No. 1 Wisconsin beats No. 3 Minnesota in OT

  Wisconsin won a big win over No. 3 Minnesota in overtime.

MADISON, Wis. – In front of a sellout crowd at LaBahn Arena, Sophomore Annie Pankowski scored with 55 seconds left in overtime to lift the top-ranked Wisconsin women’s hockey team to a 3-2 overtime triumph over No. 3 Minnesota.

Pankowski’s overtime strike came on the Badgers’ third power-play of the game, as the Laguna Hills, California, native redirected a rocket from captain Courtney Burke. Pankowski extended her point streak to 20 games, the fifth-longest streak in program history.

With the win, the Badgers snapped their 18-game winless streak to their Border Battle rival, a streak that dated back to the 2011-12 season.

The Badgers (17-0-0, 11-0-0-0 WCHA) held the high-powered Golden Gopher (15-2-0, 11-2-0-0 WCHA) offense in check, allowing only two goals to Minnesota. UM entered the weekend averaging 6.06 goals per contest.

Sam Cogan and Rachel Jones tallied second-period goals as the two women’s hockey powerhouses combined for four goals in the second frame.

The two teams wrap up their series on Saturday with a 3 p.m. contest at LaBahn Arena.
