Laura Suero’s Late Goal Pushes Women’s Soccer Past Wisconsin 1-0

No. 16 Penn State returned to action on the road Sunday following a tough draw against No. 10 Minnesota. Wisconsin, United States Women’s National Team call-up Rose Lavallea, hosted the Nittany Lions. Penn State came away with its fourth victory in the last five games, beating the Badgers 1-0.

How It Happened

The game got off to a slow start without major chances on either side of the field. Penn State’s first shot came in the 23rd minute after Grace Fisk got on the end of a corner kick, but the attempt was saved by Wisconsin goalkeeper Caitlyn Clem.

The relatively quiet first half came to a close at 0-0. Wisconsin and Penn State had each generated three shots, but Clem and Amanda Dennis were only forced to make one save a piece.

The second half heated up quickly. Wisconsin had its chances to strike first, but Penn State came away with the first goal. Nickolette Driesse delivered a corner kick in the 72nd minute. Elizabeth Ball got on the end of the service and deflected to Laura Suero, who headed the ball into the top corner for the 1-0 lead.

After the goal, Wisconsin increased the pressure, hoping for an equalizer. Despite a number of shots, the Badgers couldn’t break through. Amanda Dennis came up with a number of saves down the stretch to preserve the shutout. Wisconsin midfielder Micaela Powers, who led the game with four shots, had her last attempt go wide before the final whistle blew.
