MADISON, Wis. -- Wednesday night's spring exhibition between the University of Wisconsin women's soccer team and the Marquette Golden Eagles consisted of unpredictable weather, explosive offense and something you'd expect in a derby: physical play.

It was only fitting that the teams played the match at Camp Randall Stadium, home to the UW football team.

On a night where the winds controlled much of the offensive production, the Badgers prevailed with a 3-1 win over the back-to-back-to-back BIG EAST champions.

In a match that was split into three 30-minute periods, the Golden Eagles drew first blood early on in the duel. Wisconsin's Lindsey Holmes secured the equalizer shortly after UW allowed Marquette's lone score of the evening.

The Badgers held Marquette without a goal for the remainder of the match, while goals from juniors Cara Walls and McKenna Meuer helped UW take command of the I-94 rivalry.

Wisconsin continues spring play on Sunday, April 27 as they travel to Champaign, Ill., to take on the Illinois Fightining Illini. Kickoff is slated for noon (CT).
