Gophers Reach Women's Frozen Four

March 12, 2017 03:15 AM

The No. 5 University of Minnesota women's hockey team used a goal by Patti Marshall and a shutout from Sidney Peters to secure a 1-0 win over No. 3 Minnesota Duluth and punch its ticket to the program's sixth-straight NCAA Women's Frozen Four.

The Gophers (26-7-5) broke a scoreless tie at the 7:54 mark of the third period when Marshall scored off a feed from Sarah Potomak and Kelly Pannek. Peters finished with 25 saves in her eighth shutout of the season in the NCAA quarterfinal at AMSOIL Arena Saturday afternoon.

"Well, what a great game. Both teams just left it all out there," head coach Brad Frost said. "We're ecstatic to be going to our sixth Frozen Four in a row. This is a huge thing for our program. We've gone through a lot this year with injuries and some different things. I'm just so proud of our team and the way that they've battled through that adversity and come out stronger on the other side. I don't think anyone wants to see us in the Frozen Four other than our program, and we relish that."

Minnesota will face No. 2 seed Clarkson in the Frozen Four semifinal next weekend in St. Charles, Mo., in a rematch of the 2014 NCAA Championship game. The other semifinal pits top-seeded Wisconsin against No. 4 seed Boston College.
