MEQUON, Wis. – The Concordia University Wisconsin Women's Soccer team dropped another one-goal contest Sunday, falling 1-0 against UW-La Crosse. The Falcons and Eagles had to wait through one hour and twenty minute rain delay late in the second half, but the end result was another close setback for CUW.
