SPRING ARBOR, Mich. – Freshman forward Alexa Skal scored her first career collegiate goal and added another one later to help lead MVNU women's soccer to a 3-0 result over Point Park.
The win was the second consecutive shutout for the Cougars and goalkeeper Madi Moore, capping a successful trip to Spring Arbor, Mich.
Skal's first goal came at the 17:56 mark of the opening half, taking an assist from Kam Courtright to put the Cougars ahead 1-0.
The 1-0 lead would hold until the halftime intermission, as MVNU dictated much of the play and kept Point Park opportunities to a minimum.
The third and final score came from Skal once again at the 65:54 mark, as she controlled a pass from Rudder to add some insurance to the final result for MVNU.
The MVNU attack put consistent pressure on the Point Park back line, which proved unable to hold up. The Cougars had 20 shots in the contest to just eight for Point Park, and ten of them were on the frame of goal.
The goalkeeper Moore made four saves in the contest to preserve the clean sheet.
"It was a good weekend for our women's soccer team," said Head Coach Daniel Seiffert. "I was really happy with how we came out and competed on back to back days. Our team came out with a combination of grit and composure, which was really refreshing to see. We still have a lot of work to do, but we made some good steps in the right direction this weekend. We will look to rest up and get back to work immediately as we continue on this stretch of four games in six days."
The stretch of four games in six days will continue on Tuesday, September 5, when MVNU (2-1) travels to face Shawnee State in a 5 p.m. matchup.
