MADISON, Wis. – Freshmen Nick Janus (Deer Park, Ill.) and Joey Tennyson (Milwaukee, Wis.) scored two goals over a 31-second span in the first half as the University of Wisconsin men’s soccer team earned a 2-0 win over visiting Milwaukee at the McClimon Complex Wednesday night.

“It’s really great to get the win tonight,” head coach John Trask said. “I’m proud of the effort the guys put forth, and it’s great that they’ve finally been rewarded for their hard work and progress. We need to use the momentum from this win as we move through our remaining three games and into the Big Ten Tournament.”

Senior Bryan Gerster (Dacula, Ga.) set up both of Wisconsin’s goals as the Badgers scored back-to-back tallies in the game’s opening 10 minutes.

Janus scored his first career goal, which proved to be the game-winner, at the 8:57 mark. Gerster centered the ball from the left side of the field, and Janus finished at the 18-yard box by blasting a one-timer past UWM keeper John Shakon.

Wisconsin (2-11-2, 0-3-1 Big Ten) extended its lead to two just 31 seconds later. Gerster carried the ball up the right side of the field and sent a long ball toward the goal, pulling Shakon out of position. Tennyson then directed Gerster’s ball into a wide open net from right in front.

Freshman Max Jentsch (Hartland, Wis.) made one save in his first career shutout. The Badger defense, anchored by sophomore Kyle McCrudden (Wilmette, Ill.), junior Arnel Zahirovic (Melbourne, Australia) and freshman Luke Goodnetter (Elm Grove, Wis.), limited Milwaukee (5-8-2, 3-4-0 Horizon League) to one shot on goal.

The Panthers outshot UW, 9-7, but the Badgers held a 5-1 advantage in shots on goal. Shakon finished with three saves for Milwaukee.

The Badgers play their final road game of the regular season Sunday when UW travels to Ohio State for a 1 p.m. (CT) match with the Buckeyes. The game will air on the Big Ten Network on a tape-delay basis at 6 p.m. (CT) Sunday night.
