Mavericks win in overtime, Lakers extend shutout streak
No. 1 Grand Valley State 8, Malone 0
ALLENDALE, Mich. -- Grand Valley State dominated every facet of its Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) match against Malone on Friday night. In just their second home game of the 2013 season, the No. 1 Lakers scored six goals in the second half to rout the Pioneers, 8-0.
Freshman midfielder Marti Corby kicked off the scoring in the ninth minute. Junior forward Jenny Shaba delivered a cross pass inside the box to Corby, who put the ball in the top right corner of the goal past the reach of goalkeeper Staci Hackett.
At the 20:00 mark of the first half, Shaba tallied a goal of her own on a long pass from senior defender Tayler Ward, which gave GVSU a 2-0 lead.
The score remained unchanged until the 52nd minute. Redshirt freshman forward Olivia Emery notched her second goal of the season as she fired a loose ball into the bottom right corner of the net.
The Lakers did not ease off the gas pedal, though. Freshman forward Erika Bradfield beat backup goalkeeper Sam Soeder one-on-one with a chip shot to extend GVSU's lead to 4-0 in the 67th minute.
Corby scored for a second time at the 73:42 mark, followed by a pair of goals from freshman forward Michelle Foote. Sophomore forward Katie Bounds rifled a shot into the top right corner of the goal from just inside the box for the final goal of the night.
Defensively, the Lakers were just as dominant. GVSU held Malone without a shot until late in the second half. Overall, the Lakers outshot the Pioneers 48-2. None of GVSU's eight opponents this season have managed to score a goal.
The win raises the Lakers' overall record to 7-0-1 and brings it to 5-0-0 in GLIAC play.
No. 5 Minnesota State-Mankato 1, Minot State 0, OT
MANKATO, Minn. -- Sophomore Korey Kronforst buried a goal into the right side with more than three minutes remaining in the first overtime to secure fifth-ranked Minnesota State-Mankato's 1-0 victory against Minot State in Northern Sun Intercollegiate action on Friday afternoon at The Pitch.
With the victory, the Mavericks move to 8-1-0 overall and 6-0-0 in NSIC play, while Minot State drops to 1-5-2 overall and 1-4-1 in league competition. The win extends MSU's conference unbeaten streak to 26 matches and its home unbeaten streak to 28 matches. Those streaks rank 17th-best and tied for 17th-best, respectively, in NCAA Division II history.
Additionally, Kronforst stretches her point-scoring streak to five matches as she has totaled six goals and an assist during the streak. Junior Molly McGough collected her fourth shutout of the season in the win. The shutout gave her 21 during her career in NSIC play - tied for second all-time - and her 29th overall which ranks 16th-best in NCAA Division II history.
Through regulation, the Purple and Gold held a 28-3 advantage in shots and 9-0 edge in shots on goal as the Beavers were content playing a very defensive style and rarely crossing the center line.
The Mavericks snapped the scoreless tie in the 97th minute when junior Emily Moris played a ball down the right side to senior Tori Meinhardt who hit Kronforst in the center of the box before she blasted it past MISU sophomore Gemma Biasetto for her seventh goal of the year to secure the 1-0 win. It marked Kronforst's third game-winning goal of the season.
All in all, MSU outshot the Beavers 30-3 and 10-0 in shots on goal while holding an 11-0 advantage in corner kicks. Biasetto recorded a match-high nine saves for MISU, while McGough was never tested in the victory.
No. 8 Colorado Mines 3, New Mexico Highlands 0
GOLDEN, Colo. -- Senior Anna Evans recorded two goals and NSCAA No. 8 Colorado Mines broke open a one-goal lead with two scores during the final 15:14 to buck New Mexico Highlands 3-0 on Friday evening in Golden.
Despite temperatures hovering in the low 30s, both teams opened aggressively on offense and with 4:04 remaining in the first half, Evans initiated the scoring, taking a short feed from sophomore Rachael Turner on her left and finishing 7 yards out to the right net.
