Lone goal stands in loss to Truman
KIRKSVILLE, Mo.-Truman midfielder Jaclyn Schumann scored on a corner kick from teammate Kelsey Twellman in the 31st minute and the Bulldogs held on to top Northwest Missouri State Thursday at Truman Soccer Park in the MIAA opener for both teams.
Northwest (0-2-1) has lost four one-goal decisions to Truman (2-1-0) in the team's last five meetings dating back to 2008. The Bearcats are 0-21 all-time against the Bulldogs, who were the coaches' pick to win the MIAA this season.
Truman out-shot Northwest 25-9 but the Bearcats placed seven of their nine shots on goal. Truman goal keeper Emily Bozdeck made two saves in the final 10 minutes to preserve the shutout including a stop in the final minute on a shot by Kelsey Sanders. Bozdeck shared the shutout with Jayne Grisham who made two saves in the first half.
Northwest goal keeper Kelsey Adams made a season-high 12 saves, but earned her second loss of the season despite surrendering just one goal in each of the team's first three games. The Bearcats have scored once in more than 300 minutes to begin the season. Sanders, the team's second-leading scorer a year ago, has taken three shots in the team's first three games.
Next Up: Northwest continues MIAA play on the road Saturday with a 1 p.m. contest against Missouri Western (0-3-0, 0-1-0 MIAA) in St. Joseph. The Griffons lost to Nebraska-Omaha Thursday in their first conference competition.
