ST. PAUL — Nic Kerdiles had a goal and two assists to help Wisconsin beat St. Cloud State 4-1 in the WCHA semifinals on Friday, the fifth straight win for the Badgers.
Joseph LaBate, John Ramage and Tyler Barnes also scored for the Badgers (21-12-7), who will play for the championship and the Broadmoor Trophy on Saturday against either Colorado College or Minnesota.
Seeded fourth in this year's tournament, the Badgers haven't won the conference title game since 1998.
