Dearborn, Mich. – After a three week layoff, the women's ice hockey team returned to action Thursday night hosting the Concordia University Cardinals.

Michigan-Dearborn took that momentum into the start of the second period with two quick goals just 43 seconds apart. Junior Kaylee Keledjian scored the first of three goals in the period with senior Brooke Speigel getting the lone assist. Just 43 seconds later, freshman Erin Murphy gave the Wolverines a 3-0 lead. Sophomore Riley Vandenheuvel assisted on Murphy's goal. Senior Claudia Maguire completed the scoring in the second period with junior Clare Murphy getting the assist.
Clare Murphy completed the scoring with a goal with 7:29 remaining the game with Welke and Maguire assisting on the game's final goal.
