Grace wins fourth straight

GEORGETOWN, Ky. – Grace’s women’s soccer team completed an impressive nonconference season on Wednesday with a 2-0 win at Georgetown.

The Lady Lancers enter Crossroads League play next week with a sterling 8-1 record and winners of four straight matches. Grace’s only blemish so far this season was a 1-0 overtime defeat at No. 19 Embry-Riddle (Ariz.).

A pair of second-half goals by Anna Kuhl and Flavia Faria lifted the Lady Lancers to the road victory over the Tigers (3-4).

For the match, Grace outshot Georgetown 17-5. The Lady Lancers’ defense held the Tigers without a corner kick, and Georgetown only mustered three shots on goal.

Bethany Blackwood saved all three chances for a 90-minute shutout as Grace’s goalkeeper. The backline of Kuhl, Liz Aalbue, Kristen Bellinger and Aubrey Feipel gave the Tigers trouble attacking.

Grace was on the attack from the onset of Wednesday’s match. Jenni Phillips tried a pair of shots less than three minutes into the game.

The Lady Lancers consistently fired shots at the Tigers’ nets, typically from shots by Phillips, Joana Schimmel and Sacia Hanson.

But the Tigers held Grace off the scoreboard in the first half despite 10 shots by the Lady Lancers.

Grace needed but a few minutes in the second half to find the back of the net. The Lady Lancers earned an indirect free kick in the 51st minute. Allison Vroon set up Kuhl for the eventual game-winning goal at the 50:57 mark.

The insurance goal for Grace came 14 minutes later. Vroon and Liz Van Wormer teamed up on an attack, assisting Faria at the 64:00 mark for the final 2-0 scoreline.

Grace held Georgetown to just two shots over the final 45 minutes; the Tigers had virtually no opportunity to close the gap on Grace in the second half.

Schimmel, Hanson and Van Wormer led all players with three shots, and Phillips and Kuhl each shot twice.

The Lady Lancers kick off the Crossroads League season at home on Sept. 26 against Huntington.
