With only two regular season games left for the UW-Eau Claire women’s hockey team, the Blugolds traveled to UW-River Falls Saturday afternoon in the hope of achieving their first WIAC win. However, that hope didn’t come true as River Falls defeated Eau Claire 5-1.

 River Falls (16-4-3, 7-2-2) got onto the scoreboard first on a power play with 10:08 into the first period from Katie Batters. They would go on to score again to lead Eau Claire 2-0 at the end of the first period.

 The Blugolds’ (4-18-2, 0-10-1) only goal of the night came in the third period at 13:22 by senior defenseman Emily Larson with an assist by senior forward Nikki Kothenbeutal.

 The Falcons outshot Eau Claire 46-14.
