Badgers snare Tigers 2-1
The women's soccer team (3-0) struck quickly and effectively, defeating Missouri 2-1 Friday at the Nike Tiger Invitational in Columbia, Mo.
Freshman forward Taylor Walsh scored Wisconsin's first goal on an assist from junior midfielder/forward Amy Vermeulen just five minutes into the game. Vermeulen put up a goal of her own at 27:47, which was all the scoring Wisconsin needed.
"Taylor's early goal gave us tremendous momentum," head coach Dean Duerst said. "Quick scoring may not happen all the time, but we're certainly going after teams right away."
Missouri's Jennifer Nobis scored at 42:24 to cut Wisconsin's lead to one.

Junior forward Dan Brouxup scored the game-winner at 79:17. Hanson had three saves and two goals allowed while Evansville goaltender Corey Southers gave up one goal but had 12 saves.
