MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - For the first time since 2020, UW women’s hockey was back at the Kohl Center and brought in more than 14,000 fans to a top 15 matchup.

The Badgers set the second-highest NCAA women’s hockey single-game attendance mark of 14,430 in the battle against the Huskies in the seventh “Fill the Bowl” game at the Kohl Center.

In September, Wisconsin volleyball set an NCAA regular season attendance record at the Kohl Center, and after last night’s game Wisconsin is the only school to have three women’s sports draw over 8,200 fans for events this season.

No. 14 St. Cloud State came out on top on Friday night, blanking the No. 8 Badgers 1-0.

Wisconsin captain Britta Curl gave the Badgers the lead with a goal in the first period, but the Huskies challenged the play for offsides and were successful.
