Olivia Sekany was solid as ever in goal, with three saves on the night. She also earned the shutout, her third of the season.

 

Sekany was rarely challenged in a significant way, thanks to the Husky defensive effort that didn’t allow the Golden Bears many quality opportunities. The back line of Tasia Kravitz, Cowart, Peyton McGee and Reischling were excellent all night, thwarting any attack Cal might have had.

 

Yates was the shot leader on the night for UW with three and Kala McDaniel who earned a start, also had two shots. McDaniel nearly had the second goal for Washington as her shot later in the first half rattled off the top of the crossbar on a shot from distance.
