ST. PAUL, Minn. (Blugolds.com) — The UW-Eau Claire women's soccer team is in a funk. After winning seven straight games, they have now lost three in a row, all by a score of 1-0. The latest shutout loss came at the hands of St. Thomas (Minn.) on Wednesday evening.
The Blugolds held the edge in shots on goal, 8-3, but the Tommies were able to capitalize in the 20th minute for the only goal in the game.
Nina Behrenbrinker (Jr.-St. Paul, Minn./Cretin-Derham Hall) made three saves in the loss.
The Blugolds are now 8-7-1 this year and 2-6-0 on the road. They will be happy to return home on Sunday, where they are 8-1-1 this year, to play host to Wartburg (Iowa) at 2 p.m. Sunday is also senior day to recognize the 2012 seniors.
There will be an alumni game at Bollinger Field on Saturday at 1 p.m. for the former Blugold players.
