The University of Wisconsin–Stout soccer team got the season started on the right foot, taking a 2-0 game over St. Mary’s University on Sept. 3. Sophomore Lauren Kizlik of Hammond scored both UW–Stout goals, with her sister Jenna, a junior, assisting on the first one. The Blue Devils outshot St. Mary’s 18-5 on the afternoon as goalie Paige Meyer, a junior from Beldenville, Wis, only had to make two saves.
However, the Blue Devils home opener did not go as smoothly, as UW–Stout was handed a 2-0 loss against the Blazers of St. Benedict College. A hard fought contest throughout, the Blue Devils ended up taking one more shot, 10-9, than the Blazers, but a couple of unlucky bounces sealed their fate.
The Blue Devils hope to get back on the right track against Bethel University in St. Paul, Minn. on Sept. 9 before heading to Mequon, Wis. for a game against Concordia University on Sept. 13.
