Box Score

The Yellowjackets may have struck first at the 10:22 mark of the first period, but Courtney Wittig (Sr. - Green Bay, WI/Bay Port) wouldn't let the lead last as she scored her 15th goal of the season just ten seconds later.

In the second, Morgan Zirbel (So-Green Bay, WI/Ashwaubenon) would put the Blugolds ahead with a goal at 15:24 and Eau Claire would never look back.

The third period was all Blugolds, as Taylor Treu (So. – Wausau, WI/West) and Holly Turnbull (Sr-Hayward, WI) each tallied goals to secure their second WIAC win. Treu's goal was her first of her career while Turnbull notched her fifth of the season.
