TU Claims Blank Sheet in Win Over Purdue Northwest

 

UPLAND, Ind. – The Taylor women’s soccer team continued its hot start to the 2018 campaign on Tuesday, with a 3-0 victory over Purdue Northwest.

 

The Trojans (4-0-2) used their quick-striking offense once again, this time scoring in the ninth minute of the opening period. TU added another goal in the 22nd minute and notched one in the first ten minutes of the second to seal the deal.

 

Danielle Toren tallied her second goal of the season and first game winner, to give Taylor the early 1-0 advantage. The goal started with a throw in from Savannah Porter, which was kicked out by Erin Teevans and Toren was able to put a boot on the ball and place it in the lower-left corner of the net.

 

Teevans added another goal off a deflection in front of the box, pushing the lead to 2-0. The freshman now has seven goals and four assists for 19 points. Zehr scored the team’s third goal of the match and Kate Kortenhoeven was credited with the assist, the first of her career. This is the third time this year the duo has scored in the same match. Zehr has scored in four-straight matches.

 

The Pride (2-3-0) felt the pressure of TU’s strong defense and offense during the match. Taylor held a 23-3 shot advantage and put 10 on-goal, compared to Purdue Northwest’s three. The Pride did not attempt a shot until the last five minutes of the first period, the Trojans had eight. Purdue Northwest went 20 minutes between shots in the second half and did not attempt one in the last 15 minutes of the match.

 

On offense, Teevans led with seven shots, the most of her career and Zehr followed with five.

 

Hannah Davis showed off some impressive footwork during her time on the pitch. On several occasions, she was able to get past defenders with her dribbling. The junior finished with three shots and had one on-goal.

 

Lauren Engelkes started in goal and improved her record to 2-0-0. The senior had zero saves, as the Pride’s one shot attempt was off course. Lauren Cammarano replaced Engelkes in the second half. The junior held the same scoresheet as her teammate.

 

The Purple and Gold hold a 6-0 scoring advantage over Purdue Northwest in the series, which dates back to last season.

 

TU travels to Indiana Tech (1-4-0) on Friday. The non-conference match is slated to begin at 7:00 p.m.
