MSU women's player honored

Corbin Boyd
The Minnesota State women's hockey team got off to a good start under new coach John Harrington, tying and defeating Union in a season-opening nonconference series in Mankato.

The Mavericks settled for a 2-2 tie on Friday, getting a late game-tying goal from freshman Corbin Boyd with 1:48 remaining in regulation. MSU outshot Union 46-19.

The next game, MSU goaltender Brianna Quade stopped 19 shots in a 3-0 victory for her first collegiate shutout. The Mavericks had 24 shots in that game.

Other goal scorers for MSU during the weekend included Katie Johnson, Anna Keys, Amanda Conway and Anna Fiegert. Johnson had a three-point weekend with a goal and two assists, as did Hannah Davidson, who had three assists.

Boyd, a Minnetonka native who played at Hopkins High, had an assist in the second game and was named the WCHA's Rookie of the Week for her two-point, five-shot, plus-2 weekend.

The Mavericks will hit the road this week, going to RIT to perhaps try to avenge the MSU men's NCAA tournament loss to the Tigers. The non conference series will take place at 6 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday.
