Michigan men's soccer loses 2-1 to Wisconsin; EMU women win first game

By Staff

The Michigan men's soccer team outshot Wisconsin 23-6 on Sunday, but the Badgers capitalized on their limited scoring chances for a 2-1 win.

Tomislav Zadro and Josh Thiermann scored first-half goals for Wisconsin (6-4-2, 2-0-0 Big Ten) in front of 1,170 fans at U-M Soccer Stadium. Michigan converted on one of its 16 second-half shots, a Kofi Opare goal in the 60th minute.

"It was a great result, in a great stadium," Wisconsin coach John Trask told "We talk about how tough it is to win in the Big Ten, especially away from home. We will take the result and keep moving forward."

The win was the Badgers’ third all-time against Michigan and their first since the 2006 season.

The Wolverines (3-9-1, 1-2-0) had five shots in the final 11 minutes of the game, according to, but could not get the equalizer and suffered their ninth one-goal loss this season.

Michigan’s leading scorer in Big Ten play, sophomore Ezekiel Harris, missed the game after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season against Western Michigan last Wednesday.
