Senior Sam Cogan staked the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team to a two-target direct over Bemidji Point out after coming alive in the 2nd time period.
Immediately after heading scoreless in the first time period, top-ranked UW posted a 4- shutout Saturday afternoon to split a two-game set in Bemidji, Minnesota.
Cogan opened the scoring for the Badgers (24-4-, 14-4– Western Collegiate Hockey Association) off a pass from freshman Sophie Shirley in the opening minute of the 2nd time period.
The direct grew to 2- after Cogan scored her 2nd target off a feed from senior Emily Clark at the 8:39 mark in the 2nd.
“As soon as we obtained the first target it just peaceful every person and we started to participate in as we typically do,” UW coach Mark Johnson stated of the Badgers’ results in the 2nd time period.
The Beavers (10-16-2, 7-9-2-) unsuccessful to get on the board after handing the Badgers a 2-1 decline Friday.
Freshman Britta Curl slid the puck past Bemidji Point out goalie Kerigan Dowhy to set UW forward 3- at the 12:56 mark in the 2nd.
Senior Maddie Rolfes added the closing target in the third by launching the puck the size of the ice for an vacant-netter.
Badgers goalie Kristen Campbell shut down the Beavers, who experienced 15 pictures on target.
Cogan stated UW responded well to Friday’s decline.
“I assume there was a large amount extra electricity currently in the space and on the bench, that was a big thing,” Cogan stated. “We also came extra prepared. In the first game we came out wondering that mainly because we are Wisconsin we are heading to acquire routinely which is not legitimate. We need to perform for it and that is what modified in the 2nd game.”
