MILWAUKEE, Wis.-- Stopping in Milwaukee for the last leg of its three-game roadtrip, the Wisconsin men's soccer team handed the Panthers their second-consecutive 2-0 shutout loss Wednesday night.

The Badgers earned their first win of the three-game roadtrip, improving their overall record to 8-6-2, while the loss puts Milwaukee at 5-8-2.

"Great result tonight," head coach John Trask commented. "I thought we looked dangerous going forward.

"I am looking forward to a great match up against Ohio State this Sunday."

Sophomore Blake Succa (Lewisberry, Pa.) connected on a double assist from sophomore Nick Janus (Deer Park, Ill.) and senior Josh Thiermann (Stoughton, Wis.) to net his first goal of the season and put the Badgers up 1-0 at the 24:52 mark.

Less than 10 minutes later, junior Tomislav Zadro (Toronto, Ontario) provided the Badgers with an insurance goal, extending their lead to 2-0 in the 34th minute.

Freshmen David Caban (Kenosha, Wis.) and AJ Cochran (St. Louis, Mo.) earned assists on Zadro's team-best fifth goal of the season.

Despite being outshot 7-6 in the first half, UW took its 2-0 lead into halftime.

The Panthers attempted seven more shots in the second half, but were once again denied by Wisconsin's solid backfield.

UW's defense was also able to successfully clear out all 11 of Milwaukee's corner kick attempts.

Additionally, the Panthers failed to take advantage of the 11 fouls committed by Wisconsin to just five on their end.

With the missed opportunities and early goals by Wisconsin, the Panthers found themselves in a hole too big to escape.

Both goalkeepers recorded three saves in the game with Wisconsin's goalkeeper, sophomore Max Jentsch (Hartland, Wis.), coming out on the winning end to improve his record to 6-3-2.

Wisconsin returns to the McClimon Centers this weekend to host one of the frontrunners in the Big Ten, the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Come out and help honor the five Badger seniors as they take the field in Madison for the final regular season game of their collegiate careers. Game time is slated for 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 30.
