Women's Hockey

Abby Roque and the Badgers face Minnesota in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. UW lost to the Gophers 3-1 last week in the WCHA Tournament championship.

Unranked Northeastern stun top-ranked Badgers in Washington road trip

ARLINGTON, VA — Wisconsin’s trip to the nation’s capitol was supposed to serve as a chance for a pair of additional non-conference games, as well as continue Head Coach Mark Johnson’s tradition of playing neutral site games in areas without a women’s collegiate program. But instead the number-one ranked Badgers (16-1-0) were dealt their first loss of the season Friday in a monumental upset, as they fell to upstart Northeastern (8-7-1) 3-2 in suburban Washington D.C. The Huskies capitalized on a slow start from UW and a sterling, 39-save performance from freshman goalie Aerin Frankel to become the first unranked team to beat Wisconsin since Bemidji State in January of 2015. “We didn’t capitalize on our opportunities and their goaltender played really well,” Johnson said. It didn’t take Northeastern long to jump out to a surprising lead.

Badgers look to continue winning ways against Cornell

For the third week in a row, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team is facing a ranked opponent. After sweeping No. 4 Ohio State last weekend (now ranked No. 5) by a combined score of 10-1, the No. 1 Badgers (14-0-0) travel to Ithaca, New York this weekend to take on #7 Cornell (3-1-0). The Badgers, off to their second-best start in program history, head into the series against the Big Red with confidence gained from two straight sweeps over ranked rival opponents, Minnesota and Ohio State.

Wisconsin moved to 10-0-0 for only second time in program history after a win against Bemidji State.

Tremendous through ten: Wisconsin moves to 10-0 after Bemidji State victory

In its only home series of the month, the Wisconsin Badgers continued its winning ways. The women’s hockey team extended its winning streak, and it is now 10-0-0 after a convincing 5-1 victory against the Bemidji State Beavers (1-6-1). It is the second time in team history that the Badgers have started off with ten straight wins, with the 2015-16’ team being the last to do it. Bemidji State’s record is slightly misleading.

No. 2 Badgers look to sophomores to keep home streak alive

Following a home sweep of Lindenwood last weekend, the No. 2 University of Wisconsin’s Women’s Hockey team (2-0-0) will look to continue a dominant home stand this weekend against Mercyhurst University (0-0-0). The Badgers defeated Lindenwood 3-1 on Friday and 4-0 on Saturday behind a goal and assist per game from sophomore forward Presley Norby.

Transfers help power Badgers to sweep of Lindenwood

The second-ranked Badgers (2-0) eased by Lindenwood (0-2) 4-0 Saturday behind strong performances from two players with equally improbable, yet diametrically different, paths to Madison. On a team full of freshmen, it was perhaps no surprise that forward Claudia Kepler scored her first goal as a Badger.
