Oct 11: In front of 1,469 fans, the Fighting Sioux defeated top-ranked Minnesota Duluth by a 4-2 mark. It marks the second time in the past two seasons that the Sioux have defeated a number one ranked team. The first time North Dakota beat a #1 team was against Wisconsin in 2009. This is also the first time that the Sioux have beaten the Bulldogs at home (and the third win against them ever). Goaltender Stephanie Ney got the win in her first start of the 2010-11 season. For her efforts, she was the WCHA Defensive Player of the Week for Oct. 13. She stopped 30 of 32 shots on goal as the Fighting Sioux were outshot 32-19. In addition, she also picked up an assist on teammate Monique Lamoureux’s power-play goal at 8:49 of the third period.
