Kansas football lost its game to Wisconsin 1-0 on Sunday at Rock Chalk Park. The match was physical, with a total of 20 fouls throughout the match.
“It was a good game, it’s a good team and we knew it would be a battle”, Head coach Mark Francis told Kansas Athletics. “We had a few chances in the second half. Unfortunately, it was not our day today. “
The game was a battle of defenses in the first half, with no team finding a shot until the 20th minute, when Wisconsin found an opportunity but failed to find the game’s opening goal. Wisconsin dominated the Jayhawks 5-1 in the first half, forcing senior goalie Sarah Peters to save.
“I thought we played well and it could have gone one way or the other,” said Francis. “I was really proud of our courage. We’re going to win more games than we lose if we continue with that kind of mentality.”
Wisconsin came out of the locker room on the attack as they found five shots in the first 15 minutes of half-time and ultimately scored the only goal of the day.
The Jayhawks were outnumbered by the Badgers 13-5, with Peters making five total saves that day.
