UW Milwaukee falls to Iowa Cyclones
AMES, Iowa – The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee women conceded a goal in each half and could not overcome the deficit in falling to Iowa State 2-1 Sunday afternoon at ISU Soccer Complex.
The Panthers (1-5-1) dropped its fifth-straight game despite holding the momentum and the play throughout much of the contest.
“I thought we had an inconsistent performance today,” UWM head coach Greg Henschel said. “But, we were able to pick up some good notes and keep working forward and getting ready for conference play.”
Milwaukee dodged the shutout with just four seconds remaining, when Kelly Lewers finished off a header from Krissy Dorre. The play started on a bounding ball towards the ISU box. Dorre beat the keeper with her header and Lewers followed the play, navigating a pair of defenders to finish into the empty goal.
Jennifer Dominguez put the hosts up 1-0 on a floating shot that snuck under the cross bar to put ISU ahead in the 14th minute.
A header came out of the midfield and caught Milwaukee keeper Jamie Forbes at an in between point, Kaeli Flaska tracked the ball, got around Forbes and finished on an empty net. The shot was ISU’s first that was not within steps of outside the penalty area.
Forbes finished with six saves, while Maddie Jobe stopped four in goal for Iowa State. She subbed out in the 77th minute after a collision with UWM’s Hannah Kaul and Andrea Swanson picked up the final 13-plus minutes in the net.
The Panthers return to action next Saturday at 3 p.m., hosting Wright State in their Horizon League opener.
