Weber scores, Nebraska women’s soccer team claims third shutout of season
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (Press Release) -The Nebraska women’s soccer team used a goal in the eighth minute from sophomore Sarah Weber to grab the 1-0 win over Michigan on Sunday afternoon.
The Huskers (4-4-3, 2-1-0 Big Ten) came out firing early and got on board in the eighth minute. Weber tallied her team-leading fifth goal of the season into the lower-left corner of the net for the 1-0 lead.
At the intermission, NU held an 11-5 shot advantage over Michigan (5-4-2, 0-2-1 Big Ten), with Weber and junior Eleanor Dale registering a trio of chances apiece.
Both teams had opportunities to score in the second half, but the Huskers held on to the 1-0 lead and recorded their second conference win of the season.
In total, NU outpaced the Wolverines in shots (7-3) in the second half, and 18-8 on the match. Weber finished the afternoon with a team-high five shots, followed closely by Dale and junior Reagan Raabe with four each.
The Big Red is now 2-10-3 all-time against Michigan as this was the Husker’s first win over the Wolverines since a 5-1 victory in Lincoln in 1997.
Up next, the Huskers stay on the road to face a pair of conference teams in Indiana, with Purdue on Thursday (6 p.m. CT) and Indiana on Sunday (12 p.m. CT).
