No. 21 Spartans down Badgers, 3-0
Oct. 17, 2010
East Lansing, Mich. - Michigan State posted its second consecutive shutout of the week, downing Big Ten rival Wisconsin, 3-0, at DeMartin Stadium. The No. 21 Spartans got a goal and an assist from Domenic Barone, which included the junior converting a penalty shot. Jake Fullerton had the other MSU score.
The scoring opened in just the seventh minute, when Wisconsin was charged with an own goal when a defender tried to clear a Cyrus Saydee offering.
The Spartans were able to add to their lead in the 31st minute, when the Badgers were whistled for fouling Brent Rosendall in the box. Barone lined up for the penalty kick, froze the goalie, and sent his shot into the lower left corner of the net for his sixth goal of the season.
MSU's first goal in the run of play came in the second half, when Jake Fullerton was able to get a foot on the pass from Domenic Barone, and put his shot off the crossbar and into the net. It was the senior's second tally of the season, and also of his career.
Michigan State will play a midweek tilt at Bowling Green (Wednesday, 4 p.m.) before returning back to DeMartin Stadium on Sunday to host Big Ten rival Indiana (1 p.m.) MSU's seven seniors will be honored in a pre-game ceremony.
