The Finlandia women's team got off to a hot 3-1-0 start before faltering a bit this weekend.
The Lions got two wins over St. Catherine Nov. 4-5 and the other victory against Buffalo State on Oct. 28. They opened the season with a loss to Elmira on Oct. 27 and Friday and Saturday tied and lost to Concordia at home. The games with Elmira and Buffalo State were in Flint as part of the Early Bird Tournament.
Finlandia's Sara Sleik scored at 5:10 of the third period to tie the game Friday night and nothing was settled in overtime. Bree Cote and Amy Danielson also scored for FU and Kendra Benson and Danielle Syrowik added two assists apiece. Katie Markovich made 18 saves for the Lions.
Last night, Concordia took a 5-2 win. Syrowik and Stephanie Emmi scored for Finlandia and Markovich and Corinne Czekaj combined for 28 stops. Markovich started and allowed four goals for the loss.
FU hosts Lake Forest next Saturday and Sunday.
