Wartburg again jumped back in front just over two minutes into the second half before Nicole Dolcimascolo started a three-goal Buccaneer run at the 23:10 mark.

Drexler followed three minutes later to put the Bucs in front and Evans completed the run at 19:58 to make it 5-3.

Wartburg got back within 5-4 at 15:58 but Drexler helped Beloit regain their two-goal advantage with a free position goal at 6:26. Wartburg again pulled to within one at 5:11 but the Bucs made their one-goal lead stand up.

Marie Bonine made 14 saves in goal.

• In Saturday’s game, Dolcimascolo had three goals while Drexler and Evans added two in the win.

Beloit travels to Carroll for a non-conference game Wednesday at 5 p.m., before getting back to MWLC play next weekend.
