Raleigh, N.C. – The Nebraska soccer team (4-3-1) handed No. 13 NC State (6-1-1) its first loss of the season with the Huskers’ 2-1 triumph over the Wolfpack at Dail Soccer Field on Sunday afternoon.

Nebraska ended NC State’s nine-match unbeaten streak overall and the Wolfpack’s 14-match home unbeaten streak by winning the first meeting between the schools in series history.

In the 39th minute, freshman Kenzie Coons scored her first career goal to give NU a 1-0 advantage heading into halftime. Meg Brandt passed to Natalie Cooke, who found Coons to fire a shot into the back of the net.

In the second half, NC State outshot Nebraska 13-3 after the Huskers held a 4-2 edge in shots at halftime.
