After figuring in the first five Bulldog goals Sunday afternoon, sophomore forwards Ashleigh Brykaliuk and Katerina Mrázová made the announcer at AMSOIL Arena sound like a broken record.

Guided by Brykaliuk's two goal, two assist performance and Mrázová's four helpers, the No. 10 University of Minnesota Duluth women's hockey team extended its current win streak to five games with a 6-3 triumph over Minnesota State University, Mankato. The win secured the Bulldogs second-consecutive series sweep and puts UMD into a third place tie in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association with the University of North Dakota.

After shelling the Mavericks the day before, the Bulldogs once again jumped on the scoreboard first when Brykaliuk buried her first goal just 3:46 into the action, assisted by Mrázovĺ. After the Mavericks tied it up with just over 10 minutes played, Saturday's hero senior winger Jenna McParland converted a 2-on-1 (Mrázová and Brykaliuk with assists) at the 15:14 mark to give the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

MSU responded with two goals of its own, a power play goal at 15:03 of the second period and go ahead goal by Katie Johnson 3:27 into the third period to give the Mavericks their first lead of the series. That lead was short-lived, however, as both Lara Stalder and Brykaliuk found the twine over a 2:24 time span to pull UMD ahead. Brykaliuk's power play goal at 7:30 of the third period was followed by insurance scores from senior center Brienna Gillanders and another power play tally credited to Zoe Hickel with 49 seconds left in the skate.

In all, nine players picked up points for the Bulldogs, including four with two or more points and Brykaliuk and Mrázovĺ with four each. Kayla Black finished with 16 saves for UMD, while Erin Krichiver made 38 for the Mavericks

The Bulldogs (6-4-2, 3-4-1) will take a week off from outside competition this upcoming weekend before returning to the ice in St. Cloud, Minn. against St. Cloud State University on Nov. 14-15.
