Women’s Soccer erupts at Edgewood

MADISON, Wis. – The Falcons proved to be too much for the Eagles of Edgewood on Wednesday night as the Blue and White drummed the Eagles to the tune of a 10-0 victory. CUW stays perched atop the NACC standings at 7-0 and improve to 11-1-0 on the year. Wednesday marked the third time this season that the Falcons scored 10 or more goals.

"This was another great team effort," said head coach Ryan Middendorf. "Our players in the backline have been so impressive all season. Kaeley made a remarkable save at 2-0 which staggered the momentum that Edgewood had begun to build. Our attack has really started to open in the last few matches. We finished some great goals today and it is really exciting to watch them continue to improve. This group really pushes each other to get better collectively each time that they step on the field together."

In the 10th minute, freshman Selena Esten (Cedarburg, Wis.) broke open the floodgates on a header off passes from junior Alexandra Tomich (Mission Viejo, Calif.) and sophomore Kylie Haarmann (Statesville, N.C.).

Three minutes later, junior Allison McElwee (Laramie, Wyo.) tapped in a rebound of a shot from freshman Karoline Haugland (Bergen, Norway).
