The Wisconsin mens soccer team ended its spring scoring drought with a decisive 5-1 exhibition win against the Milwaukee Bavarian S.C. team Saturday afternoon. Sophomore Jed Hohlbein, a transfer from Southwest Missouri State, scored three back-to-back goals and an assist in the victory at the McClimon Soccer Complex.
UW teammates Erol Goknur and Pat Cronan each notched a goal a piece against the Bavarians, while UW goalkeeper and team captain Eric Hanson recorded five saves.
The Bavarians, back-to-back national Amateur Cup champions, tallied their lone goal early in the first period after a break in the Badger defense, but were unable to hold back the Wisconsin scoring effort throughout the rest of the match.
Wisconsin will end its spring exhibition season April 26 against newly-formed outdoor A-League professional team the Milwaukee Wave United. Under head coach Art Kramer, the assistant coach of Milwaukees professional indoor team the Milwaukee Wave, the game against the Badgers will be one of the pro teams first contests before the A-League schedule starts in May.
