• Senior Kaila Sargema gave the Vikings a 1-0 lead with her team-leading fifth goal of the season at the 38:05 mark.

• CSU out-shot the Flames, 13-9, and had an 8-3 advantage in shots on goal.
• Senior Kaila Sargema is tops on the team with five goals and 10 points and is tied for eighth in the League in goals.
