Wisconsin women's hockey drops 3-0 decision to UND

Posted:

 

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- It took the 13th attempt for North Dakota to break a winless streak against Wisconsin, but UND was finally able to break through as the Wisconsin women's hockey dropped a 3-0 decision Friday night at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
 
The Badgers are now 14-7-2 (10-7-2-2 WCHA) and remain in second place in the WCHA, while North Dakota improves to 14-9-0 (9-8-0-0 WCHA).
 
The 12-game undefeated streak that Wisconsin held against UND entering this weekend spanned back three years to Jan. 9, 2010. It also marks the first wins against Wisconsin for U.S. Olympians Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux since enrolling at North Dakota.
 
Wisconsin battled hard in the game as the last two goals were conceded in the final three minutes of play, with one coming off a UND power play. The Badgers played through the first two periods, with UND only taking a slight edge in shots, 15-12.
 
Jocelyne Lamoureux scored the first two goals for North Dakota, while assisting on the third.
 
Junior goaltender Alex Rigsby made a total of 27 saves on the night, including six on the penalty kill.
 
Wisconsin had five power-play opportunities on the night, taking a total of six shots on net with the man advantage.
 
The Badgers return to the ice tomorrow to finish the series with North Dakota at 7 p.m.
