The Gustavus Adolphus women's hockey team is going for its eighth straight MIAC tournament title and ninth overall. On Thursday night, the Gusties defeated upset-minded Concordia 5-2 in the semifinals at the Don Roberts Ice Rink, setting up a championship game against Bethel at 2 p.m. Saturday in St. Peter.

On Thursday, Concordia grabbed an early 1-0 lead but then started going to the penalty box. The Gusties made the Cobbers pay, scoring on four of their first five power plays to take command of the game.

Freshman Amanda Cartony (pictured) had two goals and an assist, and Allie Schwab finished with three assists. Goalie Danielle Justice weathered an early storm by a tough offensive team and finished with 21 saves.

This just in: The Gusties are pretty good.
