UW skaters settle for 2nd place

Print Article

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Cayley Mercer scored two goals and Shea Tiley recorded a shutout as Clarkson captured the NCAA women’s hockey National Championship with a 3-0 win over Wisconsin Sunday.

Tiley was brilliant in net for the Knights, making 41 saves. She insisted she tried to approach the title match as if it were just another game, but knew she would have to be at her best to beat Wisconsin goaltender Ann-Renee Desbiens.

“I know her from Hockey Canada,” Tiley said. “She’s the (Patty) Kazmaier Award winner. I just knew it was going to be a goalie battle to win it.”

The Badgers held a 41-20 advantage in shots on goal

Wisconsin (33-3-4) lost in the semifinals in each of the last three seasons and was ranked No.1 in the nation all season. The Badgers beat No. 2 Clarkson (32-4-5) twice in October at Potsdam, N.Y.

The loss ended a 22-game unbeaten streak by Wisconsin, which lost to Minnesota in the semifinals of the Frozen Four the last three seasons.

Desbiens recorded her 55th career shutout in a 1-0 win over Boston College in the semifinal.
