Goaltender Maddie Bowe stopped all 12 Holy Angels shots to pick up her second shutout. She got all the support she would need when Grace Gavin scored her team-leading fifth goal of the season in the second period. Haleigh Zwart and Megan Stivers provided assists.

Later in the period, Michaela Tonsager scored on an assist from Haley Doll to make it 2-0. The goal gave the Tigers their first two-goal game since Dec. 7 against Chaska/Chanhassen.

The Tigers (2-12-1) hit the road to take on Chaska/Chanhassen tonight at 7 o'clock in Chaska. They return home Saturday to face third-ranked (Class 1A) Blake.
