots for the Falcons. Both team finished 0-4 on the power play.
