Tatum Skaggs is an assassin. 

For the second-straight day, Skaggs netted the game-winning goal in overtime, this time helping Ohio State capture the WCHA championship with a 1-0 victory over Wisconsin in Minneapolis. 

Skaggs vaulted the Buckeyes into the title game with an overtime goal against Minnesota on Saturday.

Goalie Andrea Braendli pitched the shutout to record her 20th win of the season as the Buckeyes claimed the title. 

The win gives Ohio State its first-ever WCHA title.

Now, the Buckeyes continue on to the NCAA Tournament, where they are set for a rematch with Minnesota in the quarterfinals. That game will be played at Minnesota at 5 p.m. Saturday.
