Out of all the University of Wisconsin-Stout sports teams, volleyball seemed to have the best results this past weekend. The Blue Devils travelled to Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a two-day invitational tournament. The first day Stout was unable to beat the hosting team, Coe College, and lost 1-3. Stout battled the next day though and came out with two wins against teams University of Dubuque and Luther College. Both wins were 3-2 sets.  Volleyball will wrap up their conference game this week, on Friday, October 30, and Saturday, October 31, against UW-Oshkosh and UW-Stevens Point respectively.

The women’s soccer team and football both hosted games this weekend, but were not able to find as much success as the volleyball team. On Saturday, the football and soccer team were both defeated at home field. The women’s soccer game ended as a 4-1 loss against University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. Although the scoreboard suggested otherwise, it was a tighter game than it appeared. Unfortunately, Stout picked the wrong day to not show up and play. Jenna Kizlik of Hammond, Wis., scored the lone goal from some ways out. Football capitalized more on their scoring chances than the soccer team, but still ended up short against University of Wisconsin- River Falls. The final score of the game was 54-48. Together, the Falcons and Blue Devils collaborated together for a total offensive yardage for over 1,000 yards. If you missed the action, don’t worryThe football team will be hosting another conference game November 7th.

On Sunday, the soccer team struggled again to find the back of the net against University of Minnesota-Morris. Despite nearly controlling all of the game and possession, Stout did not finish well. At the end of the game, Stout tallied 36 shots while University of Minnesota-Morris only managed to take 5. The game went into overtime for a golden goal decider. It was only fitting that senior forward Addy Maher scored the game winning goal on Senior Day. Maher received a cross from freshman Sydney Kasper, and ended the game when she slotted the ball past the University of Minnesota-Morris keeper. Stout Soccer will be ending their regular season on Wednesday, October 28 when they travel to University of Wisconsin-Superior.
