Badger Women win in shootout

The Badger Women defeated the Bulldogs in a shootout earlier today, after finishing overtime with a 2-2 draw. So for conference purposes, the Badgers took all 4 points this weekend and now sit at the top of the WCHA with 15 points. (For NCAA pairwise purposes, it's a win yesterday and a tie today.)

The Badger goals today were scored by Angie Keseley and Brooke Ammerman. Kelly Nash scored the only shootout goal.

Erika Lawler was tossed from the game -- 5-min major for slew-footing and 10-min misconduct.

From the NCAA rulebook (thanks to dave on uscho):
SECTION 48. Slew-footing is the act of a player or goalkeeper using the
leg or foot to knock or kick opponents’ feet from under them, or pushing
opponents’ upper body backward with an arm or elbow, and at the same time
with a forward motion of the leg, knocking or kicking opponents’ feet from
under them, causing the player to fall violently to the ice.
PENALTY–Major and game misconduct or disqualification at discretion
of the referee.
If the Madison papers have any articles tomorrow, I'll link 'em up for you. If not, I'll at least catch the campus papers on Monday.
