Bearcats pick up first win of the season
MARYVILLE, Mo. - Northwest Missouri State University soccer team finished their season opening home stand by picking up their first win of the season Sunday afternoon beating Wayne State University 2-1 at Bearcat Pitch.
The Bearcats improved to 1-1 on the season after falling in overtime to Texas A&M-Commerce on Saturday.
Wayne State struck first with less than two minutes remaining in the first period when Kelsey Meyer scored but that would be the only goal of the afternoon for Wayne State.
Northwest started hot in the second period scoring off of a strike by Kelly Obley in the 47th minute. Tammy Eiberger continued her hot start to the 2011 season by heading in her fourth goal of the season off of a corner kick by Obley just two minutes later.
The Bearcats return to action this week when they travel to Wichita, KS for two games. Northwest opens action on Thursday at Friends University. They will then close out the weekend at Newman University on Saturday.
