Wisconsin women’s hockey upsets Ohio State to take home national championship
The Wisconsin women’s hockey dynasty continued in upset fashion on Sunday as the Badgers defeated Ohio State 1-0 to take home their seventh NCAA title.
Freshman forward Kristen Simms’ first period goal was the difference as the Badgers played an unfamiliar role as the underdog.
With the win, Wisconsin hoisted there seventh national championship trophy which broke a tie with Minnesota for most all-time. It makes it even sweeter that the Badgers surpassed their rival in the process.
While the Badgers are usually the favorite, a WCHA tournament loss to Minnesota meant that had to claw their way back to the national championship. They did just that and ended it with a win over the Buckeyes:
