MADISON, Wis. - Artur Jozkowicz scored for the third time in the past four games, but the LMU men's soccer team conceded a goal in the final minutes of regulation, falling 2-1 to Wisconsin Sunday.
The match-up with the Badgers (4-3-1) was the final non-conference affair for the Lions (2-6-0) before kicking off West Coast Conference action next week.
Jozkowitcz's team-leading third goal of the season came with less than four minute remaining in the first half and with the Lions trailing 1-0. The senior midfielder had his first shot blocked by a Wisconsin defender, but the rebound came right back to him and he made good on the second opportunity, sending the shot into the right corner of the net.
Wisconsin struck for its first goal in the 23rd minute when Tomislav Zadro took a pass near the top of the box and buried it into the net. Chris Prince and AJ Cochran both earned assists on the goal.
The game-winner came in the 87th minute when the Badgers' David Caban found the back of the net on a double assist by Ryan Buda and Josh Thiermann.
LMU finished with 11 shots to Wisconsin's 18 while Lion goalkeeper Jack McCormack made five saves.
The Lions concludes their current three-game road trip on Wednesday, Sept. 28, opening WCC play at San Diego. Kick off is scheduled for 7 p.m.
