What a week it's been for the Sun Prairie girls soccer team.

The Cardinals started the week with a 3-2 victory over host Madison Memorial in a Big Eight Conference match Monday night, believed to be Sun Prairie's first win over the Spartans in the program's 23-year history.

After junior Elizabeth Conejo and sophomore Christa Scott scored in an 8-minute span late in the first half, senior Dana Baldwin delivered what proved to be the winning goal on a free kick in the 46th minute and senior goalkeeper Remington Viney finished with nine saves.

Then on Thursday night, Sun Prairie came up just short of another history victory.

Conejo – who also scored in Tuesday's 1-1 non-conference draw with Oregon – found the net again in the 20th minute and the slim lead stood up until senior Kristen Gunderson scored with two minutes left to give visiting Middleton a 1-1 tie with Sun Prairie (11-3-2 overall, 3-2-1 Big Eight) in a matchup of Cardinals.

  • Cedarburg, ranked first in the Wisconsin Soccer Coaches Association Division 1 state poll, moved into the ESPNHS Powerade Fab 50 at No. 44. The Bulldogs lead the website's state rankings, too, followed by Waunakee and Brookfield Central.
