The Oles added a Katie Iraci goal in the third period to take a 3-1 lead. Concordia came within one on Abby Taffe's second score of the game with 7:16 left, but St. Olaf held on behind Ptachick's performance.
St. Olaf took a 2-0 lead on goals from Margot Fleming and Nicole Stumpf at 8:10 and 8:42 of the first period.
The teams meet tomorrow at 2 p.m. in the final game of the series.
