Women’s hockey: No. 2 Gophers beat top-ranked Ohio State, 4-2

Taylor Heise tied the score with an unassisted goal, and Peyton Hemp scored the winner as No. 2 Minnesota scored twice in the third period to rally past top-ranked Ohio State 4-2 on Friday in Columbus, Ohio.

Abigail Boreen added a goal with 3:31 remaining as the Gophers remained undefeated (7-0-0) and passed their first big test of the young season.

Nelli Laitinen gave the Gophers a 1-0 lead in the first period, scoring an even-strength goal on assists by Grace Zumwinkle and Abbey Murphy. All three of those players competed in the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing last February.

Sophomore goaltender Skylar Vetter made 41 stops for the Gophers.

Ohio State (8-1-0) took a 2-1 lead on a pair of second-period goals, the first on a power play by Jenna Buglioni, the second by defender Sophie Jaques, a finalist for the 2022 Patty Kazmaier Award won by Heise last spring.

The teams play again on Saturday. Puck drop is set for 2 p.m. CT.
