WSU sophomore goalie Val Turcotte
The Wayne State women's team opened the season with a 1-1 tie at Bemidji State on Friday night, but fell, 2-1, Saturday afternoon.
Senior Jessica Haydahl scored the lone goal for the Warriors the first night as her goal came with just seven seconds left in what proved to be a busy first period as the two teams combined for 28 shots on goal.
Sophomore goalie Val Turcotte made 35 saves for WSU.
Saturday, freshman Lindsay DiPietro scored Wayne State's only goal and Turcotte finished with 20 saves.
The Warriors will return to Detroit for four consecutive home games beginning with the home opener against St. Lawrence at City Sports Center Arena on Friday.
