No. 5-ranked UW-River Falls raced to an early 4-0 lead en route to Tuesday night's 6-2 defeat of No. 9-ranked St. Thomas in non-conference women's hockey in River Falls, Wis.

Allison Parnell and Allison Borgstrom scored second-period goals to pull the Toms within 4-2. But the Falcons (4-1-1) scored twice in the game's final 8:00 to ice the victory.

The Tommies (5-2) are home Friday night to face St. Catherine, a 7:30 p.m. start.
