first_imgIn a major upset, the University of Wisconsin Women’s Hockey team (24-4-0, 14-4-0 WCHA) fell to the unranked Bemidji State Beavers (10-16-2, 7-9-2) on Bemidji’s home ice Friday. With this just their fourth loss of the season, the Badgers were unable to hold a 1–0 lead as Bemidji State netted two goals midway through the third period. Mekenzie Steffen opened scoring for the Badgers in the second period after a scoreless first, giving Wisconsin their first and only lead of the night. Despite the Badgers managing to fire off 29 shots on top of the goal from Steffen, they remained scoreless the rest of the game after an impressive performance from Bemidji State goalkeeper Lauren Bench.The goal that ended up as the game-winner for the Beavers came during a power play following an interference penalty by senior Captain Annie Pankowski.Men’s hockey: Badgers earn two points in shot-filled series against Michigan StateThe University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team (9-12-5, 5-6-5-2 Big Ten) had a subpar outing this weekend in East Lansing, Read…Unfortunately for the Badgers, the shot from Lydia Passolt — originally off target — was deflected into the net and ultimately won the game for Bemidji State.Friday’s matchup certainly came with a disappointing finish for the Badgers, but the team was able to bounce back on Saturday by shutting out the Beavers in a 4–0 victory.Lead by senior Sam Cogan — rattling off two goals within eight minutes of each other — the Badgers jumped out to an early lead. Wisconsin maintained this lead throughout the second game of the series, holding the Beavers scoreless.The Wisconsin defensive line led this effort for the Badgers, as goalkeeper Kristen Campbell faced just 16 shots all game.
