MADISON, Wis. -- The Wisconsin men’s soccer team fought back from two one-goal deficits, but couldn’t overcome a third deficit late in the game, as the Badgers dropped a 3-2 decision to No. 25 Washington on Friday night in Portland, Ore.

The Huskies used two goals from striker Dylan Tucker-Gangnes in the second half, including one off a penalty kick, to advance past Wisconsin. The Badgers now drop to 1-1-0 on the season, while Washington improves to 3-0-0.

“It was a hard fought game, but at the end of the day you can’t win after giving up three goals,” head coach John Trask said. “There were a lot of positive moments for us tonight, but it’s hard to win out of region, and Washington is a very competitive team.”

The Huskies jumped out to an early lead behind a goal off a set piece in the 12th minute. James Moberg took a corner kick for Washington, and Bradley McIntosh put a header into the back of the net from six yards out.

The Badgers weren’t deterred by the early deficit and forced their way back into the game. In the waning minutes of the first half, Ryan Buda tallied his first goal of the season off a laser of a shot from 30 yards out, placing it in the top right corner of the goal.

With the game tied at 1-1 after halftime, Wisconsin looked to carry the momentum into the new half. However, a penalty kick was awarded to Washington in the 53rd minute, resulting in a Husky goal off the foot of Tucker-Gangnes.

After conceding the lead for a second time, the Badgers continued to assert their style of play and the persistence paid off in the 62nd minute. Jacob Brindle scored his first goal of the year from inside the six-yard box after receiving assists from Jide Oluyedun and Blake Succa.

Unfortunately for Wisconsin, Tucker-Gangnes scored for a second time to put the Huskies up, 3-2. Washington was awarded a free kick about 23 yards out, and the Husky striker put the ball in off the set piece in the 72nd minute.

The goal would be the last of the match as the Badgers couldn’t find the late equalizer. Additionally, coach Trask was assessed a red card in the 79th minute and will be forced to sit out the Sunday’s contest.

Wisconsin will return to the pitch on Sunday to face-off against Portland at 4:30 p.m. (CT).
