EDINA, Minn. - Kelly Pannek (two goals, two assists) and Kate Schipper (one goal, two assists) led No. 2 Minnesota to a 5-3 win over Minnesota State in the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum Women's Faceoff Classic at Braemar Arena in Edina, Minn., Sunday afternoon.

Minnesota (16-3-2, 12-2-2-2 WCHA) led 1-0 after the first period and scored three second-period goals to take a 4-1 lead after two. The Mavericks came within one with two tallies in the third, but the Gophers added an empty-net goal with 15 seconds remaining to seal the win. Sidney Peters made 16 saves as the Gophers outshot the Mavericks, 37-19.

Minnesota State (6-15-2, 3-12-1-0 WCHA) received goals from Corbin Boyd (two goals) and Hannah Davidson along with 32 saves from goaltender Brianna Quade.

Schipper put Minnesota on the board first with her seventh goal of the season at the 15:52 mark of the first period.

The Gophers extended their lead to three at 4-1 during the second period. MSU tied the game at 1-1 with Boyd's first goal of the game midway through the period, but the Gophers rattled off three consecutive goals. Pannek scored her first of the game, netting a power play goal off a feed from Lee Stecklein and Megan Wolfe at the 13:38 mark before Katie Robinson scored her first goal as a Gopher 51 seconds later. Pannek then added her second of the game at 18:18 of the middle frame.

Minnesota State came within one goal in the third period, but the Gophers held on for the win. Davidson scored at 2:45 before Boyd scored on a breakaway with 57 seconds remaining to make it 4-3. The Mavericks called a time out and pulled Quade for the extra attacker, but Wolfe connected on the empty-net goal to seal the 5-3 win with 15 seconds remaining.

The game goes down as a non-conference win for the Gophers over their WCHA foes; the statistics count in NCAA rankings, but the result does not affect the WCHA standings. Minnesota resumes conference play on the road at Minnesota Duluth next weekend.
