The No. 1 Wisconsin women's hockey team battled to a 2-2 tie against No. 10 Ohio State on Saturday afternoon in front of a sellout crowd at LaBahn Arena.
Freshman Sophie Shirley and senior Emily Clark scored for Wisconsin (28-4-2, 18-4-2-0 WCHA) in Saturday's matchup.
The Buckeyes (18-12-2, 12-10-2-2) got on the board just 23 seconds into the contest off a shot from Ohio State’s Emma Maltais to take an early lead. Ohio State would score again in the second period on a power-play at the 12:13 mark of the frame to extended its lead to two.
However, the Badgers found life late in the third period as Shirley sparked some magic by burying a goal top-shelf with just 4:29 left in the third frame.
Still down a goal, the Badgers needed a miracle to tie things up and found one from Clark who snuck the puck past OSU netminder Andrea Braendli to send things to overtime on senior day.
After a scoreless extra time period, the Badgers fell 2-1 in the shootout and the Buckeyes stole a point in the WCHA standings to end the regular season.
