ST. CLOUD, Minn. — For the second straight day, the St. Cloud State women's hockey team got strong goaltending.

JoJo Chobak, a junior from Chicago, made 20 saves to help lead the Huskies to a 4-0 win over St. Thomas and a WCHA series sweep on Saturday at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.

It was the second shutout of the season for Chobak, a transfer from Minnesota Duluth. Chobak improved to 2-2 with a 2.34 goals-against average and .926 save percentage. Chobak's performance came a day after a 13-save performance by junior Sanni Ahola in a 4-1 win over the Tommies.

The goalies helped the Huskies (2-6-0 WCHA, 4-6-0 overall) to their first conference sweep under first-year head coach Brian Idalski.

Junior center Emma Gentry had her first two-goal game of the season, senior center Klára Hymlárová and fifth-year center Jenniina Nylund each added goals for the Huskies.


Hymlárová had three goals in the series and has six on the season. Last season, she had two goals in 15 games for the Huskies. Nylund had two goals and two assists in the series and leads the Huskies with seven goals and 12 points on the season.

Senior wing Addi Scribner had two assists for the Huskies, who did not have a power play and were 3-for-3 on the penalty kill.

Alexa Dobchuk, a senior from Eden Prairie, had 22 saves for the Tommies (0-6-0, 1-7-0).

Next weekend, the Huskies play at Bemidji State (1-7-0, 3-8-1) at 3 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday (both on B1G+).
