Lady Badgers continuing to beat down opponents on ice

MADISON, Wis. -- Freshman Hilary Knight recorded a hat trick and an
assist and sophomore Kyla Sanders notched two goals and an assist as the
No. 5 Wisconsin women’s hockey team won their ninth straight game and
defeated North Dakota 6-1 Saturday afternoon at the Kohl Center.

Knight’s hat trick, which gives her the team lead in goals, was the
first of her career and UW’s first since Oct. 20 when Mallory Deluce
scored three goals for the Badgers. Also, with her two goals this
afternoon, Sanders (Fort Myers, Fla.) now has three multi-goal games on
the season.

Wisconsin will be looking to win its 10th straight game when it hosts
UND in the series finale tomorrow afternoon at 2 p.m. at the Kohl
Center. The team will host its annual Senior Day prior to tomorrow’s
contest and fans are also invited to Skate with the Badgers following
the conclusion of the game.
