Fresh off a 2-0 non-conference win over St. Catherine, Hamline's women's hockey team head into league play this weekend with a series against St. Mary's.
The teams will play at Ridder Arena on the U of Minnesota campus Friday night and repair to Winona Saturday at 2:00 p.m. for a rematch.
Please note that there is no admission charge for the game at Ridder. Also note that parking may be a bit of a premium because there is a U of Minnesota men's basketball game going on down the street at Williams Arena.
Hamline takes a 1-2 mark into the weekend. Sarah Schneekloth turned away 47 shots for her first college shutout last Saturday in the win over the Wildcats. The win snapped an eight-game losing skid vs. SCU. The Cardinals stand 1-1 on the season.
Last year, the teams were in a very defensive frame of mind when they faced each other. HU lost the first night in Winona, 1-0. The next night, Ashley Maskel's second period goal lifted the Pipers to a 1-1 OT tie.
