North Dakota knocks off Wisconsin in WCHA Final Face-Off

Posted: Updated:

BEMIDJI, Minn. -- North Dakota knocked off No. 2 Wisconsin 1-0 in the semifinals of the WCHA Final Face-Off women's hockey tournament.

Meghan Dufault punched one past Alex Rigsby in the second period for the only goal of the game. Rigsby had 23 saves in the loss.

Wisconsin must now wait for the NCAA selections on Sunday. Head coach Mark Johnson hopes his team is ready for the upcoming challenge.

"The silver lining is that if you take the lessons you learn from this game -- and as I mentioned to the team, I'm okay with the way we played -- but if we want to move on at this time of the year you need to play better. If they take that away from the game then it's a good lesson to learn and we move on to the next one. Obviously we're fortunate to get another opportunity but that doesn't mean you're going to be successful unless you continue to learn. And for our younger players it's the first time through and hopefully some of the lessons they've learned from the past couple weekends will make us a tough out. Now you're three games away from a national championship, but the stakes are higher too."
