NCAA Women's Hockey Final: UW 5, Mercyhurst 0
BOSTON (AP) -- Jessie Vetter stopped 37 shots for an NCAA record 14th shutout of the season -- and her second in a national championship game -- and Wisconsin won its third women's hockey title in four years on Sunday with a 5-0 victory over Mercyhurst.
Angie Keseley had a goal and two assists, and Erika Lawler had three assists for the Badgers (34-2-5) to join Vetter, the 2006 Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player and this year's Patty Kazmaier Award winner, as three-time national champions. Meghan Duggan had a goal and an assist and Brooke Ammerman and Malee Windmeier also scored for Wisconsin.
Hillary Pattenden stopped 27 shots for Mercyhurst (31-6-0), which reached the Frozen Four for the first time; the other three teams in Boston all had NCAA title pedigrees.
