MILWAUKEE, Wis. ( - The Green Bay women's soccer team (2-8-3, 0-4-1 Horizon League) dropped a hard-fought battle against in-state rival Milwaukee (8-5-2, 4-1-0 Horizon League) Friday night. The Panthers scored the lone goal in the 100th minute of action.

The Phoenix went into the match with a defensive mindset, attempting to contain junior forward Sarah Hagan and Milwaukee's high-scoring offense.

"I'm really proud of the way the girls played tonight against a very talented Milwaukee team," Phoenix head coach Trevor Warren said. "It was a gutsy performance, we stuck to our game plan and we were very close to sending it to the second overtime period."

Milwaukee junior Keara Thompson scored the game-winner just seconds before the first overtime period ended following a cross on a free kick from senior Nicole Sperl. Hagan led the Panthers with a game high eight shots, including three on goal.

Phoenix goalkeeper Maddie Drusch (Appleton, Wis.) kept Green Bay within striking distance throughout the night. Drusch saved a total of nine Panther shots, as Milwaukee outshot the Phoenix 27-4.

Green Bay is back in action on Tuesday, Oct. 19 at 7 p.m. at Loyola.
