Pine Creek grad West leads Gopher women’s comeback

Pine Creek High School graduate Emily West of Colorado Springs scored twice in four minutes in the third to spark the No. 2 Minnesota women to a 3-2 home win over Bemidji State on Friday.

The Gopher senior co-captain got the equalizer nine minutes into the third period on a power play score followed by an unassisted goal exactly four minutes later.

According to Minnesota sports information, it was West’s 10th goal of the season, and second game-winner this season. It marked the eighth multiple-goal game in her college career and tied her personal record for goals in a game.
