DULUTH, Minn. -- The UND women's team didn't generate much offense during the weekend.
But one late burst Sunday afternoon allowed the Sioux to salvage one point out of the weekend with a 2-2 tie against Minnesota-Duluth in AmsOil Arena. The Bulldogs earned an extra point by winning the shootout 1-0.
Down two goals with time running out, the Sioux found the back of the net twice in the final 4 minutes, 48 seconds to even it up.
Freshman Josefine Jakobsen batted in a rebound of a Jocelyne Lamoureux shot at 15:12 of the third to cut the Bulldog lead to 2-1. Then, with goalie Stephanie Ney pulled for an extra attacker, rookie Michelle Karvinen re-directed a Lamoureux point shot with 17 seconds left.
Sioux junior Monique Lamoureux-Kolls, who assisted on both goals, nearly won it in overtime, blowing by a Bulldog defender on a rush and getting two attempts from down low. Bulldog goaltender Jennifer Harss stood her ground, though.
UND lost the opening game of the series 6-1 and had a rough start to the series finale, getting outshot 14-7 in the first period, then allowing two goals in the second.
Duluth freshman defenseman Bridget Lacquette sent a point shot through traffic that managed to find its way in at 1:10 of the second period. Later in the frame, Audrey Cournoyer sniped home a rebound of her own shot from the right circle to make it 2-0 with a power-play goal. Cournoyer finished the weekend with five points.
Harss stopped shootout attempts by Karvinen, Lamoureux-Kolls and Jakobsen, while Pernilla Winberg scored in the third round for the Bulldogs to get the extra point in the standings.
With three points on the weekend, Lamoureux remains tied for the national lead with 24 on the season.
UND travels to St. Cloud State on Friday and Saturday to take on a 1-8-1 Husky team.
