ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- There was no letdown this weekend for the UND women's hockey team.
The Sioux beat last-place St. Cloud State 5-1 on Saturday afternoon at the National Hockey Center, finishing off a two-game sweep of a team that has two wins in the last 49 games dating back to the 2009-10 season.
The third line of Monique Weber, Mary Loken and Allison Parizek led the way for the Sioux, who improved to 7-4-1 overall. All three of those players scored their second goal of the year, while Weber had two assists for a three-point game and Parizek had one assist for a two-point game.
Jocelyne Lamoureux continued her torrid pace with a goal and two assists for a three-point game. She leads the country with 30 points in 12 games.
Defenseman Candace Molle, who has been a standout as of late for the Sioux, tallied her first goal of the season and chipped in an assist, while helping the team limit St. Cloud State to just 20 shots on goal.
Backup goaltender Jorid Dagfinrud stopped 19 of those 20 shots to get her second win of the season. The only goal she allowed came off of the stick of Molli Mott during the third period. It was a power-play goal.
UND jumped all over St. Cloud State early one day after winning 6-2. The Sioux outshot the Huskies 12-4 in the opening frame and took a 2-0 lead on a power-play goal by Lamoureux at 55 seconds and an even-strength goal by Weber at 2:02.
Molle added to UND's lead at :41 of the second period, scoring a goal that was assisted by Lamoureux and Monique Lamoureux-Kolls. Weber and Josefine Jakobsen assisted on Parizek's even-strength goal at 5:52, which made it 4-0 Sioux.
Roseau, Minn., product Abby Ness assisted on Mott's goal, which was followed by a tally from UND's Roseau player. Loken buried a late power-play goal for the final margin.
The Sioux have now won six straight games against St. Cloud State, which dropped to 1-10-1.
UND has next weekend off before returning home to take on Minnesota State-Mankato.
