ARLINGTON, Va. - Four different Badgers scored to lead the No. 1 Wisconsin women's hockey team to a 4-2 win over Boston University on Saturday in the D1 in D.C. tournament at the Kettler Capitals IcePlex.

Wisconsin (17-1-0) fell behind 1-0 32 seconds into the game as the BU's Victoria Bach (5-7-2) capitalized on a UW turnover and scored on the ensuing rush.

But UW battled back, as senior co-captain Baylee Wellhausen netted her fourth of the year to even the game at 1-1 with 15 minutes left in the first.

Ten minutes later, junior Mikaela Gardner lit the lamp, launching a shot from the top of the left circle past BU netminder Corrine Schroeder to tally her fifth of the year.

After a scoreless second, sophomore Alexis Mauermann launched a rocket into the top corner of the net after junior Maddie Rowe forced a BU turnover to give UW a 3-1 lead.

However, Bach scored her second of the game with just over five minutes to go in the third to make it a one-goal game.

Senior co-captain Claudia Kepler gave UW its two-goal lead back, taking a feed from Abby Roque and firing the puck home for her 10th goal of the year with just over three minutes to go to put the game out of reach.

Three notes of the game:

- UW outshot BU 35-25, marking the 17th time this year UW has outshot its opponent.

- Kristen Campbell saved 23 of the 25 shots she faced to improve to 17-1-0 during her UW career

- Roque ended the game with two assists and now has a team-leading 22 points on the year.

Straight from the rink:

UW head coach Mark Johnson
On the overall game:

"Today's game, both teams were coming on short rest. At certain times of the game we played well, and at other times we defended well. (Boston University) was a good team and they were coached well. We found a way to win, which was the most important thing."

Senior forward Claudia Kepler
On responding to Friday's loss:

"It was great to see us come back. I think we all worked very hard and we were doing the little things to get the puck in the net."

On balanced offense:
"It just shows our depth, and that at any moment anyone can score. When we put our heads together to play as a team, we'll win."

Sophomore forward Alexis Mauermann
On responding to Friday's loss:

"I think today's game went pretty well for us. Yesterday's loss really built us up for today's win. We didn't take that lightly, and I think coming out today we definitely proved ourselves. I think we played well and did a lot of good things."

On her goal:
"Basically we were just coming off the bench and Maddie Rowe was forechecking pretty hard and hit the puck with her stick. Then one of their girls ended up falling down and tipping it over and I found a little open spot in the net and got it through."

Up next:

The Badgers head home for a two-game series against Minnesota Duluth at LaBahn Arena on Dec. 1 and 2.
