OMAHA, Neb. – Midland University’s women’s soccer picked up their ninth shutout win on Wednesday evening as they defeated College of Saint Mary 4-0. The Lady Warriors earned a clean sheet for the eighth straight game and have now not allowed a goal in 770 minutes. They improve to 9-1-1 (3-0-1 GPAC) on the year while the Flames fall to 5-7 (2-2 GPAC).
“It was nice to pick up the shutout today,” coach Greg Jarosik stated after the match. “The defense did an excellent job no only keeping CSM off the scoreboard but also limiting their shots.”
Midland allowed CSM to just two shots, one on goal, in the match while putting up 20 shots of their own. Fourteen of which were on goal.
Nayeli Rodriguez broke open the scoring up in the 18th minute. She took a ball from PT Perez and snuck it past the keeper. It was her seventh goal of the year and her third game-winner.
Rachel Smith connect from the edge of the box in the 24th minute off of a Gabrielle Luna pass to make it 2-0. Then in the 37th, Lauren Stiles headed in a cross from Allison Buehring as the Warriors took a 3-0 lead to the break.
In the second half Marley Farrell got on the board in the 74th minute to close out the scoring.
“We played an aggressive formation today and it paid off,” Jarosik added. “The girls showed just how versatile we are on the offensive end with seven players having a hand in the attack and earning a point.”
Midland will have the weekend off as they prepare for an NAIA Top 25 matchup with No. 20 Hastings (9-1-1, 3-0 GPAC) next week. The Warriors and the Broncos will square off on Tuesday, October 10th in Fremont, Nebraska. Kickoff is set for 5:00 p.m. at Heedum Field.
