To be fair, Northeastern's leading scorer in the 2003-04 campaign, Cyndy Kenyon, did transfer to the Wisconsin women's hockey team this season.
But Northeastern (2-10-1 overall) simply could not produce offensively after coming off an 8-1 loss to No. 1 Minnesota Friday. Northeastern took only seven shots on goal to the Badgers' 53 as they defeated the Huskies 4-0 Saturday at the Harvard Shootout in Boston. Badger sophomore netminder Christine Dufour collected her third shutout of the season in the rout. The seven shots were the fewest the Badgers (11-3-0) have seen this season. Northeastern junior netminder Marisa Hourihan, meanwhile, finished with 49 saves.
Senior defenseman Molly Engstrom scored the Badgers' first goal on a power play with at 14:50 in the first period with help from senior defenseman Carla MacLeod and junior forward Sharon Cole.
Sophomore forward Lindsay Macy netted Wisconsin's second goal with just fewer than six minutes remaining in the second period, firing a shot from between the circles that sailed into the net.
Freshman defender Emily Morris was the star of the third period, collecting her first and second goals at the college level. Her first came at 4:17, with help from sophomore forward Meaghan Mikkelson and Kenyon. She added Wisconsin's fourth goal 11 minutes later, with assists from sophomore forward Heidi Kletzien and senior forward Amy Vermeulen, who earned her first point of the season after competing with the women's soccer team.
Wisconsin returns home to face Minnesota Dec. 4-5 at 2:05 p.m. at the Kohl Center.
