MILWAUKEE – After opening the season with a rare 0-0 double overtime draw against Kalamazoo on Friday afternoon, the MSOE women's soccer team was looking to kickstart their offense against the visiting University of Chicago Maroons. Unfortunately, the Raiders are still looking for that offensive spark, having been shutout for the second straight day at Viets Field on Saturday.
Uni. Of Chicago – 6
MSOE - 0
HOW IT HAPPENED
University of Chicago (1-0) got the scoring started early in this one, netting two goals before the contest hit the 8:00 mark. While the Raiders defense was able to recover and prevent another tally until the second half, they still couldn't figure out a way to create some offense. MSOE (0-1-1) only got one shot off during the first half, which pales in comparison to the Maroons 12.
The second half was unfortunately much of the same. The Red & White managed to only get two shots off during the last 45 minutes, and never got a shot on goal. Meanwhile, the Maroons scored three goals in a five-minute span and added another with just under 15 minutes left in the match to ice the contest. Chicago ended up with 29 total shots as they force the Raiders to open the season without a win in their first two attempts.
Out of the three-game history between the two teams, the Raiders have yet to come out on the winning end in any contest. They have now been outscored by the Maroons 16-1 dating back to 2016.
WHO'S ON DECK
The team will try and snap their early two game skid against UW-Whitewater on Wednesday. Their first road game of the season will kick off at 7:00 pm.
