The Ohio State women’s hockey team completed a two-game sweep of the Gophers on Saturday afternoon in Columbus, Ohio, winning 6-5 in a matchup featuring two of the top teams in the country.

Minnesota lost Friday’s series opener at Ohio State 4-3 in overtime.

Ohio State improved to 7-1 overall and 6-0 in the WCHA. Minnesota fell to 5-2 and 3-2.

Minnesota got two goals from Nelli Laitinen, and one each from Ella Huber, Josefin Bouveng and Peyton Hemp.

Gophers goaltender Skylar Vetter, a junior, stopped 46 Buckeyes shots on Saturday, her second straight games with 45 or more saves.

“Certainly frustrated with the result here tonight, but at the same time very encouraged here early in the year,” Gophers coach Brad Frost said. “We were down late, but generated some grade-A chances in the last 30 seconds to tie it up. We certainly have some things we can learn from and get better at, and we will do that. But again, I love the fight of this team.”
