Last night I had the priv­i­lege of shoot­ing Div. I women’s hock­ey for USCHO.com. I was lucky enough to cap­ture im­ages from the his­toric Uni­ver­si­ty of North Dako­ta win over the Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta — the first in the program’s his­to­ry — and be one of only two still pho­tog­ra­phers at the game.

I would like to thank Ryan Cole­man for the as­sign­ment and let­ting me use his lens, Melis­sa Wade for the use of my pho­to (be­low) on USCHO.com and Go­pher women’s hock­ey SID Michelle Traen for the as­sis­tance with my ques­tions and stats and for ap­prov­ing the ac­cess.

Uni­ver­si­ty of North Dako­ta de­fend­er Jor­dan Slavin (7) (Fr., Erie, Colo./Erie Se­lect U19) cel­e­brates a his­toric 4–3 win over host Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta with team­mates Stephanie Roy (39) (Sr., Grande-Digue, New Brunswick/Hebron Acad­e­my) and goal­tender Jorid Dagfin­rud (So., Sarps­borg, Norway/IHK Spar­ta Sarps­borg) and cen­ter Jo­ce­lyn Lam­oureux on Oct. 15, 2010 at Rid­der Are­na in Min­neapo­lis, Minn. Slavin, play­ing her first game of the sea­son, scored the game-win­ning goal 32 sec­onds into the third pe­ri­od, break­ing a 3–3 tie. The win is the first for North Dako­ta over the Uni­ver­si­ty of Min­neso­ta in 29 chances af­ter the UND pro­gram be­gan in 2002. (Pho­to by Caleb Williams/d3photography.com)
