Minnesota Crookston falls to 1-11-2 overall.
It was a cold and windy afternoon in Crookston Sunday afternoon, as the University of Minnesota Crookston women’s soccer team hosted Concordia University, St. Paul on senior day.
The Golden Bears would spoil senior day for seniors Jessica Scott (Post Falls, Idaho), and Aimee Silva (Yakima, Wash.) as CSP would score two goals on the day, one in each half, for a 2-0 victory in NSIC play.
It would take a while for both teams to get going, as a majority of the first 20 minutes of the first half was spent in the middle of the field.
The Golden Bears would have some time in the Golden Eagles half of the field, and Jordan Rowan-Stafford would put her squad on the board with an assist from Jena Berkland.
Berkland would dribble the ball into the box, and would find Rowan-Stafford to her left, and Rowan-Stafford rolled the ball past Minnesota Crookston goalkeeper Athena DiMario Done (So., Windsor, Ontario).
The end of the first half would wind up being a little heated between the two squads on a chilly afternoon, but the first half ended with a 1-0 CSP lead.
Rowan-Stafford would score her second goal of the game late in the second half on an assist from Cayla Renwick for a 2-0 lead.
For the Golden Eagles, Jessica Scott led the way with three shots on the afternoon, with two being on net. DiMario Done would finish the day with eight saves on the day. With the loss, DiMario Done’s win-loss record falls to 1-6-2 on the season.
Rowan-Stafford led her team with both of the teams’ goals, and 10 shots. Jade Weller, and Brooke Salo each added three shots. As a team, CSP finished with 24 shots on the day.
With the loss, Minnesota Crookston falls to 1-11-2 overall, and 1-8-2 in the NSIC. The Golden Bears improve to 8-3-3 overall, and 5-3-3 in the NSIC.
The Golden Eagles will be back in action next weekend as they get set to take on Augustana University, and Wayne State College. That match with the Vikings is set for 4 p.m., Friday afternoon. The match with the Wildcats is set for next Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.
