Falcon women skaters open season with 3-2 OT loss

Ozaukee Ice Center

The 2010-11 season opened with a tough overtime loss for the CUW women who fell to visiting Bethel 3-2 this afternoon at the Ozaukee Ice Center.

Bethel's Alison Papko registered the first goal of the season against Concordia during the first twenty minutes but CUW's Samantha Meuwissen answered to create a 1-1 tie at the end of two periods.

All looked rosey when April Forar lit the lamp for the Falcons at 13:59 of the third, but the visitor's Bizz Huss tied things up before the end of regulation and then Papko's second goal ended the contest in overtime.

Lea Jondal recorded 29 saves for Jim Ingman's team, but was victimized by a power play score in the extra session after the Falcons were penalized for too many players on the ice.
