O'Brien Cup Playoffs[edit | edit source]
Format[edit | edit source]
All four teams participate in the conference tournament. The semifinals are first team to three points with mini game tie-breaker. The final is a single game held at the rink of the higher seeded team. The tournament does not earn an automatic bid to the 2018 NCAA Division III Women's Ice Hockey Tournament, as the conference does not have enough members to earn an automatic bid to the tournament.
Semifinals[edit | edit source]
- Wisconsin-River Falls Falcons defeated Wisconsin-Stevens Point Pointers 4 points to none
- Wisconsin-Eau Claire Blugolds defeated Wisconsin-Superior Yellowjackets 4 points to none
