Eryn Lansverk of the Falcons scored three goals in the first half, providing all of the scoring UW-River Falls would need in the game.
Skoviak scored her first collegiate goal at 70:15 to prevent the shutout. The goal, assisted by senior Haley Leverington (Saint Paul, Minn.), was the only scoring that would take place in the second half.
The Pipers drop to 1-3-0 overall with the non-conference loss. The Falcons improve to 2-1-1 with the win. Hamline will host UM-Morris on Saturday, September 12, at 1:00 p.m. at Pat Paterson Field.
