NORTHFIELD, Minn. - Carolyn Draayer scored at 8:19 of the third period to lift No. 5 Gustavus past St. Olaf, 2-0, in a MIAC women's hockey game on Saturday night at Northfield Ice Arena.

Melissa Doyle scored just over three minutes later, at 12:01, to add insurance.

The Gustie win offset a 45-save night from the Oles' Cassie Alexander. St. Olaf (2-8-0, 2-4-0), managed only 16 shots on net, but had a 2-on-1 opportunity early in the third. A St. Olaf rebound found the net, but after the net came loose.

St. Olaf will be off for almost a month, with the next series on Jan. 3-4 at UW-Eau Claire. St. Olaf returns to MIAC play on Jan. 17-18 with a home-and-home series with Hamline University.
