Wisconsin scores at last second to beat BC 1-0 in semis

  Wisconsin is heading to the championship after a last-minute goal broke the scoreless tie.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. — The stage was set for overtime when Wisconsin senior defender Melissa Channell had another idea against Boston College. But her game-winning goal surprised her. 

Off an assist from freshman Abby Roque and junior Annie Pankowski, Channell scored with 16.2 seconds left in the third period to lift Wisconsin to a 1-0 victory Friday evening in the semifinals of the 2017 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four at The Family Arena.

“In all honesty, I don’t know what happened,” said Channell, who scored just her third goal this season. “I think Annie passed it back to me and I just took a shot. I wasn’t really aiming it. I was just shooting for the net and hoping for a rebound or something.”

Wisconsin (33-2-4) advances to the championship game, which will be 3 p.m. ET Sunday.

“The team is excited, and our seniors are excited,” said Wisconsin coach Mark Johnson.
