A mock-up of a shot by Daryl Watts knocked Bemidji State third-string goalkeeper Abby Thompson into the ice.

From there, it ended up being so many Watts shots: in the top corner of the net.

Watts scored her second hat-trick in 71 games with the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team with that goal, the third of her second period in the top-ranked Badgers’ 8-1 romp against the Beavers at Laban Arena on Sunday.

This was a major change from Saturday’s 0–0 clash between the teams, when UW recorded 56 shots without scoring.

“We really wanted to get more traffic,” Watts said. “And I think there was more of an appetite than just burying one through the net.”

Four points in the second period pushed fifth-year senior Watts into sole right to sixth on NCAA women’s hockey’s all-time scoring list with 266. His three goals propelled him to eighth place with 119.

“The girl has definitely got talent,” said Badgers senior forward Caitlin Schneider, who scored twice. “I am impressed every day by what she does. She works hard so she deserves it. We all are really proud of her and supporting her. What she has done in women’s hockey is a lot. is incredible.”

Watts’ three goals were a display of his talent and reminded him of the danger that opposing teams face in giving him the shortest spot.
