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.
