By Christopher Webster

Jackson, TN - Rayssa Neres Gomes De Souza scored seven goals as she tied the program's record for most goals in a single game en route to a 12-0 victory for the No. 11-ranked Lindsey Wilson women's soccer team over Freed-Hardeman (TN).

The Blue Raiders (8-2, 7-0 MSC) recorded 37 shots while holding the Lions (2-10, 0-7 MSC) to zero shots during the duration of the match. Lindsey Wilson recorded their season-high in goals scored and goals scored in a single half, with eight in the second half.

Claudia Santillan Escobar recorded three assists in the contest, while Tracy Jones, and Larissa Modesto De Souza each recorded two.

Lindsey Wilson opened the scoring in the 19th minute as Britt Tonis linked with Emma Lindell in stride to put the Blue Raiders in front 1-0. Lindell soon followed up with her second goal of the day in the 34th minute as Alicia Thoresen connected a beautiful pass to double Lindsey Wilson's lead.

A few minutes later, Gomes De Souza began her scoring frenzy as she notched her first goal of the match in the 36th minute after Modesto De Souza beat her defender off the dribble to set up the goal. Gomes De Souza quickly doubled her goal total in the waning moments of the first half when Escobar connected a great pass in the 40th minute to give the Blue Raiders a 4-0 advantage going into halftime.

The halftime break didn't seem to slow Gomes De Souza as she notched her third goal of the match in the 48th minute when she received a pass from Modesto De Souza to push the lead 5-0. Escobar once again located De Souza in the 66th minute, connecting another pass through the Lion's defense to find De Souza for her fourth goal of the day.

Gomes De Souza scored the next two goals for the Blue Raiders off assists from Silvia Marchesi and Escobar to grow the lead 8-0. Marcheschi scored her second goal of the season in the 82nd minute to give Lindsey Wilson its ninth goal of the match.

In the 83rd minute, Gomes De Souza received a cross from Jones as she scored her seventh goal of the match and tying the program record for most goals in a game.

Maria Frazier and Alina Siegel round out the scoring for the Blue Raiders as they defeat Freed-Hardeman 12-0 to remain unbeaten in Mid-South Conference action.

The Lindsey Wilson women's soccer team returns to action on Saturday, Oct. 16 as they battle Bethel (TN). Kickoff is slated for 4:30pmCT in McKenzie, TN.
