MANKATO, Minn. - Sophomore defenseman Megan Hinze scored two power play goals in the third period and senior goaltender Brianna Quade made 39 saves to propel Minnesota State to a 2-1 come-from-behind upset win over No. 3 Minnesota Duluth on Saturday afternoon at Verizon Wireless Center.

Hinze's (4-0--4) first goal -- scored at 3:47 in the third period -- eliminated a 1-0 deficit to tie the Mavericks (5-13-2, 3-12-1-0 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) and the Bulldogs (13-4-3, 10-4-2-1 WCHA) at 1-1. Hinze's second goal -- the game winner -- came at 14:48 in the third period. Both goals were scored on the power play. Hinze was named the first star of the game.

Quade (3-8-2) did the rest -- making a season-high 39 saves, including 16 in the third period to earn the victory. In the process, she improved her 2016-17 goals against average to 2.68 and her save percentage to .912. Quade earned second star of the game honors.

Sophomore forward Emily Antony (4-6--10), who leads the Mavericks in points and is tied for the team lead in assists with sophomore forward Corbin Boyd (0-6--6), garnered two assists and was named the third star of the game. Boyd tallied one assist on the afternoon.

The Bulldogs, who outshot the Mavericks 40-19 in the game, scored their only goal of the game to take a 1-0 lead at 18:36 in the first period. Neither team scored again until Hinze scored her two power play goals in the third period.

The Mavericks, who entered the game 3-of-50 on the power play this season, converted on 2-of-4 power play opportunities to increase their season conversion rate to over 10 percent. The Mavericks were also 5-of-5 on the penalty kill, which increased their 2016-17 penalty kill percentage to just under 82 percent.

Minnesota State, which is 3-3-0 in its last six WCHA games, picked up its first win over a ranked opponent since a 3-0 win over then-No. 2 ranked Wisconsin in the WCHA First Round on March 1, 2014. The win over Minnesota Duluth is the first over a ranked opponent under second-year head coach John Harrington.

Maddie Rooney (13-4-3) made 17 saves in goal for the Bulldogs.

Ashleigh Brykaliuk (12-12--24) and Catherine Daoust (1-3--4) each garnered one assist for Minnesota Duluth.

The Mavericks step away from WCHA play for a nonconference series at Union in Schenectady, N.Y., next weekend.
