The Blugolds started off strong as they took four of the first five shots and continued to out-shoot the Falcons in the first half.

However, it wasn't until the 64th minute that a team would score to break the scoreless tie. Mercedes Wilson (Fr.-Dousman, WI/Kettle Moraine) scored her third goal on the year and would put the Blugolds in front for the rest of the game.

The Blugolds will wrap up their regular season on Saturday, as they travel to UW – Stout for a 2 p.m. match. Follow all the action live at
