The Wisconsin women's soccer team ended its season with a 1-0 heartbreaker to No. 2 Notre Dame in the second round of the NCAA Tournament Sunday in South Bend, Ind.
Although the Fighting Irish outshot Wisconsin 18-1, the Badgers, behind freshman netminder Lynn Murray, held on for 89 minutes. At 89:07, Notre Dame sophomore midfielder Jill Krivacek headed a corner kick from junior forward Katie Thorlakson into the net for the game-winner. Notre Dame (21-1-1) will face Connecticut later this week.
"Our team stuck to our game play well, although we wanted more forward play," Wisconsin coach Dean Duerst said. "I thought it was a classic game of our strong defense against their talented offense."
Murray collected five saves while junior midfielder Marisa Brown tallied UW's only shot.
Wisconsin ended its season with a 16-6-1 record, the Badgers' best record since the 2000 squad finished 16-7-1.
