Hoza Becomes Winningest Soccer Coach At Northwest
MARYVILLE, Mo.-Amanda Deml scored two goals and assisted on another to lead Northwest Missouri State to a 3-2 win over MIAA foe Emporia State Friday afternoon at Bearcat Pitch. The Bearcats have won the first two games of their current five-game home stand and host 15th-ranked Washburn tomorrow at 2 p.m.
Head Coach Tracy Hoza earned her 23rd victory at Northwest and is now the all-time winningest coach in program history. Joann Wolf, who became Northwest soccer's first coach in 1999, earned 22 wins in four seasons.
Northwest is now 4-1 in MIAA home openers under Hoza and 5-4 overall. The Bearcats have won four in a row against the Hornets dating back to 2005.
Andrea Freeman recorded her first collegiate goal in the first half and staked Northwest to a 1-0 lead 15 minutes into the game. Caitlin Riemer answered two minutes later for the Hornets. Alicia Smith played a wonderful cross and found Riemer wide open next to the left side of the goal.
Deml put the Bearcats back in front at the 27-minute mark of the first half. Marti Trummer made a sharp pass to Deml on the left-hand side of the box and Deml was wide open for the shot. It was Trummer's first assist this season.
Northwest controlled the pace for much of the second half and capitalized on a Deml shot that slid under the right arm of Hornet goalkeeper Megan Martin. Krista Pollman was credited with her first assist of the year and Northwest led 3-1.
Sarah Tetuan cut the lead to 3-2 with her second goal of the season with two minutes left to play. Emporia was unable to muster a shot as time expired.
The Bearcat defense allowed just two shots on goal in the contest. Lauren Hodgson played all 90 minutes and made two saves to earn her second win of the season.
