It always feels good to beat Minnesota.

A day after defeating the Gophers 3–2, No. 1 Wisconsin (12–0–0, 6–0–0 WCHA) completed the series sweep on Sunday with a 2–1 overtime victory. It was Wisconsin’s first road sweep of Minnesota (5–4–1, 4–3–1–0 WCHA) since 2006-07.

Sophomore forward Alexis Mauermann opened the scoring off of a Sam Cogan pass after a Gophers turnover.

Minnesota tied the game a minute later on a Grace Zumwickle goal. That was it for the rest of regulation, but senior forward Baylee Wellhausen netted the game-winner just 1:32 into overtime.

Goaltender Kristen Campbell made 16 saves on the day.

Wisconsin next faces off against No. 4 Ohio State Saturday and Sunday at LaBahn Arena in a battle of top-five teams.
