Badgers Take Down Blugolds | Championship Sunday
In yesterday's contest, the Badgers took care of business against WI State rival, UWEC! It was a hard fought game by both teams, with the good guys taking advantage of great chances late in the game.
The game was a stalemate through two periods. Badgers and Blugolds trading chances, neither goalie giving an inch as the 0-0 tie would carry from the first into the third.
From there, it was all Badgers! Harry Burmeister would start the scoring off a great slot snipe glove side to give the Badgers a 1-0 lead just before the 10 minute mark of the third! A few minutes later, Carson Gunderson found Jake Feldt streaking down the right wing where he would power it home to extend the lead to 2-0! Not even 30 seconds later, Pitts tipped home a point shot to make it 3-0 as the period continued to tick down! To finish off the 5-mintue major powerplay, Trace Tompkins would bury a slot rebound with an absolute missile to make it 4-0 good guys! The Blugolds would tally one when an errant tip found its way past Goss to make it 4-1 with less than a minute to go. Badgers would take the 4-1 win and punch their ticket to Championship Sunday for the second year in a row!
Today, the Badgers faceoff against SE division rival and #1 tournament seeded, #3 Central ranked St. Thomas. Earlier this semester, the Badgers fell in two close contests to the Tommies in Madison by finals of 3-5(EN) and 2-4. The Badgers will look to close out the weekend with Back-to-Back Carla Berg titles and punch their ticket officially to the regional tournament in Chesterfield, MO in two weeks!

As always, Roll Badge and On Wisconsin!
