No. 1 Badgers fall 3-1 to Minnesota in WCHA title game

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS -- Despite outshooting the Golden Gophers 32-24, the No. 1 Wisconsin women’s hockey team dropped a 3-1 battle against No. 7 Minnesota in the championship game of the 2018 WCHA Final Faceoff Sunday at Ridder Arena. 

After going down 1-0 early in the first period, Wisconsin (30-4-2) freshman Delaney Drake buried a rebound to notch her first collegiate goal to even the game at one. 

However, Minnesota (24-10-3) forward Taylor Williamson scored the game-winner in the opening minutes of the second frame to put the Gophers back up by one. 

The Badgers had several scoring chances in the third period, but Minnesota forward Nicole Schammel scored an empty-net goal with 14 seconds remaining to put the game out of reach. 

Wisconsin will host Minnesota at La Bahn Arena in the NCAA women's hockey quarterfinal on Saturday, 3/10, at 2pm.
