SOUTHFIELD, Mich.--The Adrian College American Collegiate Hockey Association Division I women's team--fifth in the national rankings--scored the game’s only goal on Friday night here at the Civic Center, picking up a road win to sweep the University of Michigan in a two-game series and remain unbeaten with a perfect 6-0 record.
Adrian’s Brittany Levassuer scored the game’s lone goal 6 minutes and 20 seconds into the second period and Adrian goaltender Alison Dungey made it stand up, preserving the win with 12 saves for the shutout.
Jessie Rushing and Taylor Murcek were credited with assists on Levassuer’s game-winner, which capped a huge weekend for the first-year player from Pepperell, Mass., who scored four of the Bulldogs' six goals in the two-game series.
The game saw just four penalties called on the evening, with U of M picking up six penalty-minutes while the Bulldogs had only two. Adrian outshot the No. 9-ranked Wolverines, 21-12, as Bailey Hamill made 20 saves for the Maize and Blue.
Adrian is now 6-0 on the season while Michigan falls to 1-4. The Bulldogs will be home at Arrington Ice Arena next Friday and Saturday when the Penn State Nittany Lions come to town for a 7 p.m. game on Friday and 3 p.m. matinee on Saturday afternoon.
