Pointers take game one of NCHA Quarterfinal seriesSubmitted: 02/24/2012
Story By UWSP Athletics

ADRIAN, MN - The Pointers used a pair of third-period goals from Erin Marvin, combined with 44 saves from Janna Beilke Skoug, to take game one of their (NCHA) Quarterfinal series against Adrian College.

Michelle Lunneborg gave the Pointers a 1-0 lead with just seconds remaining in the first period, lighting the lamp with her eighth goal of the season off an Allie Tanzer assist.

A scoreless second period gave way to the third where with just over five minutes remaining Marvin's 13th and 14th goals of the season gave the Pointers some cushion, as the team held on for the shutout victory.


Adrian out-shot the Pointers 44-16 on the evening, but Beilke-Skoug stopped all 44 shots on net to earn the victory, just the second shutout of the season against Adrian.

"We played solid team defense," said UW-Stevens Point head coach Ann Ninnemann. "We allowed Janna to stop the first shot, which she did, and we cleaned up any rebounds and picked up sticks in front of the net."

UWSP (13-11-2) and Adrian (14-9-2) take to the ice at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday in the decisive game two of the quarterfinal series. The sixth-seeded Pointers need a tie or victory to upset the third-seeded Bulldogs of Adrian College.

PARK FALLS - Northern Wisconsin struggles keeping its young people. That leads to fewer young families and shrinking communities in the area, but rural communities are trying to reverse that trend.

Park Falls Area Community Development Corporation Administrator Frank Kempf says Price County wants to help young people find good work in their area, but the problem is finding the jobs that young people are going after.

"The young people who are leaving to go to work, and we just don't have the jobs to bring them back to stay here and live here with the jobs that they want," Kempf said.
