SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Two overtimes were not enough for either Iowa or No. 12 Wisconsin to find the back of the goal on Wednesday in Madison, and the game ended in a 0-0 double overtime tie.

The Hawkeyes did not do much offensively after a lively first half that saw the Badgers goalkeeper make 3 saves.

They were not able to keep the pressure up on offense after that, however, and only registered four shots in the final 65 minutes of play. To make matters worse, none of those four were on goal.

Wisconsin, on the other hand, kept Iowa junior goalkeeper Hannah Clark very busy. The second-highest scoring team in the Big Ten forced Clark to make 6 saves throughout the game.

Iowa’s defense as a whole did a pretty good job and kept Wisconsin away from the goal — despite the 18-8 advantage that the Badgers had in total shots taken.

Neither team seemed much in the mood to substitute — Iowa had eight players play the entire game, and Wisconsin had 10 players play over 100 minutes.

With the tie, the Black and Gold now have a record of 9-4-1, 4-3-1 mark in conference play.

Wisconsin is now 11-2-1, 5-2-1 in the Big Ten.

The Hawks will be idle until Oct. 17, when they will host Indiana.

“Wisconsin is a great team,” assistant coach Julie Hanley said. “As a staff we are prod of our group, we showed a lot of character today and really gave everything we had as a team.”
