The Wisconsin men's soccer team ended a seven-game losing streak with a 3-0 win over Marquette Wednesday night in Madison. Sophomore midfielder/forward Christopher Ede scored Wisconsin's second and third goals, the first two goals of his career, to secure the win. Wisconsin moves to 5-9 overall, while Marquette slips to 5-7-1.
Wisconsin scored its first goal on a penalty kick by redshirt freshman forward Victor Diaz early in the first period. Ede's goals came late in the second period, just six minutes apart, on assists from sophomore midfielder/forward B.J. Goodman, sophomore midfielder Nick Caronna and junior forward Matthew Jelacic.
"It's nice to get the win and we put a little icing on it with the third goal," coach Jeff Rohrman said. "Chris has been finishing things off well all week and he put in two nice goals for us. I thought it was a real collective effort tonight."
In his third game this season, UW sophomore goaltender Mike Hood collected four saves, as did Marquette's Steven Grow.
