Head coach Bob Motzko praised senior Jordy Christian this past week for his hard work and leadership. Christian rewarded his coach’s kind words Saturday night in Colorado Springs when he scored 2:30 into overtime to give St. Cloud State a 5-4 win over Colorado College to help earn SCSU a split with the #8 Tigers.
Christian’s goal came after St. Cloud had blown a two-goal lead late in the third period. The Huskies held a 4-2 lead after a David Eddy goal, but allowed CC to strike twice in the game’s final minutes to force OT. Christian was the savor for the Huskies however, scoring his second goal of the season from Brooks Bertsch and Sam Zabkowicz to give SCSU the win, and keep them one point behind sixth ranked UND in WCHA in the race for home ice advantage. Garrett Milan notched his first NCAA goal, and Jared Festler and Nic Dowd also scored for SCSU in the win.
CC took game one Friday by a score of 3-1. The Huskies lone goal came from Nick Jensen in the second period. St. Cloud had a controversial goal disallowed that would have tied the game 2-2 in the second period off the tape of Kevin Gravel, but it was ruled Eddy’s stick had hit CC goaltender Josh Thorimbert’s mask and caused interference.
With the weekend split, the Huskies now sit at 9-11-4 overall and 6-7-3 in the WCHA. SCSU is in seventh place with 15 points in the conference.

Brittany Toor's goal with only 5:40 to play in the third period lifted the St. Cloud State Women's Hockey team to an upset win over the Ohio State Buckeyes, 4-3 Saturday afternoon at the National Hockey Center.
With the game tied at three and the clock winding down, Toor accepted a pass from Abby Ness and dashed into the Ohio State zone before sliding a backhander low along the ice under the pad of goaltender Chelsea Knapp to give the Huskies the lead. It was Toor's third career game winning goal, and career best 11th point of the season.
"Abby just gave me a pass, I walked it around and just threw it on the net and actually, I was really surprised that it went in," Toor said.
After dropping game one of the series 2-0 Friday, the Huskies came out flying on Saturday charting three goals in the first period and chasing starting goaltender Lisa Steffes from the game. Senior Jaclyn Daggit, playing at forward with team captain Jocelyn Zabrick out with a hip injury, opened the scoring with her first goal of the season. Molli Mott added her team leading seventh goal on a play setup by Toor, and Alex Nelson's individual play resulted in a goal and 3-0 lead.

With her third goal of the weekend, Spooner set the Ohio State record for goals with her 87th career tally.
