An early goal by Michigan hurt the women's soccer team, as they fell 2-0 to the Wolverines Friday in Ann Arbor. The Badgers (1-2-0 Big Ten, 5-4-1 overall) have been shut out in two consecutive games.

 

Wisconsin freshman Kristin Sonderman replaced freshman Stefani Szczechowski in the net, as Szczechowski picked up a red card against Purdue and was ineligible to start.

 

Michigan sophomore forward Katie Kramer took an assist from senior forward Stephanie Chavez and senior midfielder Erika Kleinholz and fired a short that got past Sonderman for a goal less than a minute into the game. As in the Purdue game last weekend, Wisconsin did not respond to the game-winning goal, although the Badgers held a 14-9 advantage in shots. With the goal, Michigan (1-1-1 Big Ten, 2-4-3 overall) went into a scoring drought that lasted most of the game. At 87:06, junior forward Kate Morgan took a shot past Sonderman for the second goal. Sophomore forward Therese Heaton was credited with the assist.

 

Sonderman made two saves while Wolverine freshman goaltender Megan Tuura had four. The Badgers continue their Michigan road trip with a game against Michigan State Sunday.
