Badgers crush Fighting Sioux

Women's hockey scores seven Sunday for sweep

The No. 5 Wisconsin women's hockey team owned North Dakota Sunday in Grand Forks, N.D., handing the Fighting Sioux (3-10-1 overall, 3-9-0 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) a 7-2 thrashing.

Wisconsin (9-3, 7-3) spread out its goal scoring among six players and 13 different Badgers contributed an assists or goal.

The Badgers were particularly hot in the first stanza, scoring five goals within 20 minutes, including one just 44 seconds into the game. Sophomore forward Lindsay Macy, freshman forward Jinelle Zaugg, senior forward Jackie Friesen, sophomore defender Kristen Witting and junior forward Cyndy Kenyon all netted goals for the Badgers before the first intermission buzzer sounded.

Sophomore forward Meaghan Mikkelson scored in the second period and Friesen picked up her second goal of the game in the third period.

Freshman Cami Wooster and sophomore Sarah Connelly were the only Fighting Sioux to get their shots past Wisconsin netminder Meghan Horras. Horras had a quiet day, finishing with only nine saves on 11 shots on goal.

UND began with junior Amber Hasbargen but pulled her 10 minutes into the game, after she let three pucks into the net. Replacement junior Margaret-Ann Hinkley fared no better, stopping 15 shots but letting four get by in 50 minutes.

UW senior defender Carla MacLeod tallied two assists and Mikkelson and Kenyon each added helpers as well. No Badger had more than two points.
