DULUTH, Minn. -- The Wisconsin women's hockey team was kept scoreless for a second game in a row, as Minnesota Duluth used a 1-0 decision on Sunday to complete the weekend sweep over the Badgers at AMSOIL Arena in Duluth, Minn.

The two scoreless games mark the first time since 2001 that Wisconsin has been shutout in back-to-back games.

With 1:48 left in the first period, Minnesota Duluth scored the lone goal of the game after the puck came out from the corner into the slot. Jessica Wong skated in unopposed and one-timed the loose puck into the top corner of the net.

Besides the goal by Wong, the Badgers' defense played well the rest of night. Alex Rigsby made 27 saves in the contest, as the Badgers were outshot 28-25.

Wisconsin's penalty-kill unit was also stellar, killing off a total of five penalties. However, UMD's penalty kill was just as effective, killing off three Badger power-play opportunities.

The Badgers started off the first period a bit sluggishly, being outshot 13-8. After giving up the goal, Wisconsin responded strongly, creating numerous quality chances on net.

Unfortunately, the Bulldogs were persistent in keeping the Badgers' shots on the perimeter of the ice. Kayla Black made 25 stops for UMD, but never had to make any saves off breakaways or shots from rebounds.

Wisconsin returns home after three-weeks on the road to start the season. The Badgers will open LaBahn Arena on Friday, Oct. 19, against Bemidji State at 7 p.m.
