Gophers top Colgate in season opener for 50th straight win


Unstoppable. That's exactly what the two-time defending National Champion Gophers women's hockey team is.

The Champs won at Colgate, 3-1 Friday night for their 50th consecutive win. The streak started in February of 2012.

Minnesota's last loss came against North Dakota on February 17, 2012.

Rachael Bona scored twice and added an assist for a three-point night. Hannah Brandt also scored a goal. The Gophers outshot Colgate, 35-22.

The two-game trip to Colgate wraps up Saturday afternoon. The puck drops at 2:00 p.m.

Minnesota returns home next weekend for a rivalry matchup with the Wisconsin Badgers.
