MEQUON, Wis. – A tough 14-minute stretch proved to be the difference between the Concordia University Wisconsin Women's Soccer team and No. 8 University of Chicago, resulting in a 4-0 setback for the Falcons Sunday. The Maroons scored four times between the 26th and 40th minutes as the two teams played a scoreless second half.

- Final Score: No. 8 Chicago 4, Concordia Wisconsin 0
- Location: Fitting Field – Mequon, Wisconsin
- Records: No. 8 Chicago 14-1, Concordia Wisconsin 4-11-1

- The Falcons remained scoreless with the high-powered Maroons for the first 25 minutes, surviving a few close calls early on. In the opening half, Chicago hit three crossbars and had several other strong scoring chances before going on the four-goal burst.

- Jenna McKinney got Chicago on the board with her 12th goal of the season, coming just into the 26th minute. Mia Calamari would add a goal 2:40 later, coming off a cross from McKinney.

- Junior Tabitha Ortiz (Plainfield, Ill.) played the opening half for the Falcons, while senior Ariana Worthing (Saginaw, Mich.) came in for the second half. The duo combined for five saves.
