Bucky Badger logoThe Wisconsin women’s hockey team saw its season come to an end, falling to the rival Minnesota Gophers for the third-straight year in the NCAA Frozen Four.

The Badgers fell 3-2 in overtime in Durham, New Hampshire.

Ann-Renee Desbiens had a career high 38 saves in goal for the Badgers, who got goals from freshman Sophia Shaver and sophomore Emily Clark in the loss.

Wisconsin (35-4-1) outshot Minnesota (34-3-1) 6-to-4 in the overtime period but Minnesota’s Sarah Potomak was able to steal the puck and put the puck past Desbiens for the victory.

The Minnesota victory gave them a split in the season series with the Badgers (3 wins apiece), but its the Badgers going home and the Gophers advancing to the NCAA Frozen Four Championship game on Sunday.
