MEQUON, Wis. - Locked in a tight race for a spot in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association playoffs, the Concordia University Wisconsin women's hockey team will host conference rival University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire for two games this weekend at the Ozaukee Ice Center.
The Falcons and Blugolds will drop the puck at 7 p.m. on Friday night, before meeting again at 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. Friday's game will feature Live Video/Play-by-Play, while Saturday's match-up will include Live Stats.
CUW (7-8-1, 5-6-0 NCHA) is coming off a couple of losses at the hands of UW-Superior last weekend, and will be looking to bounce back quickly with only nine games remaining on its regular season schedule.
Eau Claire (5-11-3, 4-8-2 NCHA) went 0-1-1 in two games against UW-River Falls a week ago, but are 3-2-1 in the month of January so far.
The Blugolds' leading scorer is sophomore forward Nikki Kothenbeutel, who has scored five goals to go with seven assists.
