Soccer Starts Season Strong with 2-0 Win at Home
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - The UW-Eau Claire women’s soccer team kicked off the 2010 season with a 2-0 victory over St. Olaf College (Minn.) at the Bollinger Fields today.
While the teams played even in the first half, the Blugolds scored the game’s first goal less than 10 minutes into the second. The goal came from Lisa Marco (Jr.-Eau Claire, Wis./Memorial) on a free kick from 25 yards out.
The Blugolds managed to outshoot the Oles 14-8, 7-3 in the second half and 7-5 in the first half.
Joan Mattheisen (Fr.-St. Cloud, Minn./Apollo) played all 90 minutes in-goal for the Blugolds and recorded four saves on the day. St. Olaf’s Elizabeth Huggins stopped nine Blugold shots while she also played the entire contest.
Up next, the Blugolds will head to St. Louis, Mo. for two games this weekend. They will face Calvin College (Mich.) at 2 p.m. Saturday and will follow with a game against Washington-St. Louis (Mo.) at 2 p.m. Sunday.
