UW Women's Hockey wins in front of record crowd

Senior Jinelle Zaugg scored two goals as the No. 5 Wisconsin women’s hockey team defeated No. 9 St. Cloud State 4-0 Saturday afternoon at the Kohl Center.

5,377 fans attended the game which set a new NCAA women’s hockey attendance record as well as a Kohl Center record.

As was the case in yesterday’s game, Wisconsin (18-6-2, 13-4-2 WCHA) was able to get on the board early. The UW went up 1-0 at 4:25 into the first period when Meghan Duggan (Danvers, Mass.) took a shot just to the left of the St. Cloud (15-7-4, 10-7-3)net and Zaugg (Eagle River, Wis.) was there to put back the rebound giving the Badgers an early lead.

Wisconsin finished the game 1-for-5 on the power play compared to St. Cloud who was 0-for-6.

The Badgers are at home again next weekend when they face off against North Dakota on Feb. 2-3 at the Kohl Center. Both games are slated to begin at 2 p.m.
