Last season, the UW-Parkside men’s basketball team had no defensive response for Saint Cloud (Minn.) State in the Rangers’ only home loss of the year.

Apparently, they took that to heart this season.

SOMERS—Goalkeeper Mallory Geurts buried her head in her arms. Her UW-Parkside women’s soccer teammates looked momentarily stunned, stuck to the frozen Wood Road Field turf, briefly unable or unwilling to process what just happened.

All around them, the Grand Valley (Mich.) State players whooped and hollered, their jubilance unfettered after redshirt senior defender Kaely Schlosser’s overtime goal in the 97th minute kept their national-title defense alive and well.

Breaking down the NCAA Tourney field

This weekend will especially sweet for one of the four teams playing in the NCAA Division II Women’s Soccer Tournament at UW-Parkside’s Wood Road Field.

The two-day, three-game event will culminate with a regional final at noon Sunday. Today, Minnesota-Mankato will face Central Missouri State at 11 a.m. with UW-Parkside facing nemesis Grand Valley (Mich.) State at 1:30 p.m. The winners will play Sunday for spot in the Final Four in Louisville, Ky., beginning Dec. 4.
