MEQUON, Wis. – Sometimes it's a 45-minutes half that spoils the 90-minute game. Women's soccer allowed CUW to score two unanswered first half goals which made the difference when the final horn sounded on the Raiders 4-2 defeat on the road on Wednesday afternoon.
MSOE – 2
Concordia Wisconsin – 4
HOW IT HAPPENED
In a role reversal, MSOE (9-5-2, 6-2-1 NACC) were the ones that got off to a bad start in this afternoon's ballgame. Having scored quickly to open contests as of late, it was Concordia Wisconsin (13-4, 9-2 NACC) that got the upper hand when they scored just over three minutes into the match. The Falcons added another tally to the scoreboard on a pass 10 yards out to end the first half scoring at 18:06. The Raiders weren't phased by being down by a pair at halftime and quickly wiped away that deficit. Brooke Zidek scored from such a bad angle to get the Red & White on the board it left the CUW defense wondering how it could have possibly gone in. MSOE scored again, this time with Caitie LeVasseur finding the back of the net to tie the game at 2-2 just six minutes later. As quickly as things swung the Raiders way, it went right back to the Falcons. CUW got the lead back just 17 seconds after LeVasseur's goal and would ice the game with another one at the 77' mark to hand the Red & White just their second loss of the conference season 4-2.
- MSOE is now 8-17 against the Falcons. However, this was the first game that saw the Raiders falling to them since 2015
- Freshman Caitie LeVasseur has now registered at least one goal in her last four matches.
WHO'S ON DECK
The Raiders will continue to jockey for playoff positioning when they take on Alverno on Friday. The Red & White and the Inferno will attempt to play their rescheduled game from two weeks ago starting at 3:30 pm on Alverno's campus.
