Friday, Aug. 17
Engelmann Stadium (Milwaukee, Wis.)
Jamie Forbes made eight saves for shutout, including a couple big saves to maintain her 21st career clean sheet.
Some notable performances from Kelly Lewers, Helen Steinhauser and Demi Price. I was impressed by Lewers fitness and edge on the field. Steinhauser was everywhere in the midfield and played great. Price coming on seemed like a turning point, giving the Panthers confidence and more energy.
Six players played all 110 minutes (Forbes, Bestwina, Scott, Kaul, Condon, Steinhauser and Lewers) ... UWM now has eight results (2 wins, 6 draws) in 34 all-time games against ranked opponents ... this was the first meeting between the Panthers and SC, while Milwaukee is now 4-6-3 all-time against SEC teams ... the shutout was Forbes' 21st career clean sheet, second-most in school history ... Bestwina and O'Donnell made their first collegiate starts
Iron Woman Watch (Played every minute this season) 90 minutes
Forbes, Bestwina, Scott, Kaul, Condon, Steinhauser and Lewers
