MADISON, Wis. (UW Athletics) -- The top-ranked Wisconsin women's hockey team opened up a six-game home stretch on Friday afternoon with a 5-1 win over Lindenwood, lengthening their impressive winning streak that marks the best start in program history.

Sophomore Emily Clark paced the Wisconsin offense, scoring a pair of goals, while freshman Sophia Shaver, senior Molly Doner and senior Rachel Jones each lit the lamp once for Wisconsin. Junior defenseman Jenny Ryan added a pair of assists and leads the nation in defensemen points with 18 this season.

Sophomore Annie Pankowski collected an assist to extend her point streak to 16 games, which is tied for the sixth-longest in program.

Ann-Renee Desbiens stopped 11 of the 12 shots she faced to improve to 12-0-0 this season. She also collected her 49th career win, which is the fourth-most in program history.

The Badgers concluded the game having outshot the Lions 50-12, and are just one of two unbeaten teams left in the nation along with Boston College.

Wisconsin looks to extend their streak as they face Lindenwood again this Sunday at LaBahn Arena, with the puck dropping at 2 p.m.
