Duluth, Minn. - The University of Connecticut women's ice hockey team fell at No. 4 Minnesota-Duluth, 4-0 this afternoon at The DECC in Duluth, Minn.

The UMD duo of Haley Irwin and Audrey Cournoyer each scored two goals for the Bulldogs, while Kim Martin made 21 saves in net.

The Huskies had a much stronger offense this afternoon, posting 21 shots on goal, including eight in the second period. Freshman Alexandra Vakos (Hamden, Conn.) led UConn with five shots against the Bulldogs, while Kelly Horan (Methuen, Mass.), Taylor Gross (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and Maude Blain (Magog, Que.) each tallied three.

UConn's best chance came at the beginning of the second period, when the Huskies were able to post six shots during a power play, including four on net. Connecticut controlled play during the span with consecutive shots from Jody Sydor (St. Albert, Alta.), Jennifer Chaisson (Cumberland, Ont.), Horan and Blain, but the Huskies were unable to get anything past UMD's Martin.

Alexandra Garcia (Pointe-Claire, Que.) made 35 saves in net for the Huskies, posting her fourth 30 + save game of the season and now has 161 saves on the year.

UConn returns to the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum next weekend when they host Hockey East opponent Boston College on Saturday (Oct. 30) at 1:00 p.m.
