Tritz Turns in Successful Bearcat Debut
WICHITA, Kan.-Northwest Missouri State junior Andrea Tritz assisted on the Bearcats' first goal of the season and scored the second in a 2-0 win against Southwestern Oklahoma State Saturday.
Tritz teamed with senior Holly Ramaeker for a goal at the 10-minute mark of the first half. Ramaeker scored from 12-yards out and found the upper right corner of the net. Ten minutes into the second half, Tritz headed a cross from Andrea Freeman to give the Bearcats' a two-goal lead.
The teams waited out a storm for nearly two hours before officially ending the game in the 71st minute. The Bearcats mustered 13 shots in the contest allowed three during the contest.
Junior Kira Lazenby got the start at goalkeeper for Northwest and stopped both the Bulldogs' shots on goal. The Bearcats started two freshmen, Kate Horvat and Jacque Dedovesh, at defender. Sophomore Amanda Olah and senior Jessica Braun also anchored the defense.
Tritz, who transferred to Northwest from Iowa Central Community College, combined for 115 goals in her high school and junior college career. She's the all-time leading goal scorer at Iowa Central and at Bishop Heelan High School in Sioux City, Iowa.
Lazenby spent two years at Iowa Western Community College and a season at UTEP before arriving in Maryville.
