MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The top-ranked Minnesota women’s hockey team beat Wisconsin 2-0 on Friday, extending its NCAA-record winning streak to 33 and grabbing sole possession of the NCAA mark for consecutive games without a loss or tie.

Hannah Brandt scored just 4:28 into the game and Mira Jalosuo added another goal at 18:02. Minnesota goaltender Noora Raty (23-0-0) had 25 saves in posting the shutout.

Minnesota’s streak began on Feb. 18, 2012, with a 5-2 win over North Dakota in the final regular season game of the year. The Gophers had shared the unbeaten streak of 32 games with Wisconsin, which did it twice: 28-0-4 from Nov. 25 to Oct. 14, 2007, and 30-0-2 from Dec. 4, 2010, to Oct. 14, 2011.
