MINNEAPOLIS – The No. 2 Gopher women’s hockey team roared out of the gates to start the 2022-23 season with a win by blowing out the Beavers 6-0 on Friday night at Ridder Arena.
 
Minnesota (1-0-0) opened the scoring at the 4:40 mark of the first period with a goal by fifth-year forward Abigail Boreen and never looked back. Boreen scored again to open the second period as one of three Gophers to record a pair of goals as sophomore forwards Peyton Hemp and Abbey Murphy each tallied two later in the contest. The Gophers outshot the Beavers (2-2-1) 46-17 in Friday’s matchup.

Senior goaltender Makayla Pahl stopped all 17 shots to record her second career shutout. Bemidji State’s Hannah Hogenson stopped 40 of 46 shots in the defeat.

Quotable

“A great first win of the year,” said head coach Brad Frost. “Our first period was what you would expect from our first real game of the year. It was a feeling out process, but Abby [Boreen] got a big goal right away in the second to jump-start us into a great second period. I’m really happy with the way we played. We created a ton of chances, were very disciplined, played well defensively and finished off a complete win. We’re excited about that and are looking forward to the opportunity to get back at it tomorrow.

Notable

• Minnesota moves to 23-3 all-time in season-opening games

• Senior defender Madeline Wethington recorded a career-high three assists

• Senior goaltender Makayla Pahl is now undefeated in her last 10 starts.
