UW Hockey upset by Nebraska-Omaha


OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Alex Hudson and Joey Martin had a goal and assist each to lead Nebraska-Omaha to a 4-1 win over Wisconsin on Friday.

Jordy Murray's goal late in the first period was all the Badgers (19-9-3, 11-8-2 WCHA) could manage against Mavericks' goalie John Faulkner.

Faulkner made 31 saves, including 16 in the third period. Both teams had 32 shots on goal.

Nebraska-Omaha (17-10-2, 13-6-2) responded to Murray's goal with four straight, beginning with Martin's power-play goal 1:21 into the second. Johnnie Searfoss and Rich Purslow added goals for Wisconsin.

Scott Gudmandson made 28 saves for the Badgers.
