Ohio State Downs Wisconsin, 1-0, In Overtime To Capture WCHA Postseason Title


Buckeyes become first team in Final Faceoff history to win back-to-back OT games to claim crown

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – March 8, 2020 – Andrea Braendli stopped a season-high 41 shots and Tatum Skaggs scored 4:25 into overtime to give Ohio State a 1-0 victory over Wisconsin in the 2020 WCHA Final Faceoff Championship Game Sunday afternoon at Ridder Arena in Minneapolis.

Making just their second appearance in the WCHA championship game – and their first since 2001 - the victory gives the Buckeyes (24-8-6/13-6-5-2 WCHA) their first WCHA postseason title following just the fourth overtime contest in WCHA Championship Game history.

"Today was everyone giving everything they had," Ohio State head coach Nadine Muzerall said following the game. "We had never been on this stage before and we talked about making history and bringing the trophy back. I think the girls just wanted it so badly and were just itching for it. They did it together and didn't care who put the puck in the net. They just wanted to win."
