Duluth, Minn. - The St. Scholastica women's hockey team has advanced the NCHA Semifinals after sweeping Lake Forest on the road last weekend to complete their first ever postseason series win.

It is just the third year of existence for the program and coincidentally, this will be the third time this season that the Saints will skate with St. Norbert. they split a pair in Green Bay back in November.

"We just really have to put three solid periods together and score some goals and get some big goaltending from our goalie and we really do feel confident going into the game, just being matched up with them and we are excited to play them," says Head Coach Jackie MacMillan.

"We are feeling good about how we are playing and feel like we have the advantage and doing what it takes to get there is everything for us and I think we have that and we are excited to get going," says Forward Michelle Fischer.

St. Scholastica and St. Norbert face off on Friday at 3:05 pm in River Falls, Wisconsin.
