Badger Women's Hockey Falls Short Of Championship Game

A 4-3 double-overtime loss to Colgate ends the season for the Wisconsin women’s hockey team in the N-C-A-A Frozen Four semifinals.  Wisconsin took twice as many shots, 48-to-24, and had several good scoring opportunities in the Saturday game which went two overtime periods.  On the other hand, the Badgers never led and gave up three power-play goals.  Baylee Wellhausen scored Wisconsin’s first goal to tie it at 1-1, then Claudia Kepler brought the Badgers from behind with her 22nd goal of the season to square the score at 2-2.  Sophomore Mekenzie Steffen knotted the score for the final time, 3-3, late in the third period, but the Red Raiders found the range in the closing minutes of the second overtime to earn the title shot against Clarkson.  Clarkson defended its national title Sunday with a 2-1 overtime win over Colgate.
