Foresters Finish Off Sweep of St. Norbert

Junior goaltender Jacqueline Audet recorded her second straight shutout on Saturday in the Lake Forest College women's hockey team's 2-0 victory at St. Norbert College.

Audet's 39 saves on the evening are the most in a shutout in program history. She stopped 13 shots on goal in the opening period, 18 in the second, and eight in the third and improved to 8-1-1 on the season with a 1.98 goals against average and .913 save percentage.

The first goal of the game was scored by junior forward Olivia Spellmire at the 15:17 mark of the opening period. Spellmire's 13th score this year was assisted by fellow junior forwards Amanda Brunges and Kayla Griffith.

Brunges made the score 2-0 just 50 seconds into the second period on her sixth goal this season Spellmire and freshman defenseman Kate Fanning set up the score. 

The teams combined to kill every penalty in the contest with the Foresters going 0-for-6 on the power play and the Green Knights 0-for-5.

Lake Forest, the sixth-ranked team in the nation, extended its program record unbeaten streak to 14 games and is now 18-2-1 overall and 12-1-1 in Northern Collegiate Hockey Association play this year. St. Norbert fell to 4-16-1 overall and 2-11-1 in league play.

The Foresters will return to Wisconsin next weekend to face Marian University. Saturday night's contest will begin at 6:00 and Sunday's at 2:00 p.m.
