Jimmies women's hockey loses 2-1 at Minot State

Feb. 7—MINOT, N.D. — The University of Jamestown women's hockey team gave up two goals in the third period to lose 2-1 to Minot State on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at the Beavers' Maysa Arena.

The Jimmies had a chance with exactly two minutes to go in the first period when Jaeda Clayton took a shot and a teammate hit the puck off the top of the net behind the Beavers' Morgan Baker and into the crease, but the puck was cleared off the line keeping the game scoreless. It didn't take long for the Beavers to have a chance to take the lead when Mia McKee chipped the puck out of the zone moments later and got in on a breakaway where she was hooked by the Jimmies' Rylee Gee. The referee immediately raised his arm for a penalty shot with 1:45 to go in the first. The Beavers' junior got in on goal and couldn't tuck a backhand past Jimmies goalie Makenzie Gibson, who stuck with McKee the entire way.

It is the first penalty shot given up by the Jimmies in program history.

The Jimmies (13-12, 5-11) would break the deadlock at the 15:06 mark of the second period to take a 1-0 lead. The score would stay that way until the 9:16 mark of the third when the Beavers' Paige Ackerman scored to knot the game up at one. At the 14:36 mark of the frame, the Jimmies' Samantha Beaulac got called for a trip and the Beavers' (16-10, 11-7) power play would only last 11 seconds as Krissy Rink scored her eight of the season to push her team in front 2-1.

The Jimmies are back in action at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, when they host Midland University.
