Posted: Sunday, October 22, 2006
ST. PAUL - The sixth-ranked UW-Eau Claire soccer team tied a school record for wins in a season today with its 17th win as it defeated the University of St. Thomas (MN) 3-0.
The Blugolds have a record of 17-2 overall. The Blugolds went 17-4-1 back in the 2002 season. The loss drops the Tommies to an overall record of 7-7-2.
The Blugolds got things rolling early as Becky Westbrock (Sr.-Oakdale, MN/North St. Paul) scored 5:32 into the match, putting the ball over the goalkeeper to make the score 1-0. It was her first goal of the season. Maria Iaizzo (Sr.-White Bear Lake, MN) assisted on the goal.
The score remained that way until the 34th minute when Liz Kooistra (So.-Lakeville, MN) put one past the goalkeeper after a scramble in front of the net to make the score 2-0. Cassie Peeters (So.-Little Chute, WI) had the assist.
The Blugolds got their final score of the game in the 64th minute when Amy Smith (So.-Bloomington, MN/Jefferson) scored to give the Blugolds a 3-0 lead. Becky Westbrock had the assist. The score would not change and the Blugolds pitched its 12th shutout victory of the season, which matches the total of the 1998 season.
