Posted: 29 September, 2012
WAYNE - St. Cloud State scored two goals early in the second half to rally for a 2-1 Northern Sun Conference women’s soccer win Saturday afternoon over Wayne State College at the WSC Soccer Complex in Wayne, Nebraska. SCSU is now 4-4-1 on the season and 3-3 in the NSIC while the host Wildcats fall to 1-8 overall and 1-5 in league play.
In a defensive-minded first half, WSC got on the board in the 43rd minute as sophomore McKenna Adams booted a 25 yard shot on a free kick past St. Cloud State goalkeeper Kenzie Hanzlik in the right corner of the net to give the Wildcats a 1-0 lead at the 43:08 mark.
The Huskies responded quickly to start the second half as Mary Morhardt found the back of the net off a corner kick by Faith Bila to even the score at 1-1 at the 46:18 mark. The Huskies took the lead for good at the 59:59 mark as Kara Dahmen scored an unassisted goal from 30 yards out to culminate the scoring as St. Cloud State rallied for the 2-1 win.
St. Cloud State held a 17-10 advantage in shots and 10-5 edge in shots on goal. The Huskies had the only two corner kicks of the game and SCSU had six fouls to just two on the Wildcats.
McKenna Adams led WSC with her fourth goal of the season and a team-high three shots followed by Hannah Thayer and Josie Brown with two shots. Freshman goalkeeper Courtney True was credited with eight saves while allowing two goals.
The Wildcats will be at home again Sunday afternoon hosting Minnesota Duluth in a 1 p.m. Northern Sun Conference contest.
