UW-Oshkosh broke a scoreless contest with a pair of goals during the final 10 minutes of play to defeat the UW-Whitewater women's soccer team, 2-0, on Wednesday (Oct. 3) in Whitewater.
UW-Oshkosh (4-6-1, 1-1 WIAC) scored on its last two shots of the match, including Tory Schumann's first collegiate goal that gave the Titans a 1-0 lead in the 81st minute (80:29). Schumann scored when her 18-yard kick hit the crossbar and bounced into the net.
UW-Whitewater made a furious attempt to tie the match, but a shot on goal in the 86th minute was stopped by a UW-Oshkosh defender just before crossing the goal line. The ensuing UW-Whitewater shot off the rebound veered just wide of the goal.
UW-Oshkosh then capped the victory on Kylee Brown's second goal of the season with just two seconds (89:58) remaining.
UW-Whitewater (6-6-1, 0-2 WIAC), which suffered its second shutout defeat to UW-Oshkosh in three matches, dominated the first half by posting advantages of 13-2 in shots and 8-1 on corner kick opportunities. The Warhawks had a strong wind at their backs in the first half while the Titans had that same advantage in the second.
Both teams had two shots saved in the opening period, including UW-Whitewater kicks that were stopped by UW-Oshkosh goalkeeper Erin Toomey during the contest's 25th and 32nd minute. UW-Whitewater goalkeeper Nina Yonan blocked UW-Oshkosh shots by Mallory Knight in the 12th minute and Ashley Baalke in the 32nd.
Yonan added six more saves during the second half and Toomey two as UW-Oshkosh ended the session with advantages in shots (9-7) and shots on goal (8-3) while UW-Whitewater led in corner kicks (2-1).
UW-Whitewater received seven of its 20 overall shots from Anna Brodjian and three from Anna Boyd.
