Northeastern Falls In Overtime To Wisconsin, 4-3, In Battle At The Burgh Title Game

CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa.- Despite a career-high 51 saves from goaltender Aerin Frankel, the No. 3 Northeastern women's hockey team fell, 4-3 in overtime to No. 1 Wisconsin in the Battle at the Burgh championship game at the Lemieux Sports Complex on Sunday evening.
