Soccer: LWC Women extend win streak
By Christopher Webster
Crestview Hills, KY - The No. 11-ranked Lindsey Wilson women's soccer team expand their winning streak to five games with a 4-1 win over Thomas More (KY) Wednesday evening.
The Blue Raiders (6-2, 5-0 MSC) remain undefeated in Mid-South Conference action while Thomas More (8-3, 4-1 MSC) suffers their first conference loss of the season and recorded their lowest scoring total of Mid-South Conference play.
Lindsey Wilson jumped at a chance to take the lead early as in the 2nd minute Emma Lindell set up a nice pass to Alina Siegel who fired a powerful shot. Thomas More goalkeeper Kylie O'Leary was able to reach out and get a hand to the ball to keep the match scoreless.
In the 19th minute, O'Leary was forced into another save situation as Tracy Jones put a freekick from 23 yards out on frame and the Saints goalkeeper was able to corral the shot to prevent the scoring play.
The Saints opened the scoring in the 25th minute as Ryann Meddings set up a freekick that floated over the Blue Raider's defense and found the foot of Lotte Derksen to push Thomas More out in front 1-0.
The Blue Raiders searched for the equalizer in the waning moments of the first half as pair of shots from Yudaya Nakayenze and one from Rayssa Neres Gomes De Souza couldn't find the back of the net.
Just as the half was about to end, Lindsey Wilson found their break as the Thomas More defense had difficulties trying to clear the ball and Claudia Santillan Escobar capitalized on the mistake, tying the match with five seconds remaining.
Momentum swung in Lindsey Wilson's favor as in the 48th minute Lindell attacked the Saint's defense and linked with De Souza for her first career goal to give the Blue Raiders a 2-1 advantage.
Lindsey Wilson grabbed a commanding 3-1 lead in the 74th minute as De Souza fired a shot past the outstretched arms of Thomas More's goalkeeper for her second goal of the match.
The scoring wasn't done just yet, as Alicia Thoresen connected with Nakayenze in the 82nd minute for her sixth goal of the season to give Lindsey Wilson a 4-1 cushion as the Blue Raiders took the match to remain unbeaten in conference play.
The Blue Raiders return to the pitch on Saturday as they host Georgetown (KY) at Walter S. Reuling Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 5pmCT.
