Ohio State's No.1-ranked women's ice hockey team recorded a 3-2 win over No. 4 Minnesota Duluth on Saturday, giving the Buckeyes a two-game sweep of the same squad they beat last March to capture the program's first ever national title. 

After defeating the Bulldogs 3-2 on Friday, the Buckeyes needed two goals in the third period to win by the same margin today. 

With the win, Ohio State stands a perfect 8-0 this season and extended its program-best win streak to 18 games. 

Down 2-1 entering the third period, Jenn Gardiner tied the game at 2-2 with 10:47 to play. 

Riley Brengman then netted the game-winner with less than five minutes left in regulation.

Goalie Amanda Thiele stopped 24 shots in a winning effort. She's now 6-0-0 on the young season. 

The two-game sweep marked the first time since the 2018-19 season the Buckeyes have turned the trick against the Bulldogs. 

The Buckeyes return to the ice next weekend, at home, with a two-game set against No. 2-ranked Minnesota. Friday night's game starts at 6 p.m. with a 3 p.m. matinee on tap Saturday.
