(1) Wisconsin at Minnesota State

On Saturday, Makenna Webster and Casey O’Brien each scored their first career goals and Sydney Langseth scored for the Mavericks to make it 2-1 Wisconsin after two periods. Brittyn Fleming tied it up for Minnesota State midway through the third, but Daryl Watts scored with less than four minutes in the game to give the Badgers a 3-2 win. In game two, Brette Pettet’s goal with six minutes left in the game was the only tally, but it was enough to give Wisconsin a weekend sweep.
