St. Scholastica scored three power play goals and one shorthanded to dump St. Olaf 7-4 on Friday night in Northfield, Minnesota, continuing its unbeaten run through the first seven games of the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference men's hockey schedule.

The win puts the Saints (9-5-2, 6-0-1 MIAC) just short of the top of the league standings. They trail St. John's by a point, having played two fewer games.

Nathan Adrian and Carsen Richels scored on back-to-back power plays to put CSS up 2-1, then Arkhip Ledenkov made it 3-1 just 20 seconds later. Filimon Ledenkov opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal for 4-1 at 1:12 of the second frame, though the Oles scored two power play goals of their own in the period to close within one.

After the teams went to the third period with CSS up 5-4, Adrian and Nathan Driver helped the Saints pull away.

Jack Bostedt made 27 saves for CSS. The teams meet again on Saturday at Mars Lakeview Arena in Duluth.



Second-period slip-up costs Saints

Hanley Block's goal for the Saints with 6:55 left in the first period made it 1-1 at the first intermission, but Annika Patterson and Iona Welsch's efforts made it 3-1 Oles after two periods.

Abby Pohlkamp tried to get a late comeback going with her goal with 2:08 to play, but St. Olaf scored on an empty net in the closing seconds.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
