Soccer: LWC Women defeat Thomas More, advance to MSC semis
By Christopher Webster
The No. 11-ranked and No. 2-seed Lindsey Wilson women's soccer team defeated Thomas More (KY) 4-0 in the Mid-South Conference quarterfinals on Friday evening.
The Blue Raiders (12-1, 10-1 MSC) outshot the Saints (10-9, 5-6 MSC) 15-3 over the duration of the match, while also winning the corner kick total 8-0.
Rayssa Neres Gomes De Souza increased her goal total to 15 on the season, a team-high. Claudia Santillan Escobar and Yudaya Nakayenze each added a goal of their own, while Emma Lindell recorded two assists.
The Blue Raiders were presented with many opportunities to take the lead early as Lindsey Wilson recorded four corner kicks within the first 13 minutes of the match. Nakayenze looked to get her team out in front as she powered a shot in the 3rd minute, but the Saints goalkeeper Kylie O'Leary made a great save to keep the match scoreless.
Lindsey Wilson opened the scoring a little over halfway into the first 45 minutes of play, as Escobar set for a free-kick just outside of the box and connected a pass to De Souza for a header and her 15th goal of the season in the 25th minute.
The Blue Raiders doubled their lead less than 10 minutes later as Lindell attacked the Saint's defense and linked with Escobar for her 10th assist of the season as the Blue Raiders went into halftime with a 2-0 lead.
Coming out of halftime, Thomas More had a chance to cut into the lead as Sydney Rhodes try to capitalize on a Blue Raider miscue. Rhodes had a one-on-one situation and tried to chip a shot over the head of Maya Caon, but she was able to save the shot to keep the two-goal advantage.
Larissa Modesto De Souza grew the Blue Raiders lead in the 60th minute as she dribbled past the Saint's defensive line and powered a shot into the back of the net to take a 3-0 advantage. The scoring wasn't finished yet, as Nakayenze netted her 12th goal of the season in the 68th minute as the Blue Raiders down Thomas More 4-0 in the MSC quarterfinal match.
The Blue Raiders return to the pitch on Wednesday, Nov. 10 as they take on No. 6-seed Cumberlands (KY) in the MSC semifinals. Kickoff is slated for 2:30pmCT in Bowling Green, KY.
