Rattlers score shutout in wind
Janesville Craig graduate Tanner Harrie scored at 14:57 to lead the Rattlers as UW-Rock improved to 5-2-2.
UW-Richland entered soccer competition last season as a club team and played a smaller schedule. This season, Richland is playing a full schedule, but not as a competing member in the Wisconsin Collegiate Conference.
“The conditions were horrible,” UW-Rock coach Grant McNall said. “There was a 20-to-30 mph wind blowing straight across the field.’’
Richland played with a 10-man roster to compound the wind problem.
The Rattlers will travel to UW-Waukesha on Thursday.
