Women’s Hockey: Offensive weapons key in No. 1 Badgers’ continuing success

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (18-1-1, 10-1-1 WCHA) is off to another predictably hot start. With little loss in existing talent and the addition of Daryl Watts, the Badgers were primed for yet another successful season as they seek to add to the accomplishments of an already storied program.The chance at another trip to the national championship looms for the nearly undefeated Badgers at the midpoint of the season. With only one significant fault on the season to the Gophers, the Badgers are currently setting a similar pace to their 2018-2019 campaign that ultimately brought a national title back to Madison. Women’s Hockey: Wisconsin extends win streak to four games with victories over St. Cloud StateThe No. 2 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (14-1-1, 8-1-1 WCHA) traveled to St. Cloud to take on their Read…Since losing to the Gophers Nov. 2, the Badgers have won eight straight. Prior to their matchup against Minnesota Duluth, they landed the No. 1 ranking in the country after remaining at No. 2 for three weeks. The loss to Minnesota set them back, but a slew of impressive performances allowed the Badgers to reclaim the top spot in the nation. Wins against ranked teams such as Penn State, The Ohio State University, Bemidji State, Minnesota State and St. Cloud State — including domination over Harvard and Boston College at the Country Classic — put the Badgers in the perfect position to continue their journey towards another run at a national title. Although this team may be tough to beat, it is not impossible. Their difficulties with No. 2 Minnesota may be a threat to their shot at a back-to-back championship. They will face each other again later in the season in January, and the outcome may determine which team will head to Boston searching for a title. Last season, the Badgers also fell to the Gophers in their first contest of the season by a score of 0–1. Despite this early setback, it was how the Badgers handled business against the Gophers in the back half of the season that truly mattered. Even after they dropped their last regular-season matchup vs the Gophers, the Badgers went on to defeat them in both the WCHA tournament and the national championship game. Women’s Hockey: Wisconsin scuffles in weekend border battle against MinnesotaIn the first border battle of the 2019-20 season, the No. 2 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team (10-1-1, 4-1-1 Read…With Minnesota currently sitting at No. 2 in the nation, the Badgers’ future performances against them will be a perfect metric for whether or not their repeat-championship hopes are legitimate. Wisconsin’s schedule for the future is loaded with more conference matchups, including rematches with highly ranked conference opponents such as Minnesota, The Ohio State University and Minnesota-Duluth. The main reason for the Badgers’ rampant success this year has been their overbearing offensive production. In fact, the Badgers are currently performing worse this year defensively than last year, despite their comparatively impressive record. Goalkeeper Kristen Campbell currently has a save rate of 89%, placing her outside the top 25 goalkeepers in the nation for that statistic and underperforming last year’s rate by 5%. Campbell’s consistently stalwart performances last year, especially down the stretch, helped carry the Badgers to a national title. With her statistics slightly sliding, the results are made manifest in the Badgers’ goals allowed. In the 2018-2019 season, they allowed an average of exactly one goal per game. Now, nearly halfway through the season, that number has ballooned to 1.6 goals per game. While this may not seem like a large increase, it is notable to remember that the Badgers will consistently shutout a large number of non-competitive opponents throughout the season. In turn, this means that a majority of this increase in goals allowed per game is a result of goals scored by top-ranked teams — the same teams the Badgers will have to defeat if they are to bring a second straight title to Madison. With a defense that has slid from the impressive heights of last season, much of the burden has fallen on offensive production to lead the Badgers to their current record. Luckily for them, a number of players have stepped up to the challenge. Women’s Hockey: Daryl Watts’ journey from Boston College transfer to Wisconsin starDaryl Watts started playing hockey around the age of 4, following in the footsteps of her older brother Jackson. Little Read…In six of their last seven victories alone, the Badgers have managed to score at least five goals, with Watts scoring at least once in six of those same seven games. Watts is currently leading the Badgers in overall scoring with 18 goals on the season. The junior transfer student and Patty Kazmaier award winner has been a crucial aspect of the Badgers’ repeat success throughout this season. At this point in the season, Wisconsin leads the country in scoring by almost a goal per game, yet the top line isn’t just where the power is coming from. Watts, Sophie Shirley and Abby Roque have combined to score over half of the Badgers’ goals this season, but a highly impressive 15 others have chipped in at least once.If they are to come off a strong weekend at LaBahn Arena against Minnesota Duluth, the Badgers can go into their three week break knowing that while they’ve already achieved success this season, there is still more work to be done if they are to acquire a second straight national title. In order to finish out the season strong and as reigning champs of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, the Badgers must prove themselves once again against a tough schedule filled with ranked teams. Once they can prove themselves and come out on top, the Badgers have a shot at becoming national champions once again.last_img read more

Pochettino hails ‘fantastic’ Kane and Alli

first_imgBurnley, United Kingdom | AFP | Mauricio Pochettino saluted “fantastic” duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli after Tottenham revived their challenge for Champions League qualification with a 3-0 win at Burnley.Kane scored a hat-trick to take his total of Premier League goals in the calendar year to 36, equalling the competition record set by Alan Shearer with Blackburn in 1995.Alli played a rather more controversial role in proceedings, although he did end the match with two assists.He won a disputed penalty early in the game, shortly after receiving a yellow card for a dangerous challenge on Burnley defender Charlie Taylor, with many home fans believing it should have been a sending off.However, he did produce a sublime pass for Kane to complete his hat-trick with 12 minutes to go.Pochettino said that both men played a significant role in Tottenham’s first away league win since September 30, and is hopeful that they can continue to lift a side who had slipped to seventh place before the weekend.“Harry is so important. I have praised him over the three-and-a-half years I have been here,” Pochettino said.“He makes a contribution not only with goals but with his attitude and his professionalism. How he works on the pitch is fantastic. He’s a massive example for everyone.“I’m so happy for him, because not only have we achieved the three points, but he equalled Alan Shearer’s record.Kane and Alli“He needs one more to set a new record, and I think that’s a massive, massive achievement for an individual like him.”Alli has had a relatively disappointing personal season to date, with only three league goals to his name.The midfielder was criticised heavily a week ago for a bad challenge on Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne, for which he received a yellow card, while his early tackle on Taylor was another example of his temperamental side.Pochettino, though, said that referee Michael Oliver was correct both in only booking Alli and in awarding the early penalty.– Special player – “I think it was a yellow. I don’t think it was more than yellow. The penalty was a penalty,” he said.“I’m happy with his performance and contribution. He tried always. He was always in the game, trying to help the team. His contribution was fantastic.”The Tottenham manager is not worried that Alli’s reputation for getting into trouble on the pitch precedes him, and is certain he will rediscover his scoring touch.“It’s coming,” Pochettino said. “We always expect from Dele Alli that not only does he work, but he scores too. But we feel that’s coming.“He’s going to score and perform in the way that he did before.“He’s a special player. He is like he is. When everyone in this country praised him in the past two seasons, I think it was easy.“He’s still young, he’s 21. Because he’s so special in his character and the way he plays sometimes the crowd is focused on him.“Of course, we demand more. We are the first to demand more from him. But I think he’s in a good way. You can feel that Dele is recovering again all of the feelings from the past.”Burnley manager Sean Dyche acknowledged that his team did not capture the form that has lifted them into the Premier League’s top six this season.“You lick your wounds. They turned up and we didn’t quite. Overall, we have to be really happy where the club is at,” he said.“The best side won on the day. They’re a top-class side. They did the basics. They showed us respect by showing they would have to earn the win.“Harry Kane is a fantastic player. He must be up there with the best strikers in the world.”Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
