Junior forward Jackie Friesen provided a hat trick and freshman Lindsay Macy added two goals as Wisconsin's women' hockey team easily defeated Bemidji State 6-0 Saturday in Madison.


The No. 5 Badgers are at 17-5-1 in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, a record that now ties their program's best finish in league play.


Friesen had a goal in the second period and two in the third for her second career three-goal game. Macy led off the scoring with two goals in the first period that were only seven seconds apart, setting a new school record for shortest amount of time between consecutive goals. Senior forward Steph Millar added a second-period goal.


The Badgers dominated offensively, out-shooting Bemidji State 49-14, while sophomore goalie Meghan Horras earned her third shutout of the year. Wisconsin moves to 23-5-3 overall while Bemidji State falls to 5-26-2 overall and 3-19-1 in conference play.


Wisconsin and Bemidji State will meet again Sunday at 2:05 p.m. in the final regular season game for both teams.
