MORNING BRIEFING: Hagen is downright scary
by Paul Kennedy, September 25th, 2008 8AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

This is quickly becoming the year of the freshman. The women's ranks have seen an influx of high-scoring forwards, led by Sarah Hagen of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, who leads all freshmen with 11 goals.

Hagen scored her 11th goal in 11 games in a 2-1 win over Northwestern Wednesday evening at Engelmann Field -- the Panthers' third win over a Big Ten team this fall.

Hagen's decisive score came shortly before halftime when she took a touch before blasting a left-footed shot from 25 yards far post and into the upper 90.

"That was her left foot," Wisconsin-Milwaukee coach Michael Moynihan said. "She's right-footed. It's downright scary how hard she can hit the ball. We see it all the time in practice. It's good to see her do it in games."

Freshman Makenzie Gillaspie's first collegiate goal had given UWM the lead. Alicia Herczeg tallied Northwestern's only goal of the game in the 88th minute to help the Wildcats (5-3-1) avoid the shutout.
