Ohio State Women's Hockey Stuns No. 1 Minnesota in a Shootout

If you follow women's college hockey at all, you know the Minnesota Golden Gophers are the Harlem Globetrotters of the realm. The Gophers are the three-time defending national champions, having won their most recent title to cap a perfect 41-0 season.

So it's big news when Gophers go down. And even bigger news when they go down at the hands of Ohio State.

Senior Ally Tarr scorred the game-tying goal with 1:41 remaining at Minneapolis' Ridder Arena Saturday night before sophomore Kendall Curtis scored the only goal of the shootout session for the extra league point.

Goalie Lisa Steffes stood on her head, stopping 28 shots, including all nine attempts in the shootout.

The tie marks just the second time in Minnesota’s last 71 games that they have failed to win.

Following the win, the ladies went out for oatmeal in a cup. Or something.

Here's to you, ladies.

There are only two things I know about college women's ice hockey... 1. The Bucks have a team. 2. Minnesota is really good.
Congrats to the women's team on a huge win against the best team in the nation.

I hate to be "that guy", but, not only can the girls play hockey; they're freaking "hot". Congrats on a big victory, ladies.

The ladies uniforms look a lot better than that striped up mess the men wear.

I was watching the game with my daughter who plays hockey. I told her there was no way we would beat Minnesota.  She replied any team can get beaten on any given day. Yes she is smarter than me. Great win Lady Bucks!

Awesome win! Congrats ladies.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
