Minnesota freshman Patti Marshall scored a goal and goaltender Sidney Peters made 25 saves to down Minnesota Duluth 1-0 in an NCAA Division I quarterfinal this afternoon before 1,549 at Amsoil Arena.

The game was a rematch of last weekend’s WCHA Final Face-Off in Minneapolis, won 2-1 by UMD in double overtime. The goalies were again sharp in this one, with the Bulldogs’ Maddie Rooney stopping 28 shots.

UMD (25-7-5) had its share of chances, including at least three shots off the crossbar, but couldn’t solve Peters.

Minnesota (26-7-5) advances to take on Clarkson on Friday in the Frozen Four at Family Arena in St. Charles, Mo.

Jon Nowacki joined the News Tribune in August 1998 as a sports reporter. He grew up in Stephen, Minnesota, in the northwest corner of the state, where he was actively involved in school and sports and was a proud member of the Tigers’ 1992 state championship nine-man football team.

After graduating in 1993, Nowacki majored in print journalism at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, serving as editor of the college paper, “The Aquin,” and graduating with honors in December 1997. He worked with the Associated Press during the “tobacco trial” of 1998, leading to the industry’s historic $206 billion settlement, before moving to Duluth.

Nowacki started as a prep reporter for the News Tribune before moving onto the college ranks, with an emphasis on Minnesota Duluth football, including coverage of the Bulldogs’ NCAA Division II championships in 2008 and 2010.

Nowacki continues to focus on college sports while filling in as a backup on preps, especially at tournament time. He covers the Duluth Huskies baseball team and auto racing in the summer. When time allows, he also writes an offbeat and lighthearted food column entitled “The Taco Stand,” a reference to the “Taco Jon” nickname given to him by his older brother when he was a teenager that stuck with him through college. He has a teenage daughter, Emma.
