August 14, 2019


WITH A.J. FELDMAN. >>A.J.: THE WISCONSIN BADGERS ENTERED TONIGHT’S GAME AGAINST THE BSU WOMEN’S HOCKEY TEAM AS THE NUMBER ONE TEAM IN THE COUNTRY, RIDING A 17-GAME UNBEATEN STREAK AGAINST THE BEAVERS AND THE BEAVERS HAD ONLY WON ONCE IN 38 GAMES AT HOME AGAINST WISCONSIN. BUT YA KNOW, SOMETIMES THE PAST JUST DOESN’T MATTER. AND YOU DROP THE PUCK. A WIN ALSO GIVES HEAD COACH JIM SCANLAN A TIE FOR MOST WINS IN PROGRAM HISTORY. IN THE FIRST, LAUREN BENCH STANDING ON HER HEAD TO KEEP THINGS SCORELESS. SHE HAD 29 SAVES ON THE NIGHT. THE BADGERS STRIKE FIRST, FIRING ONE FROM A BAD ANGLE AND MANAGES TO GO IN, BUT FOUR MINUTES LATER, KASA PARKS HERSELF IN FRONT AND BANKS THE REBOUND HOME. THE THIRD TIED, LYDIA STEPS UP AND FIRES IN FORT LEAD. BADGERS WITH AN EMPTY NET, SECONDS LEFT, GEORGE LAYS OUT FOR THE BLOCK AND THE BEAVERS TOPPLE THE NUMBER ONE TEAM IN THE COUNTRY. THE FIRST WIN AGAINST THE BADGERS SINCE 2015 AND A EUPHORIC FEELING AFTER THE GAME.>>INCREDIBLE. JUST AN INCREDIBLE FEELING TO WIN WITH YOUR TEAM AND GET THAT POSITIVE ENERGY AND EXCITEMENT. WOW, IT’S GREAT. IT’S UNBELIEVABLE.>>ANYTIME YOU GET A WIN IN THREE POINTS, BUT CERTAINLY AGAINST THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN AND THEY’RE RANKED NUMBER ONE AND IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME, NO QUESTION, IT’S A LITTLE BIT EXTRA SPECIAL.
