Below is a recap of our playoff Semi final game against St. Thomas. It was such an exciting game where both of us battled hard but needed to take it to a shootout to decide who got to move on to the championship. We came out on fire in the first half and Abby Mullenbach was gritty in the box and was able to get on the end of a cross to put us ahead from the start. From then on, St. Thomas was able to put one in the back of the net which proved to be the final goal in regulation and onto PK's we went. Ashley Becker came up with the saves of the century off of their second and third shots to allow our shooters to do what they do best and finish the game. All four of our shooters buried their shots and sealed off the Gustie upset to take us to the ship!

Below is our recap of our quarter final playoff game against St. Olaf. We knew going into this game that it was going to be a hard fought battle against the number three seed. Despite beating St. Olaf 3-0 in the beginning of the season we knew we were going to have to battle and that is exactly what we did. In the dwindling seconds of the first half Ashley Becker came up with what proved to be the game changer for us. Coming up with a huge, tremendous, extraordinary, and amazing save off a St. Olaf penalty kick, we escaped notched at zeros after the second half. From there on we knew that we were in this game and that we were ready to put the ball in the back of the net. We came up with not one, but two early goals in the second half to put us ahead and played solid defensively to earn a Gustie upset in the first round of the MIAC playoffs.

We were able to honor our five fantastic seniors in the beginning of the game and thank them for the amazing four years and tremendous impact they have left on our program. We are excited to be able to compete in the MIAC playoffs and we are ready to bounce back and focus on what got us to the playoffs in the first place!

Below is a recap of our game against Hamline. We decided to keep things interesting until the waning seconds of double overtime and score in the last 28 seconds of the match! With a great combination play off of a throw in, Sophie Leininger was able to put a cross in for Chase Miller to blast it right over the keepers head for a Gustie win! It was an exhilarating moment that also proved to be the win we needed to clinch playoffs for the third consecutive year! Lets goo!!!
