MORNING BRIEFING: Milwaukee beats up on Big Ten foes

MOST COMMENTED

For the second time in less than a week, Wisconsin-Milwaukee beat a Big Ten opponent.

Nicole Sperl scored on a penalty kick in the 88th minute to give the Panthers a 4-3 win over Ohio State in a wild game in Milwaukee.

The goal came just 18 seconds after Ashley Bowyer had evened the score on a free kick.

The aggressive Panthers, coming off a 3-0 win over Wisconsin, sent seven shots toward the Ohio State net in the game's first 16 minutes but only broke through in the 39th minute when Laurel Ragalie scored off an assist from Keara Thompson.

Thompson put UWM ahead 2-0 in the 51st minute and Sarah Hagen scored her third goal of the season to put the Panthers ahead 3-1.

ANOTHER WILD ONE. Long Beach State edged Hawaii, 4-3, in the first game of the OHANA Hotels & Resorts No Ka Oi. The Rainbow Wahine carried a 3-1 lead into the 75th minute, but the 49ers scored two goals in an 11-minute span to force overtime, where they won on Kim Silos' goal, her second of the game.


MILES GET SHOT. With star keeper Chantel Jones redshirting this fall while she plays for the U.S. under-20 national team, senior Celeste Miles is finally getting a shot to start in goal for Virginia.

Virginia coach Steve Swanson is high on Miles.

"I'm very excited for her," Swanson told the daily Progress. "I think it's a tremendous opportunity for her - something she's worked awfully hard for. She's just an exceptional leader and works her tail off over the course of three years. I think the team has a lot of confidence in her. It's obviously hard to lose someone like Chantel, but we couldn't ask for someone better waiting in the wings than Celeste."

Miles shut out Loyola (Md.), 4-0, in the Cavs' opener.
