No.8 UMD women’s hockey sweeps weekend against No.2 Wisconsin

The No.8 University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) women’s hockey team was looking for a weekend sweep against No.2 Wisconsin, after a 3-1 win on Saturday.

Annika Linser scored the only goal of the game as UMD won 1-0.

Emma Soderberg has now tied former UMD All-American and Swedish Olympian Kim Martin with 16 shutouts in her career.

“Defense was locked in, everybody did her job. None bigger than Soderberg and that with 120 minutes one goal against and that came pretty early in yesterday’s game. So it starts there and it worked its way out,” stated head coach Maura Crowell.

The Bulldogs have now swept the Badgers for the first time since 2012, and the first time on the road since 2007.

Marking the fourth ever in Madison in program history.

“I thought we just did a really good job of taking advantage of our opportunities offensively when we had them. I think it’s extremely encouraging for the rest of the semester and where our team can go,” concluded Crowell.
