SCU Edged by Wisconsin In Soccer Opener
IRVINE, Calif. – On what was ruled an own goal, Santa Clara lost to Wisconsin 2-1 in the season-opener for both teams Saturday night in Irvine.
On the SCU end line, Badger forward Chris Prince sent a ball towards the front of the Broncos' net, which ricocheted off Mykell Bates and rolled inside the right post.
Santa Clara (0-1) responded with eight shots in the second half – compared to none by UW. It was Fitschen breaking through with nine minutes left, tying the match and putting the Broncos in a position to win before the own goal.
