Women’s soccer falls to UW-Stout

Jon Mays

The Lawrence University women’s soccer team dropped a non-conference decision to the University of Wisconsin-Stout last Saturday, Sept. 25.
Senior Sarah Ehlinger scored the lone goal for the Vikings, who dropped to 3-5 on the season. Ehlinger scored her goal in the 17th minute to tie the game at a goal apiece, as the Blue Devils had scored early in the game.
Grace Salwasser scored what would prove to be the winning goal for Stout shortly before halftime. Stout added another goal in the second half to push their lead to 3-1, which held up as the final score.
About the game, Ehlinger said, “It’s a great feeling to score a goal, but winning? I would take winning a game over scoring a goal any day. Hopefully we can get back on track in our next game.”
Ehlinger is now tied with junior Mallory Koura for the team lead in goals with five. Koula, who scored a hat trick against Beloit earlier this year, and Ehlinger are also top on the team in assists with four and three respectively.
The Vikings faced Edgewood College on Wednesday then head out of state to take on Grinnell and Knox this weekend in two conference matches.
