Badgers win on Rhodes’ penalty shot

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - BASEBALL -

All day the Wis­con­sin’s women’s soccer team mis­fired at Min­nesota’s net. The Badgers had 17 shots on goal through 90 min­utes of reg­u­la­tion time but had noth­ing to show for it.

Over­time was a dif­fer­ent story.

Dani Rhodes’ penalty kick nearly six min­utes into the ex­tra ses­sion gave Wis­con­sin a 1-0 vic­tory in its Big Ten opener in Madi­son.

The Badgers (7-1, 1-0) out­shot the un­der­dog Go­phers, (4-3, 0-1), 9-2, in the first half and, 8-4, in the sec­ond half but couldn’t push a shot past Min­nesota goal­keeper Kailee Sharp un­til Rhodes’ gamewin­ner.

The penalty op­por­tu­nity was the re­sult of a foul on Min­nesota’s Tori Bur­nett just sec­onds af­ter a shot by UW’s Becca Har­ri­son was blocked.

Wis­con­sin goalie Cait­lyn Klemm earned the shutout with four saves.


Vil­lanova 3, Mar­quette 1: Three unan­swered goals by Vi­lanova ru­ined Mar­quette’s Big East soccer opener on Saturday af­ter­noon.

Theo Quartey scored a pair of goals for the Wild­cats, in­clud­ing the fi­nal tally in the 85th minute

Mar­quette (1-5-1, 0-1) had a brief 1-0 ad­van­tage when Grant Owens scored his sec­ond goal of the sea­son in the 18th minute.

How­ever, Quartey tal­lied the equal­izer in the

33rd minute, and Jack Gil­liam put the Wild­cats (4-3, 1-0) ahead with 15 min­utes to play in the sec­ond half. Bel­mont 2, UW Mil­wau­kee 1: Ranked first in the coun­try in shots on goal com­ing into the game, the Pan­thers’ (23-2, 0-1) of­fense didn’t get go­ing un­til late. Sean Reynolds’ goal in the 69th minute pro­vided hope, but the two-goal deficit was too much to over­come.


Michi­gan 3, UW-Mil­wau­kee 0: The Pan­thers (7-6) played well against the Wolver­ines but came up short against the Big Ten foe, 25-22, 25-19, 25-17.

Caitlin Schultz had 13 kills to lead the Pan­thers and Jenn Dore had 31 as­sists.
