RV Taylor Earns Victory Against Lourdes

 

UPLAND, Ind. – Despite the rainy conditions, the RV Taylor women’s soccer team claimed a 3-1 victory over Lourdes on Saturday.

 

With steady rainfall throughout the match, TU (3-0-2) waited until the 43rd minute to place a kick in the back of the net, after a strong-offensive attack in the opening minutes. The Trojans had two tries in the first six minutes of action, keeping the Gray Wolves (2-1-1) offense at bay. TU held a 19-4 shot advantage during the match and placed 11 on-goal, while allowing two shots on-goal for Lourdes.

 

The Purple and Gold had 10 shots in the first period and held the Gray Wolves to one. TU recorded 12 corner kicks, the most in a match this season. The Trojans have now scored three goals or more in their last four matches, outscoring opponents 16-5 during that span.

 

Bailey Zehr opened the scoring, as she had an impressive shot that floated over Lourdes’ keeper. Ali Clodgo made it happen with a few dribbles and a cross into the middle of the box. Zehr now has five goals for the year and Clodgo doubled her assist output and has two for the year.

 

After intermission, Emily Calvani tallied her first goal of the season with a handful of seconds ticked off the clock. There was a scramble in front of the visitors net and Erin Teevans got her heel on the ball and Calvani was able to land a strike on the ball to push the lead to 2-0.

 

The Gray Wolves were able to grab a goal after a high shot that was just out of reach for TU’s Lauren Cammarano.

 

Jourdan Lehman scored an insurance goal in the 77th minute, increasing the lead to 3-1. Danielle Toren set the netter up with a touch pass and Lehman was able to get her boot on it and loft it into the upper right corner for the dagger. Toren was credited with her first assist of 2018 and Lehman scored her second goal.

 

Rebekah Schwulst came inches away from netting her first goal of the season. Zehr placed a nice pass into the box and Schwulst was able to get her body on the ball, but the Gray Wolves’ keeper was able to get two hands on the ball and keep it scoreless in the 31st minute.

 

Zehr now leads the team and the Crossroads League with 16 points, followed closely by Teevans, who has 15.

 

Lauren Engelkes picked up her first result of the season and played in the first half. During the senior’s time in net, she had one save. It took Engelkes 17 minutes to face a shot from Lourdes. Cammarano saw her first action of 2018 and allowed one goal in her debut.

 

The Trojans continue to play at home, when Purdue Northwest (2-1) visits on Tuesday. The match is slated to begin at 6:00 p.m.
