Women's Soccer

Senior forward Dani Rhodes scored Wisconsin's first goal Sunday night, in a dominant performance over in-state rivals Green Bay.

Wisconsin loses on the road to OSU to end the regular season

The Wisconsin Badgers women’s soccer team (6-2-3 Big Ten, 12-3-3 overall) concluded their regular season with a 2-1 loss on the road against Ohio State (6-2-3, 9-5-3). Both teams entered the game in good form with Wisconsin unbeaten in its previous seven games and the Buckeyes picking up only one loss over their last 10. Ohio State took the lead in only the ninth minute of the game when a low cross from senior midfielder Eleanor Gabriel found sophomore forward Marissa Birzon behind the Wisconsin back line. With a move taking her past the flying Jordyn Bloomer, Birzon found herself with an easy finish on an open net to put the Buckeyes in front.

Despite playing substantially fewer minutes than her fellow forwards, senior Emily Borgmann sits second on the team with four goals.

Late Spark: Borgmann embracing challenges of super-sub role in standout senior season

The No. 19 Wisconsin Badgers women’s soccer team (5-1-3 Big Ten, 11-2-3 overall) has once again qualified for the Big Ten tournament and has plans of qualifying for the NCAA tournament for the third consecutive season. Maybe it’s just a case of being a year older and wiser, but there is one more factor to Wisconsin’s elevated play this season: super-sub senior forward Emily Borgmann.

UW held at home to two scoreless draws

After 220 minutes of play in three days, the Wisconsin Badgers women’s soccer team (2-1-3 Big Ten, 8-2-3 overall) could not settle the score in their two home games as both games resulted in 0-0 draws that were not dull despite the scoreline. Wisconsin faced off with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights (3-0-2 Big Ten, 7-1-4 overall) Friday afternoon after the game was postponed from Thursday night.

Former Badger women's soccer player Genevieve Richard has traveled the world, but says she has experienced success in large part because of her time at UW.

The shot saved round the world: Richard thrives abroad thanks to UW experiences

LONDON — Geneviève Richard has just exited the water on a beach in France, and the wind is gusting audibly over the phone. She’s slightly out of breath, but happy, even though her team, Olympique de Marseille Féminin, lost its match just a day before. Even with her club toiling in last place of France’s top female soccer division, Richard has plenty to smile about these days: A professional career seemed out of reach not long ago. “I was doing all of my prerequisites for [a] pharmacy [degree], and I didn’t think about [soccer],” she said. But while Richard, a Quebec native, expected to depart Wisconsin with a degree, she may not have expected it would lead to and prepare her for a professional soccer career.

Sophomore defender Grace Douglas scored her first two goals of the season as UW dominated Toledo Friday night.

Wisconsin storms past Toledo in dominating 5-0 victory

The Badgers women’s soccer team find themselves trading below freezing temperatures at home for a little warmth and sunshine as they will be roadtripping down to pleasant Columbia, South Carolina to take on the No. 1-seed South Carolina Gamecocks in the second round of the NCAA women’s soccer tournament after handily beating the Toledo Rockets Friday night, 5-0. The game could be viewed as a story of two halves as the Badgers peppered Rockets goalkeeper Madison Perrin with 13 shots and five on goal compared to the Rockets’ two total shots and one on goal.
