Harvey Party: All-American scores overtime winner to lead UW to NCAA title game

Ohio State

DULUTH, Minn. – A day after earning second-team All-America honors, Wisconsin women’s hockey freshman Caroline Harvey showed the country why, when she scored the overtime game-winning goal to lead UW to a 3-2 win over Minnesota in the semifinal of the 2023 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four on Friday night at AMSOIL Arena. 

The second ever Wisconsin (28-10-2) freshman to earn All-America honors, Harvey went top shelf on Minnesota (30-6-3) netminder Skylar Vetter with 3:13 left in overtime to lift UW to its ninth NCAA championship game appearance. 

The Gophers grabbed the lead just 3:23 into the game and took a 1-0 lead into the first intermission.

The Badgers dominated most of the second period, outshooting the Golden Gophers 17-7, but were unable to find the back of the net. 

Coming off a strong second period, Laila Edwards got the Badgers on the board just past the midpoint of the third frame, before Sophie Shirley grabbed UW the lead less than a minute later. 

Minnesota tied up the game with just 1:11 to go in the third period to force overtime. 

After 16:47 of back and forth overtime play, Harvey went top-down to call the game. 

Cami Kronish stopped 37 of the shots she faced for her 20th win of the season and third of the NCAA tournament.
