Madison, Wis. - The streak goes on.
Senior defenseman Rachel Ramsey scored with one minute left in overtime as the Gophers rallied to edge No. 1-rated Wisconsin 2-1 on Saturday afternoon in a WCHA women's hockey game at LaBahn Arena.
The victory was Minnesota's 13th in a row over their archrival; the Gophers are unbeaten against the Badgers in their past 15 meetings. Wisconsin has not won in this border-battle series since Oct. 14, 2011, at Kohl Center.
Ramsey's first goal of the season came at even strength before a sellout crowd, announced as 2,273. Dani Cameranesi, who had a game-high nine shots on goal, and Hannah Brandt had assists.
No. 2 Minnesota (5-0-1, 3-0-1 WCHA) tied the score at 1-all on Rachael Bona's power-play goal with 1:28 to play in the third period. It also was her first goal of the season.
"Just an incredible win on the road, something that I know our players are going to cherish," Gophers coach Brad Frost said. "To be down 1-0 with a couple minutes left and tie it up and then win it in overtime was big for this team. Coming back to win on the road against a really good team like Wisconsin was pretty special."
The Badgers led 1-0 going into the third period after Sarah Nurse scored on a power play at 7:34 of the second period.
"We challenged our big-time players between the second and third period to be a little better, and they absolutely did that," Frost said.
Wisconsin (6-2-0, 4-2-0) outshot the Gophers every period — except in overtime when the visitors had a 4-2 edge — but Gophers goalie Amanda Leveille made a career-high 40 saves.
