The UND women's hockey finally got to Wisconsin goalie Ann-Renee Desbiens a couple of times Sunday afternoon. It wasn't nearly enough, though. Sarah Nurse scored four goals for Wisconsin and the top-ranked Badgers finished a two-game sweep of UND with a 5-2 victory in Ralph Engelstad Arena. Nurse finished the weekend with five of Wisconsin's seven goals as the Badgers stayed perfect at 7-0-1. UND dropped to 4-3-1.
UND captain Gage Ausmus had a request for coach Brad Berry this week. As Berry split his seven defensemen into groups of three and four for practice, Ausmus asked to be in the group with three. "He wanted to get his heart rate up," Berry said. The East Grand Forks Senior High defensemen—Ausmus and Tucker Poolman—won't have that problem this season.
Wisconsin has played three games in Ralph Engelstad Arena in the last two years with the nation's No. 1 ranking. The Badgers only managed to beat UND's goaltenders once in those three games. But when you have Ann-Renee Desbiens in net, one goal can be enough to get points. Wisconsin's Emily Clark scored with 13:06 left in the third period and Sarah Nurse iced it with an empty-net goal as the Badgers beat UND 2-0 in a showdown between top-10 teams Saturday afternoon.
Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux are preparing to make a run at a third Olympic medal in two years. They're also busy preparing to usher in the next generation of local girls hockey players. While they'll be off to Finland to compete in the Four Nations tournament this weekend, the Lamoureuxs are part of a local group that has organized an event Sunday for girls to try hockey for the first time for free.
Nobody grabbed the puck for Charly Dahlquist. Technically, when she re-directed a point shot in the net against Minnesota State-Mankato last week, it wasn't her first collegiate goal. In the playoffs last year, she scored an empty-netter. But the one against the Mavericks, she said, felt like her first-career goal. It was a long time coming. The former Eden Prairie (Minn.) High School star and UND sophomore forward waited 33 games to do it. Then she waited 11 minutes, 25 seconds to do it again.
Brock Boeser skated in alone on a breakaway, trying to finish off a hat trick. His snap shot hit the outside of the post. Sure, he got a light tap...

Christian Wolanin has a theory why UND is off to a 3-0 start for the first time since 2009. "It's because we haven't played Bemidji to start the year," he said. He might be on to something. Bemidji State, which started its Division-I era going 0-19-1 against its U.S. Highway 2 rival, has suddenly become one of UND's biggest annual pests. It has now been five seasons since UND has swept Bemidji State. It has been six years since UND has done it in the regular season.
