Gusties make D3 women's Frozen Four

The Gustavus Adolphus women's hockey team upset No. 3-ranked Wisconsin River Falls on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA tournament to advance to the Frozen Four.

Katilyn Kline's power-play goal with 3:53 remaining in the third period broke a tie game and led to the Gusties' 3-2 win. It was Gustavus' second goal of the period. River Falls, which had beaten the Gusties twice in December, had taken a 2-1 lead early in the third.

The Falcons outshot the Gusties 40-20, but goaltender Amanda DiNella, made a career-high 38 saves.

Allie Lewis and Kristen Cash had the other goals for Gustavus, which was playing in its first NCAA tournament since 2013.

Gustavus (18-6-3) will face Adrian (27-2-0) on Friday at Adrian, Mich. Plattsburgh State (26-1-1) and Norwich (23-5-1) will play in the earlier semifinal.
