Soccer Extends Unbeaten Streak To 14
Posted: Sunday, October 5, 2008
NORTHFIELD, Minn. - The third-ranked UW-Eau Claire soccer team shut down the Carleton College Knights today with a 3-0 victory, extending the Blugolds unbeaten streak to 14 games, a new school record for consecutive games without a loss.
The game was scoreless for the first 20 minutes, but the Blugolds ended that with a goal 22 minutes in. Three minutes later the Blugolds struck again giving them a 2-0 lead at the half. The second half remained scoreless until the 86th minute when the Blugolds scored their last goal of the game after the Knights keeper deflected a shot and the Blugolds put it back in.
Rachel Nerison (Fr.-Maple Grove, Minn) scored the first Blugold goal at 22:29 from a short cross from the right for a grounder to the right of the goal. The next goal came from Ali Mater (So.-Elm Grove, Wis./Brookfield East) at 25:32 with an assist from Sam Krueger (So.-Elm Grove, Wis./Brookfield East). In the second half, Liz Kooistra (Sr.- Lakeville, Minn.), who provided the assist for the first goal, scored the Blugolds final goal at 86:04 with an assist from Nerison.
On the day, Eau Claire outshot the Knights 16-9. Allie Rivard (Sr.-Plymouth, Minn./Wayzata) did not allow any goals on the day and had a total of four saves. The Knights goalkeeper Kate Trenerry had a busy day, allowing three goals, but having seven saves.
Eau Claire improves to 12-0-2 overall on the season while being 4-0-0 in conference play. The Knights now drop to 7-5-0 on the year after the Blugolds ended their seven game home winning streak. The Blugolds are now 14-3-1 against the Knights all-time, not losing against them since 1995.
The Blugolds will come back to Bollinger Fields next weekend, facing conference opponent UW-Stevens Point next Saturday at 1:00 p.m.
