The Wisconsin women\’s hockey team celebrates after beating Mercyhurst 5-0 to claim the NCAA title.[/media-credit]BOSTON (AP) — Jessie Vetter stopped 37 shots for an NCAA record 14th shutout of the season — and her second in a national championship game — and Wisconsin won its third women’s hockey title in four years on Sunday with a 5-0 victory over Mercyhurst.Vetter earned a second Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player award — she also won it with back-to-back shutouts in the 2006 tournament — to go with this year’s Patty Kazmaier Award as the top player in women’s college hockey.Angie Keseley had a goal and two assists, and Erika Lawler had three assists for the Badgers (34-2-5) to join Vetter as three-time national champions. Meghan Duggan had a goal and an assist and Brooke Ammerman and Malee Windmeier also scored for Wisconsin.Hillary Pattenden stopped 27 shots for Mercyhurst (31-6-0), which reached the Frozen Four for the first time; the other three teams in Boston all had NCAA title pedigrees.The Lakers had won 28 of their last 29 games, including a 5-4 victory over two-time champion Minnesota in the semifinals. Wisconsin advanced to the championship with a 5-1 victory over Minnesota-Duluth in a rematch of the last two title games.The teams played a scoreless first period, then Ammerman broke the tie with 14:32 left in the second period when she picked up a loose puck on the side of the net and backhanded it past Pattenden. With 11:12 left, Lawler faked a defender and slid the puck to Alycia Matthews, whose shot was tipped into the net by Duggan.Just 1:50 later, the Badgers made it 3-0 when Keseley and Lawler used some back-and-forth passing to get the goalie out of position. Windmeier ran the score to 4-0 early in the third period, and Lawler worked another give-and-go with Hilary Knight to make it 5-0.With two players — Lawler and Duggan — from Massachusetts and Knight from New Hampshire, the top-seeded Badgers managed to win the crowd’s affection from the underdog Lakers.Mercyhurst, a Catholic college in Erie, Pa., went undefeated in the four-team College Hockey America conference and beat St. Lawrence in the national quarterfinals. Forward Meghan Agosta, an unprecedented three-time finalist for the Kazmaier Award and an Olympic gold medalist for Canada in Turin, led the nation in goals and assists per game.But the Lakers, with 15 freshmen on the roster, couldn’t get past Vetter, even with a pair of power plays in the final three minutes.It was Vetter’s fourth Frozen Four shutout and the 38th of her career, also NCAA records.
AMES — An Iowa State University grain quality specialist, Charles Hurburgh says some growers are choosing to leave corn in the fields because the kernels’ moisture content is too high for safe storage.The late harvest and cold weather have strained the delivery system for the propane needed to dry the corn. Hurburgh says the colder weather will help farmers who are waiting to dry grain.“If the weather stays cold…without a lot of warm, humid days and so forth…it’s probably not going to be moldy. After standing a while, it’ll probably come out of the field at seventeen to eighteen percent moisture…somewhere in that area,” Hurburgh says. He says the corn will still be okay to harvest.“As long as the stalks are strong….and it’s not falling on the ground. So leaving it in the field is not an automatic loss,” Hurburgh says. He says the cold will also help those who are still waiting to dry corn that’s in bins.“There is 20 to 24 percent corn in places in bins at temperatures below 30 that will probably be okay for a month or two until this gas situation clears up and the corn can be dried and taken to wherever. The cold weather was a real benefit to us,” he says.The State Agriculture Secretary says the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is going to get the propane shippers and the pipeline representatives together this week to work on the delivery problems. He say they hope that will lead to an increase in the supply of propane this week and next.
