Hamline also added a pair of even-strength goals to the two goals
from special teams play. The Pipers also took advantage of rebounds,
scoring three of their goals by picking up loose pucks in front of the
net after a shot.
Jessica Kraus (Jr., Inver Grove Heights, Minn.) scored the Pipers'
opening goal at 5:24 on a power play. Miller and Megan Olson (Sr., Coon
Rapids, Minn.) had the assists.
Miller then scored a short-handed goal as an aggressive Piper penalty
kill unit attacked the net. Jestina Koenigsmark (Jr., Oakdale, Minn.)
took a shot from the point and Miller, set up just outside the
crease, picked up the rebound and flicked it in for the goal at 19:11.
Haley Johnson (So., Bemidji, Minn.) had the second assist.
The Pipers once again used a rebound off of a shot to score a goal as
the lone score in the second period came with seven seconds to play.
Brianna Sigg (Jr., Coon Rapids, Minn.) took a shot and Laura Randall
(So., Fridley, Minn.) was there to collect, and shoot, the loose
puck for a goal at 19:53. Kaitlin Denton (Jr., Tracy, Calif.) had the
second assist on that tally.
Less than a minute into the final period of regulation, Augsburg's
Sandra Hinz (So., Stockholm, Sweden) scored at 48 seconds. Erin Leyden
(Sr., Glen Ellyn, Ill.) had the assist.
The Pipers went ahead by three once again at 7:35 as Billye Nelson
(Jr., Warroad, Minn.) took a shot and Johnson used the rebound to score
Augsburg's second goal came at 15:54 as Kressi Lehn (Sr., Rogers,
Minn.) tipped in a shot taken by Allix Bell (So., Andover, Minn.).
Jessica Larkin (So., Lakeville, Minn.) had the second assist.
The Pipers out-shot the Auggies 37-13 in the game.
