PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — An early goal by Bianca Mahoney stood up as the game winner as Wis.-Platteville handed the Simpson women's soccer team a tough, 1-0 loss Sunday.
Mahoney found the back of the net in the 20th minute and Simpson couldn't equalize as the Pioneers (1-2) earned their first win of the season.
The Storm (0-3) had an opportunity mid-way through the first half when Victoria Jordan rifled a shot off the crossbar that was cleared by the Pioneer back line. Jordan provided pressure again in the 34th minute with a header that was cleared off the post by the Platteville defense.
Riley Adams made three saves in goal for the Storm.
"We fell short today because we couldn't' capitalize on the opportunities we created. This young team is gaining quality experience each match and I'm hoping to see the improvements throughout the season." — head coach Jill Serafino
The Storm return home to Buxton Stadium on Tuesday, Sept. 12 to face Monmouth (Ill.). The Fighting Scots (3-1) are coming off a 6-2 win over Principia on Saturday. Start time is set for 7 p.m.
