Badger Bits

Women's soccer splits weekend

The Wisconsin women's soccer team broke out of its Big Ten scoring slump and came out victorious in its opening weekend contest against the Iowa Hawkeyes, 3-1, but could not stop the Illinois Fighting Illini Sunday, losing 2-1. 




UW freshman forward Amy Vermeulen got the first goal for the Badgers in conference play. Three minutes later, Vermeulen scored the game winner on a successful header in front of the net. 




Sunday, Illinois and UW were tied at one, when midfielder Tara Schuling provided the game winner in the 75th minute.

Men's soccer falls twice

The Wisconsin men's soccer team continued its slide as it dropped a nonconference contest to UW-Milwaukee, 3-1 and its opening Big Ten game on the road at Penn State, 2-0. 




Senior forward Dominic DaPra notched his Big Ten-leading 11th goal at Milwaukee, but it would not be enough as UWM regained its two-goal lead in the 55th minute of play, stopping the Badgers' momentum. 




In the Sunday affair, UW was in trouble again as the 19th-ranked Nittany Lions outshot them 14-3. The Badgers were able to stay in the contest due to the play of goalkeeper Moriba Atiba Baker. 




Wisconsin returns home this week to host sixth-ranked Indiana Oct. 12.
