Wellhausen's hat trick powers Wisconsin to WCHA final

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Senior captain Baylee Wellhausen netted her second-career hat trick to lead the No. 1 Wisconsin women's hockey team past Bemidji State, 4-1, Saturday at Ridder Arena, punching a ticket to the WCHA Final Face Off championship game Sunday. 
 
Wisconsin (30-3-2) struck early in the opening frame after sophomore Abby Roque fed a pass to a wide-open Wellhausen at the top of the crease who knocked it between the legs of Bemidji State (16-19-3) goaltender Kerigan Dowhy to give the Badgers a 1-0 lead. 
 
Beavers' forward Emma Terres scored BSU's lone goal of the game to even the score at one late in the first period, but Wellhausen put the Badgers back up by one after scoring UW's first shorthanded goal of the season at the 8:54 mark of the second period. Roque picked up her second assist of the game on the goal. 
 
Junior defenseman Maddie Rolfes grabbed her fifth goal of the season midway through the third period to extend the Badgers lead to three before Wellhausen sealed the victory with an empty-netter goal, her third of the day. 

Wisconsin will take on the winner of Ohio State and Minnesota on Sunday in the WCHA title game.
