Vetter, McCready shut out Syracuse, Badgers score a lot of goals

Jessie Vetter and Alannah McCready combined to shut out Syracuse this afternoon as the Badgers won 8-0. Vetter had 5 saves in the 1st 2 periods, and McCready had 4 saves in the 3rd.

Freshman forward Brooke Ammerman had 4 goals. Nice!

The other Badger goals were scored by Kelly Nash, who had 2 goals, and Jasmine Giles and Erika Lawler, who had 1 goal each.

*Live stats on uwbadgers.com originally had Ammerman with 3 goals and 1 assist and Giles with 2 goals, but the scoresheet was revised to give Ammerman 4 goals and Giles 1 goal and 1 assist.

Like last night, Hilary Knight sat out this afternoon. FWIW, uscho fan forum chatter indicates she has a sore back and will be back next week.

No recaps of today's game available yet, but today's WSJ has a recap of last night's game.
