MADISON, Wis. -- Kinley McNicoll and Cara Walls scored a pair of goals each, as the No. 19 Wisconsin women's soccer team topped South Dakota State, 5-0, at the McClimon Complex in Madison on Friday night.

Part of the annual PAC the MAC soccer doubleheader, the Badgers (3-0-0) wasted no time entertaining the crowd of 712 in attendance, scoring two goals in the first 12 minutes and then coasting to a blanking of the Jackrabbits (0-2-0).

Orchestrating the attack was midfielder Rose Lavelle, who tallied three assists on the night. Marisa Kresge notched the fifth and final goal, her first of the season.

"It was a great team effort tonight," UW head coach Paula Wilkins said. "We saw some scoring sparks from different people. I think that's really important to have moving forward in the season."

 Fast Facts
• McNicoll, Walls score two goals each
• Lavelle tallies three assists
• UW outshoots SDSU 24-4

Walls got the scoring started quickly in the fifth minute, beating goalkeeper Nicole Inskeep from 15 yards out off a nice ball play through from Lavelle.

McNicoll added on and gave Wisconsin their second score of the first half in the 12th minute. Her first goal of the season, McNicoll beat Inskeep and scored high off a free kick from the top of the box.

The Badgers came out and blitzed the Jackrabbits right from the start, scoring their pair of goals on four shots--all on goal--through the first 20 minutes.

McNicoll struck again just out of the break, beating the keeper high near post off an assist from Lavelle for her second score of the night at the 47:13 mark.

Walls later matched McNicoll with an unassisted goal and became the second Badger with a pair of scores on the night. The senior dribbled past the keeper, then finished off by scoring open net in the 58th minute to give UW a commanding 4-0 score.

Kresge tapped in the fifth and final score of the night for Wisconsin, finishing off a rebound from a Lavelle shot that was initially saved.

It marked the third assist on the night for Lavelle, who has played a crucial role in UW's undefeated start to the season and has recorded at least one point in each of the first three matches this season. The sophomore's three assists tied her for third all-time in UW history for assists in a single game (3).

The two goals from Walls marked her second and third on the season, while McNicoll registered her first two scores of the year.

"It's nice to finally score, especially after the (U-20 Women's) World Cup (this summer) where I was playing fullback," McNicoll said. "Being able to attack here tonight, play in the midfield and score some goals is always rewarding."

That attacking paid off for the Badgers to the tune of a 24-4 advantage in shots on the night.

Genevieve Richard earned her third win this season at goalkeeper for UW, after being called on to make just one save in 45 minutes of work.

Wisconsin concludes its home weekend against Northern Iowa on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at the McClimon Complex in Madison.
