DULUTH — Five players scored as Wisconsin-River Falls rolled to a 5-1 nonconference women’s hockey victory over St. Scholastica Tuesday night before 133 fans at Mars Lakeview Arena.

Bailey Olson got things started with an unassisted goal six minutes into the contest before CSS scored the equalizer four minutes later as Kayla Kasel buried a feed from Mariah Haedrich.

The tie didn’t last long as Megan Goodreau scored on the power play at 13:14 in the first period and then Maddie McCollins scored just nine seconds later to put the Falcons firmly in control.

Challis Prohaska and Alex Hantge added insurance goals late in the third period, with Abigail Stow and Aubrey Nelvin assisting on both, and Sam Miller had 27 saves for River Falls (4-1).

Ashlea Arvidson had 33 saves for the Saints (0-4-1), who return to MIAC action at 7 p.m. Friday against St. Benedict at Mars Lakeview Arena.
