College women's hockey: Saints reach NCHA final
Goaltender Lexi Thomeczek continued her stellar play in the second half of the season by saving all 37 shots she faced in St. Scholastica's 3-0 victory over Lake Forest College in an NCHA Slaats Cup semifinal Friday night in Adrian, Mich.
The Saints (21-6-1), winners of 11 straight, will face regular-season champion Adrian for the conference title and a berth in the NCAA Division III field Sunday afternoon.
Amber Tilander of International Falls opened the scoring with her 10th goal of the season at 17:07 of the first period.
Rachel Anderson tacked on her 13th at 13:07 of the second period and Duluthian Alexia Klaas netted her 15th at 6:38 of the third to secure the win.
Thomeczek posted her fourth shutout in the past eight games. She's allowed only five goals during that span.
Jacque Rogers made 25 saves for the Foresters (16-7-5).
