MANKATO, Minn. --- The Minnesota State women's hockey team was unable to keep up in Saturday afternoon's contest, as 12 different Badgers tallied at least one point.

Minnesota State saw a few unlucky bounces go against them in the first period as Wisconsin was able to come away with four goals in the first frame. Not until the 11:30 mark did the #3 Badgers produce their first strike of the game. After freshman Leila Kilduff (San Jose, Calif.) was called for a tripping minor, a triangle of Mellissa Channel, Maddie Rolfes, and Sam Cogan worked the puck up at the point on the UW power-play. The Badgers finished off the play with Channell firing the puck past a screened Minnesota State goaltender, junior Leila Kilduff (Newcastle, Ont.). Wisconsin struck again just two minutes later on an MSU power-play opportunity where Sophia Shaver produced her first short-handed goal of the season. The Badgers then rattled off two more goals in the next four minutes to cap off the first period.

In the second stanza, the Mavericks were able to keep pace with Wisconsin, as the Badgers were only held to four shots in the frame. Minnesota State saw an advantage in the period as they outshot UW by a clip of eight to four.

In the third, the Badgers found their step as they peppered Quade with 16 more shots, capitalizing on three of them. Just 23 second into the period, Rachel Jones tapped in a pass from Cogan on a play that was started by Erika Sowchuck. Three and a half minutes later, on a Badger power-play, Annie Pankowski took a pass from Rolfes., Pankowski shot the puck and bounced it in off of Sydney Mckibbon's glove. The Badgers tallied one more netter at the 8:31 mark of the period to solidify the W.

By the time the final whistle blew, Minnesota State had put 18 shots on net while the Badgers recorded 31. The Badgers also found an advantage on the power-play as they were a perfect two for two compared to the Mavericks going 0-3 on the afternoon. Quade tallied 24 saves in the game while Badgers' goalie Ann-Renee Desbiens handled a perfect 18 stops.

Minnesota State (2-9-1, 0-9-0 WCHA) will resume action on November 13-14, as they head to St. Cloud, Minn. to take on Western Collegiate Hockey Association foe, the St. Cloud State Huskies.
