Bemidji's Erickson helps Gopher women win national championship
Bemidji High School graduate Sarah Erickson scored two goals as Minnesota held off defending national champion Wisconsin 4-2 Sunday before about 2,000 fans at Amsoil Arena in Duluth as the Gophers captured their first NCAA Division I national championship since winning back-to-back titles in 2004 and '05.
Goaltender Noora Raty had 42 saves for Minnesota and teammate Emily West became the first person to score a penalty-shot goal in the championship game.
