RIVER FALLS, Wis. - Freshman Katie Tong couldn't have picked a better time to score her first goal of the season as the Adrian Bulldogs beat Wis.-Superior, 1-0 in the semi-final round of the NCHA Tournament. The Tong goal, assisted by Courtney Millar and Sarah Connelly, came at the 16:40 mark of the second period and was the deciding factor in the game.
Wis.-Superior had their chances in the game, outshooting Adrian 28-20. The Bulldogs let nothing in the net as sophomore Emily Michelin got the start and stopped all 28 shots. Michelin improved to 5-5-1 on the season with the win.
The Bulldogs are now 16-9-2 on the season, and winners of 11 of their last 12. They will look to keep the hot streak alive as they will play in the NCHA Tournament final tomorrow with the winner advancing to the NCAA Tournament. Adrian will play the winner of the 4 seed, Lake Forest (17-8-3) and the 1 seed, UW-River Falls (21-4-2). The puck will drop at 4:05 pm in tomorrow in the championship game from River Falls, Wisconsin.
