Minnesota State roundup

MANKATO — Senior Lauren Smith tied a school record by extending her goal-scoring streak to five games as Minnesota State skated to a 2-2 overtime tie against St. Cloud State in WCHA women’s hockey action at All Seasons Arena Friday.

The Huskies won the shootout 1-0.

Smith, who has five goals and two assists in her five-game scoring streak, is tied with Michelle Sikich (1999) for the program record.

The Mavericks’ Tracy McCann scored at 1:11 of the first period, with an assist from Smith.

St. Cloud State took the lead early in the third period, but Minnesota State answered at 10:59 when Smith twirled a backhand shot between the pads to tie the game at 2.

The Mavericks were outshot 39-25. Danielle Butters finished with 37 saves.

Minnesota State (10-17-4, 6-15-4 in WCHA) hosts St. Cloud State again today at 3:07 p.m.

Softball: The Mavericks split their first two games of the season Friday at the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Leadoff Classic in Tucson, Ariz.

In Game 2, freshman Coley Ries made her first collegiate start and picked up the win in a 5-2 victory over Missouri-St. Louis. Ries, a Mankato East graduate, allowed one run in five hits, walked four and fanned six.

MSU trailed 1-0 before Abby Sonner’s RBI single tied the game. The game went into extras before the Mavericks scored four in the eighth to win it.
