Five minutes in, Sophia Boman opens the season with a goal which turns out to be the game winner. Gophers defeat Baylor 1-0.

Minnesota keeper, Megan Plaschko, recorded her second shut out; but the Gophers could not net a goal in a tie with UIC.

The University of Minnesota (1-0-1, 0-0-0 B1G) secured it's second shutout in as many matches on Sunday afternoon at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium with a 0-0 draw against the University of Illinois - Chicago. Megan Plaschko, along with the Gophers back line, allowed just four shots with only one on frame to secure the clean sheet.

"Sunday matches are arguably the hardest in college soccer," Chastain said. "We are disappointed in the result today, but there are still bright spots with our group. Defensively we were organized and we were tough. We generated some really nice chances in the run of play that hopefully now our next step will be capitalizing on those."

The biggest question will be who scores imo. There are a lot of nice pieces for coach Chastain to work with. Just gotta find a player or two who can find the back of the net.

Minnesota defeated Drake 1-0 in Des Moines. The lone goal came via a successful DeLaney Stekr penalty 5 minutes into the match. 25 minutes later, Drake was red carded for playing tackle football and operated short handed the rest of the way.

Another match; another shutout; another tie. Mississippi State 0, Minnesota 0.

Here's Plaschko saving a penalty; it may have been her second best save of the match

Minnesota peppered the North Dakota all match and punched two shots through for a 2-0 win. Each goal game in the final minute of a half and are worth a look.

While I was at volleyball, the Gophers dropped the B1G opener 2-1 to Bucky in front of a sold out home crowd. Badgers netted game winner in the 82nd minute.

One of these years, Gopher soccer might beat Wisconsin. I just don't know when that'll be.

It HAS been a little one-sided over the last 8 years.

Trailing in Columbus 2-0 in the first 25 minutes, Minnesota turned on the offense to defeat the Buckeyes 4-2. Plaschko was terrific in goal while the Gophers finished opportunities off some brilliant passes.

Here's what turned out to be the game winner
