Women’s soccer: Northwestern hands Wisconsin surprising 2-0 loss

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (10-4-2, 4-3-2 Big Ten) was unable to put up any points Sunday against conference rival Northwestern (8-6-2, 5-3-1 Big Ten).In what was a quiet contest for the first 37 minutes of play, Northwestern surged before half to score two goals.  Unfortunately for the Badgers, they were unable to match this offensive output in the remaining minutes.Wisconsin women’s soccer fights the Illini, walks away with a 1-0 victoryThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team is back on track after defeating the Illinois Fighting Illini on Friday night Read…Mckenna Agnotti scored the first of the two goals for the Wildcats on a strong shot from the left side of the field, assisted by both Brenna Lovera and Kim Jerantowski.  The latter was finished less than three minutes later by Marisa Viggiano on a free kick put-in.Wisconsin was able to stay competitive in the shot count with their opponents, attempting five shots on goal to Northwestern’s six.  However, the execution just was simply absent on both sides of the field for the Badgers.Goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem was unable to match her cousin Lauren’s performance in the game. Caitlyn’s .667 save percentage on the day was below her average and gave the Badgers little chance with the stagnant offense they displayed Sunday.On the other hand, Lauren Clem of Northwestern made all five of her saves, leaving a goose egg in the Badger’s box score. Lauren appears to be hitting her stride for the Wildcats, notching her second straight shutout in the home win.While the Badgers once again went with a three forward rotation, it was ultimately unsuccessful.  Lauren Rice and Cameron Murtha were the only strikers to have shots on goal, with two and one respectively.Looking forward, the Badgers hopes for the Big Ten tournament appear to be darkening.  This loss gives Northwestern a lead in the conference standings, where Wisconsin places sixth.

Mitchell Trubisky injury update: Bears QB has dislocated left shoulder, report says

first_img Ezekiel Elliott says Cowboys offense ‘didn’t do our jobs’ in loss to Saints “That’s why Chase is here,” Nagy said. “We’ll prepare for both guys, and I’ll know more (later). Again, our game plan is not going to change a whole lot. If Chase is the guy, we’re going to do things that Chase does well. If it’s Mitch, then we’ll continue to keep doing things with him. I’ll never get to a point where I’m frozen because I don’t know what to do. We’ll just keep growing.”ESPN reported Trubisky had an MRI exam Monday that revealed a dislocated left shoulder with a slight labrum tear. However, it’s not expected to require surgery. Rams’ Todd Gurley calls Thursday games ‘dumbest thing ever’ Chicago lost Mitchell Trubisky in Week 4, but the team doesn’t think he’s lost for the year.Bears coach Matt Nagy doesn’t believe the quarterback’s left (non-throwing) shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s 16-6 win over the Vikings will be season-ending, but he said he will provide more information as it becomes available over the next few days. “I haven’t found out a whole lot other than it’s his shoulder, so I’ll know more here probably the next day or two,” Nagy told reporters after the game. “Hopefully a day. We’ll see how all that goes, but it’s unfortunate.”Nagy couldn’t confirm if the shoulder was dislocated or broken, but added the injury is “frustrating,” considering Trubisky still is trying to find his rhythm with the offense. Should Trubisky be sidelined for an extended period, the team will once again turn to backup quarterback Chase Daniel.
