MOUNT VERNON, Ohio – All six of the Mount Vernon Nazarene University women's soccer victories this season have come by way of a shutout, including a 1-0 result over visiting Campbellsville on Saturday, Sept. 23.
The heat was a factor in this game, but it did not seem to deter the Cougar starting back line of Regina Rudder, Olivia Crichlow, Adison Preston, and Natalie Cicolani from staying near the Campbellsville attackers. MVNU limited Campbellsville to just five shot attempts. All three of the attempts on frame were turned back by senior goalkeeper Madi Moore.
The MVNU score would come at the very beginning of the 22nd minute, as Amberly Knox one-timed a beautiful ball from Morgan Gibson off the bounce, lifting a topspin drive over Howard's head for what turned out to be the game-winner.
It was Knox's third goal of the season, tied with freshman forward Alexa Skal for the team's season high total.
MVNU finished the contest with 15 shots, and had relatively consistent pressure on the Campbellsville defense. Seven of those shots were on goal, with Skal producing three of those.
"I'm proud of how our team came out and gritted through a close one today," said Head Coach Daniel Seiffert. "Both teams competed hard through these conditions, so it was good that we were able to get another shutout result. We are still a little banged up right now and are hoping to use this week to get some of our athletes back in training. We look forward to getting back to work soon!"
Following another impressive defensive effort, MVNU (6-2-0) will now begin its Crossroads League play in 2017 with an away match against unbeaten Indiana Wesleyan Sept. 29 at 7 p.m.