The one-nil advantage stood until the 75th minute when senior Jordan Hopper played a corner attempt to Evans in the deep right wing, and with no defenders closing in, she delivered a 26-yard left-footed blast just under the crossbar to the high, left-90.
Her team-leading fifth of the year and sixth career multi-goal game moved Evans into a tie for second in the RMAC in both goals and points (11).
Less than four minutes later at 78:31, the freshman tandem of Michelle Teramura and Jaclyn Knott provided the final margin as Knott beat a charging keeper to the right from 14 yards out with her season's third score following a short right wing cross by Teramura.
Evans and Knott combined for five of the team's nine shots on goal, while senior Kelsey Neal, junior Kendra Bulawa and freshmen Caitlin Kaltenbaugh and Anna Deleray each had look on net. The women outshot the Cowgirls (4-3-2, 2-3 RMAC) 21-7.
Sophomore keeper Jayln Yates preserved the shutout with five saves, running her season mark to 8-0-1.
Ranked fifth in Division II in shutouts entering the match, Mines (8-0-1, 5-0 RMAC) has shut out seven of its nine foes, surrendering only two scores this season, including just one during the last 778:26.
No. 9 Cal State Stanislaus 4, UC San Diego
TURLOCK, Calif. — Karenee Demery scored twice and assisted on a score as she led the No. 9 Cal State Stanislaus to an 4-1 win against UC San Diego on Friday night.
In front of the biggest crowd of the season with more than 1,200 fans, the Warrior women dominated the Tritons to stay undefeated. Cal State Stanislaus improved to 8-0-1 overall and 6-0-1 in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. UC San Diego lost a regular-season road match for the first time since 2010 — a string of 30 consecutive wins — and fell to 3-3-3 overall and 2-2-3 in the CCAA South.
"I was really please with every aspect of our play [on Friday]. UCSD is a very tough and well coached team," CSUS head coach Gabriel Bolton said.
The Warriors are now 2-0-1 against UCSD in the past three matches played here at Warrior Stadium.
Demery got the offense going in the seventh minute, finishing a play from middle of the box after she sped ahead of defenders. Katelyn Nebesnick led Demery on a nice feed to earn the assist. Demery, a three-time all-american, then assisted on the second goal just six minutes later. Demery and Sabrina Williamson played give-and-go soccer with Williamson blasting a shot from 20 yards out over the goalkeeper's head for a 2-0 lead.
UCSD got a goal back before the end of the first half in the 19th minute on an unassisted goal by Kylene Hill. Demery then scored again, knocking in her 10th goal of the season. After picking up the ball from a couple of touches by Tina Benson and Williamson, Demery dribbled around goalkeeper Kelcie Brodsky for the goal.
A pair of freshmen teamed up on the final count. Mikayla Clifford sent a pass through traffic to find Kirsten Coleman, who juked defenders to find the back of the net.
"Our ability to keep the ball really led to a lot of goal scoring opportunities [on Friday]," Bolton said.
The Stanislaus offense has now out-scored opponents 27-6 — and the Warriors are doing it as a team. Demery has 10 goals, but nine other Warriors have also scored at least a goal.
On the other side of the ball, the defense continues to limit scoring opportunities by the opposition. The Warriors have now held teams to two or fewer shots on goals seven times including four consecutive matches.
No. 10 Quincy 1, William Jewell 0
Quicy, Ill. -- Tenth-ranked Quincy beat William Jewell 1-0 on Friday evening to stay undefeated, improving to 7-0-2 and 6-0-1 in the GLVC. William Jewell fell to 5-4-1 and 3-3-1.
The lone goal came in the 68th minute when Jaclyn Mastroianni sent a ground cross from the right side to Kristine Vogt, who scored her second goal of the season. The Hawks outshot the Cardinals 13-9 in the game as Quincy keeper Jodi Chapie made four saves in the winning effort.
