Senior goalie Paige Kittelson stopped all 17 shots and recorded her third career shutout and Rachel Werdin and Allison Parnell scored 2:26 apart in the second frame to lead No. 8-ranked Tommie Women's Hockey to a 2-0 victory over host Bethel in Friday night's MIAC clash in Blaine.

The teams play again Saturday in Mendota Heights at 2 p.m.

Parnell finished with a goal and an assist. Kittelson and her teammates helped kill off all three Bethel power plays.

The Toms (10-3-3 overall, 6-1-2 MIAC) are unbeaten in their last seven MIAC contests (5-0-2) with a 15-6 scoring advantage in that span.

They remain in second place near the halfway point of the 18-game conference race, one point behind Hamline and two ahead of Gustavus.
