The Forester women's hockey team dropped its final non-conference game of the regular season, a 7-1 loss at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point on Sunday. Junior forward Marissa Weber scored to give the visitors a 1-0 lead early in the second period but the sixth-ranked team in the nation netted seven goals in the game's final 26 minutes.
Stevens Point tied the game at 14:05, scored what turned out to be the game-winner just 36 seconds later, and added a third goal with 2:11 on the clock.
The home team added four goals in the first 11 minutes of the third period, including a power play score.
The Pointers outshot the Foresters 25-11 through two periods and Lake Forest had a 7-6 edge in shots on goal in the third.
The loss drops the Foresters' record on the season to 12-5-3 while Stevens Point raised its mark to 16-4-2.
Lake Forest will play its final home game of the regular season against Adrian College next Saturday at 7:00 p.m.
