Freshman Courtney Umland scored the go-ahead and insurance goals to lead the Tommie women’s hockey team to Sunday’s 5-2 MIAC win over St. Olaf and a sweep of their weekend series.
Christina Rozeske scored a short-handed goal for the Tommies (8-5-1 overall, 7-3 MIAC), who have won five consecutive MIAC games. They moved alone into second place with eight games left.
Umland scored with eight seconds left in the second period to break a 2-2 tie. She scored another on the power play 4:12 into the third. UST added an empty-net goal.
