Minnesota wins second straight Frozen Four, ends BC’s perfect season
The Minnesota women’s ice hockey team won its second consecutive Frozen Four with a 3–1 win over Boston College on Sunday to win the national title.
The Gophers’ victory put an end to Boston College’s perfect 40–0–0 season.
Freshman forward Sarah Potomak scored the first goal for the Gophers just 13 seconds into the game. Senior forward Amanda Kessel scored the game-winner, and sophomore Kelly Pannek added another score in the third period.
Makenna Newkirk answered with a late goal for the Eagles, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Minnesota from taking home its fourth trophy in five years.
The championship was the seventh NCAA title in Minnesota women’s hockey history.
