Megan Robertson, Augsburg

Boissevain, Manitoba / Boissevain

The Augsburg women's hockey team rallied to win on the road Saturday and earn a split of a weekend MIAC series against Saint Benedict to continue its hot start to the conference season. First-year forward Megan Robertson (Boissevain, Manitoba) had a breakout performance with three points in the two games, including a pair of goals to lead the way in Saturday's 5-2 road victory. For her performance, the MIAC sports information directors honored Robertson Monday with the MIAC Women's Hockey Athlete-of-the-Week award.

Robertson contributed an assist Friday in a narrow 3-2 home loss to the Blazers, and played even better the following day. The Auggie rookie recorded her first career multi-goal game as she lit the lamp twice in Augsburg's 5-2 victory in St. Cloud. Robertson scored both of her goals in the second period, as the first gave her team a 2-1 lead, and the second closed the scoring to push Augsburg's lead to 5-2. This season, Robertson has three goals and two assists for a total of five points.

Thanks to the split, the Auggies are now 4-4-2 overall and 4-1-1 in MIAC play, and their nine points have them tied with St. Thomas for second place in the conference standings. This is Augsburg's best six-game start in MIAC play since a 6-0 start in 1999-2000. The Auggies - who are 4-1-1 in their last six games - will try to stay hot Saturday when they travel across the border to the East to face UW-Eau Claire on the road in a 2 p.m. nonconference game. That will conclude Augsburg's 2014 portion of the schedule, and it will return to the ice on Jan. 9, 2015.
