With a tying goal and then a goal for overtime success, Montreal Canadians prospered Cole Cofield to lead the University of Wisconsin Badgers to the NCAA Big Ten Final, with a 4-3 win over Penn State University, the Indianapolis at the Compton Family Ice Arena on Monday.
The small striker knocked on the entire door of the match, but to no avail. When his team needed it the most, however, the 2019 CH increased the first round pick, tying the score in the power play, with just six minutes left in control time.
In extra time Cofield played the hero again, escaping alone with Puk. To the delight of his teammates who came with him and jumped off the bench to celebrate, he was able to beat Oscar Atio between the pads.
This is Cofield’s 27th goal of the season.
The University of Wisconsin, which finished first at the end of the regular season, won the semi-final pass. The Badgers will face Golden Gophers University of Minnesota or Wolverine University of Michigan in Tuesday’s final.
