Posted on October 9th, 2019 by


LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team suffered a 2-0 loss at UW-La Crosse on Wednesday evening. The defeat drops the Gusties to 2-9 overall, while the Eagles improve to 8-4-1.

UW-La Crosse scored what proved to be the game-winner in the 38th minute with an unassisted goal. The Eagles outshot the Gusties 13-2 in the opening 45 minutes. The home team then added its second goal with just eight seconds remaining in the game.

La Crosse finished the contest with 19 shots compared to three from the Gusties. Ashley Becker (Sr., Farmington) played nearly 73 minutes in goal, allowing one score with six saves. Abby Goodno (So., Little Canada) played the final 17 minutes with one goal allowed as well.

”First half was a back and forth battle,” Head Coach Laura Burnett-Kurie said. “Each team had their share of looks. They scored directly off a corner, which caught us a little off guard. Second half we came at it with intensity and were the aggressors. It was great to see us play with such confidence and commit numbers in the attack. Page Cocchiarella and Lauren Johnson both had outstanding second halfs and it was great to see our depth coming off the bench.”

Gustavus returns to conference play 3:30 p.m. Saturday at Saint Benedict.
