HANCOCK, Mich. (WLUC) - Everything was left on the ice as the Finlandia University women’s hockey team (0-7, 0-3 NCHA) took a hard fought 3-1 loss to St. Norbert (6-2, 3-0 NCHA), Friday night at the Houghton County Arena.

In the first period, freshman Laney Pasemko and Brynn Waisman put on a goalie clinic.  Both players had several great saves to keep the score at 0-0 as the period ended.

In the second period, junior Cassidy Becia blasted a shot that was somehow saved just 44 seconds in.  St. Norbert finally broke the defensive stalemate, scoring at the 11:50 mark.  Freshman Libby Plath put up a shot that just missed before the end of the second period.

In the third period, sophomore Abby Dawson ripped the puck past Waisman to tie the game with 15:31 to go.  The Green Knights took the lead back three minutes later.  SNC would score an insurance goal at the 15:02 mark.  The Lions had several strong chances that were denied.

The defense blocked 15 shots.  Pasemko finished with 20 saves.
