No. 1 Wisconsin women’s hockey keeps rolling.

The Badgers (15–1–0, 7–1 WCHA) defeated Harvard in a pair of overtime games over the weekend, winning 3–2 Friday and 2–1 Saturday in Madison.

On Friday, Annie Pankowski netted a pair of goals, including a highlight-reel, takeaway score to tie the game at one and the game-winner in overtime as Wisconsin fended off a game Crimson squad looking to upend the top team in the country. Goaltender Kristen Campbell made 14 saves in the win.

The Badgers completed the sweep Saturday, winning their second overtime game of the series.

Britta Curl put Wisconsin up early before Pankowski netted the game-winner in the extra period. Campbell turned away 15 shots, improving Wisconsin’s No. 1-rated defense to 1.12 goals against on the year.

Syracuse (4–10–1) comes to town next weekend for a two-game series at LaBahn. Puck drops for game one at 2 p.m. CT Saturday.
