Women’s soccer: Badgers fall to Michigan in overtime, ending seven game winning streak

first_imgEven though the University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team managed to take the game into overtime, they would still fall to the Michigan Wolverines, ending their seven game winning streak.The leg of forward Reilly Martin, Michigan (5-2-4, 2-1-1 Big Ten) took down Wisconsin (8-2-0, 2-1-0 Big Ten) in the sixth minute of overtime. For the Badgers, this is their first loss of a dominant month-long stretch where they outscored opponents 14-2.The two teams exchanged goals relatively early in what became another defensive battle for the Badgers. Jada Dayne, a Michigan player who happens to be the daughter of Wisconsin football legend Ron Dayne, got the Wolverines off to an early head start with her first period strike on the assist from Katie Foug. Soon after the second period started, Dani Rhodes answered on a penalty kick for her sixth goal of the season.Women’s soccer: Wisconsin holds on to defeat Michigan State in overtimeThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer once again delivered in a clutch overtime situation during a 2-1 victory over the Read…Unfortunately for Wisconsin, once overtime began, something had to break in this defensive struggle. For her second goal of the season Reilly Martin sent the Badgers home with an impressive shot on a pass from mid fielder Sarah Stratigakis.On the goalkeeping end, Caitlyn Clem maintained a high level of play in a tough loss, notching four of six saves in the overtime game.  However, Michigan keeper Sarah Jackson proved herself today, only allowing one penalty shot goal with seven saves.Though Wisconsin has had success thus far in season, this loss is a reminder the Big Ten will not be an easy conference to succeed in. Including the Badgers, there are three Big Ten teams ranked in the top twelve of Division I.The Badgers play one of these teams, Rutgers, during their upcoming East Coast road trip as well as a competitive Maryland team.  The Scarlet Knights have yet to lose with a record of 8-0-2, notching them the No. 12 ranking in the United Soccer Coaches Poll. Casey Murphy will be the Badgers biggest challenge, allowing only one goal thus far this season.Before making their way to Piscataway, New Jersey, the Badgers will stop in College Park for a difficult matchup against Maryland. With a record of 7-2-1, the Terps will be another challenging obstacle for the Badger women as they continue conference play.After some close contests to begin the Big Ten season, the Badgers must maintain their focus as they prepare for the critical conference games ahead. Next up for the Badgers is two away games, the first of which is against Maryland Sept. 29.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)ExpandSAN FRANCISCO – Maybe it’s the stress of knowing he’s likely to be traded in the next six weeks.Maybe the unusually warm weather in San Francisco this weekend caused chafing.Or maybe Madison Bumgarner just wakes up angry when he knows he’s pitching against the Dodgers.It only took two batters to set him off Sunday afternoon. When Max Muncy crushed a solo home run in the first inning, paused briefly to admire its progress towards McCovey Cove and executed his standard bat drop with attitude, Bumgarner was in very quick order insulted, incensed and infuriated. The Giants ace stalked toward Muncy as he began running the bases, gesturing for him to do just that. He continued yelling at Muncy as he rounded first base, Muncy gesturing back, until home plate umpire Will Little stepped in front of Bumgarner and suggested he return to the pitcher’s mound.Nothing more came of the early confrontation – and nothing more happened offensively. Behind Walker Buehler’s seven scoreless innings and Muncy’s affront to Bumgarner’s sensibilities, the Dodgers beat the Giants 1-0.“He took exception to me watching the ball, I guess,” Muncy said. “He said, ‘You don’t watch the ball. You run.’ That’s what he told me. Truth of it is, it’s just a guy out there competing. He was upset he made a bad pitch, and that’s really all there was to it.”Oh, there was more to it than that. Muncy was asked how he responded to Bumgarner’s direction.“I told him ‘If you don’t want me to watch the ball, you can go in the ocean and get it,’” Muncy said. “I don’t even know if he heard it. As I was rounding the bases, I yelled it at him. He was yelling at me. We were kind of going back and forth and that was it. Just a couple guys competing.” Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start If Bumgarner heard Muncy’s response, he didn’t mention it after the game.“He just struck a pose and walked further than I liked,” Bumgarner said. “If you want to do that, do it. But I’m going to do what I want to do.”Bumgarner has never been one to “Let the Kids Play” and does not appear in MLB’s promotional campaign with that tag line. Twice – once in 2014 and again in 2016 – benches cleared when Bumgarner was offended by something Yasiel Puig had done. T-shirts with Bumgarner’s directive – “Don’t Look At Me” — commemorated the event.“I can’t even say it with a straight face, but the more I think about it, they should let the kids play,” Bumgarner said. “That’s what everybody’s saying. … but I can’t.“If they want to let everybody be themselves, let me be myself. That’s me. I’d just assume fight than walk or whatever. Just do your thing. I’ll do mine.”With the Giants at the bottom of the standings now, though, Bumgarner seems to need the Dodgers to really get fired up to do his thing. In three starts against them this season, he has allowed just two earned runs on 13 hits while striking out 17 in 19 innings. His ERA against the Dodgers is 0.95 – against the rest of baseball it is 4.63.While Bumgarner simmered, Buehler calmly cruised through the Giants’ lineup for seven innings, using 14 pitches or fewer to retire the side in each of the last five. He scattered five hits, striking out nine and was really only in danger once.The Giants put runners at the corners with one out in the sixth inning. With the infield playing double-play depth, Pablo Sandoval bounced a ground ball to Justin Turner who throw home to to get the lead runner. Two fly outs closed off that inning.Related Articles “The way Walker was throwing the ball, I decided if I got a ball hit at me I was probably going to go home and take the run instead of conceding the run and going for the double play,” Turner said.“He was throwing the ball so good. Instead of just conceding the run, give him a chance to keep going with a zero on the board.”Since stumbling against the New York Mets in his last May start (five runs in five innings), Buehler has allowed just one run on seven hits with 20 strikeouts in 15 innings over two starts.“When you’re online and on time, you can do a lot more with the ball,” Buehler said. “I think early in the year my bad throws were all kind of in the same place and my good throws were all in the same place and you can’t really command the four quadrants. Obviously watching our guys do that, you learn from that. I don’t know if that’s the emphasis but I know when I feel right I think I can do some things with the baseball. Now I feel pretty good.”Pedro Baez and Kenley Jansen finished off the shutout with a hitless inning each. Over his past six appearances, Jansen has faced 21 batters, struck out nine of them, gave up only two hits and no walks.
