ST. PETER, Minn. - The No. 21-ranked Tommie women topped the Gusties 2-0, Saturday in St. Peter. Brielle Bierman and Mallory DeBoom scored in the 40th and 78th minutes. Freshman Katie Lynn stayed unbeaten in goal with another shutout as she collected five saves.
With the win, the Tommies improve to 6-1-1 overall and 3-1-0 in the MIAC, while the Gusties drop to 5-2-1 overall and 2-1-0 in league play.
The Tommies came out on top in shots (11-7) and shots on goal (7-5), while Gustavus finished with a 3-2 advantage in corner kicks.
Bierman scored the eventual game-winning goal in the 40th minute for her second of the season. DeBoom followed midway through the second half to score her sixth of the year. She has now scored a goal in five of the last six games, and tallied at least a point in six of the last seven.
