Wisconsin Women's Hockey team on cruise control

Behind 22 saves from senior goaltender Jessie Vetter and goals from four different Badgers, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team defeated St. Cloud State 4-1 at the Kohl Center Friday afternoon.

Kyla Sanders (Fort Myers, Fla.), Mallory Deulce (London, Ontario), Jinelle Zaugg (Eagle River, Wis.), and Kelly Nash (Bonita, Calif.) all recorded goals for Wisconsin (17-6-2, 13-4-2 WCHA) who extended their season-long winning streak to 7 games.

The Badgers got off to a quick start as they were able to notch the game’s first goal just 8 seconds into the contest. St. Cloud State won the face-off, but Jasmine Giles (Ottawa, Ontario) won the puck back for Wisconsin before feeding it to Sanders who scored, giving the Badgers an early 1-0 lead. The goal was the fastest to start a game as well as the fastest to start a period in Wisconsin women’s hockey history, besting the previous record of 11 seconds held by former Badger Linsday Macy.

UW will look to tally its eight-straight victory as the Badgers and the Huskies wrap up their series tomorrow afternoon at the Kohl Center at 1 p.m. Fans are invited to help ‘Fill the ‘Bowl’ as three local businesses will donate $1 for every fan in attendance to Second Harvest Foodbank.
