PSU Women’s Ice Hockey falls to Augsburg

(Game Box

            MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - Freshman Alison Ulseth (Orono, Minn.) scored a goal and added an assist Saturday afternoon, leading Augsburg College in its third straight women's ice hockey victory, a 5-3 non-conference decision over visiting Plymouth State University (N.H.) at the Augsburg Ice Arena.

            Eight different Augsburg (3-10-0 overall) players figured in the scoring, and the Auggies outshot Plymouth State (0-9-0) by a 60-19 margin.

            Three of Augsburg's goals came on special teams -- a power-play goal by Ulseth in the first period and shorthanded goals by freshman Kali Holst (Mound, Minn.) and senior Tiffany Magnuson (Green Bay, Wis.). Holst scored her fifth goal in the last three games, and team-high ninth of the season, while Magnuson claimed her first goal of the year and the 57th of her Auggie career.

            Sophomores Jenna Knudtson (Austin, Minn.) and Brya Erickson (New Brighton, Minn.) also scored goals for the Auggies, and junior Sara Toft (Alexandria, Minn.) had two assists.

            Sophomore Elizabeth Murray (Woburn, Mass.), junior Amanda Arponen (Plymouth, Mass.) and freshman Jaimie Camara (Portsmouth, R.I.) had a goal and assist apiece for Plymouth State, with freshman Tina Worley (Anchorage, Alaska) and senior Amanda Kreamer (Lynn, Mass.) adding assists.

            Augsburg goalie Grace Edgar (Plano, Texas) stopped 16 shots to claim her first collegiate victory. Senior Lindsay DeLorie (Holliston, Mass.) made 55 saves for the Panthers in a losing effort.

            Augsburg returns to Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play next Friday and Saturday (1/16-17) with a series against St. Benedict. Plymouth State finishes its three-game trip to Minnesota on Monday (1/12) at 3 p.m. with a game at Bethel.
