SAINT PAUL, Minn. - The University of Dubuque women's lacrosse didn't let a Midwest winter storm warning slow them down on Saturday.

Tjaarda scored on 6-9 shots, collected a dozen ground balls, and won 14 draw controls. King would take advantage of 3-5 free position shots as Carlson led the team with 11 shots and won three draw controls.

Defensively Kaley Weir stopped eight shots to earn the victory in the net. She has 49 saves this season and a save percentage of .533. Carlson leads the team in caused turnovers with nine.
