Michigan knocks Badgers out of Big Ten Tournament
Michigan forward Melissa Dobbyn scored a goal at 81:51 to put the Wisconsin women's soccer team out of the Big Ten Tournament Thursday in Columbus. Michigan defeated in a 1-0 heartbreaker, the second straight year the Wolverines have pushed the Badgers out of the Big Ten Tournament. Last year, Michigan won 1-0.
Sophomore midfielder Kara Kabellis led the Badgers (15-5-1 overall) with three shots on goal but Michigan out-shot the Badgers 15-13 in the loss. Freshman goaltender Lynn Murray collected three saves while Michigan netminder Megan Tuura had two.
"It was an intense game, and I'm proud of the way our team played," head coach Dean Duerst said. "It was frustrating that we didn't convert all the opportunities we had, but I'm still happy with how we competed."
The Badgers will learn next weekend whether they have been selected for the NCAA Tournament.
