Women’s Soccer Shuts Out CUC For Fifth-Straight Win

MILWAUKEE – Sophomore Jeray Riffel scored one goal and assisted on another as the MSOE women's soccer team posted its fifth-straight win with a 2-0 victory over Concordia Chicago Wednesday evening at Viets Field.

The Raiders (7-7, 5-1 NACC) evened their record on the season by blanking the Cougars (4-8-2, 3-3 NACC) for their third-straight shutout and fourth in five games.

Freshman Nora Adkins opened up the scoring in the 19th minute when she hit a looping head ball over the keeper from near the penalty spot. Riffel set up the score with her bounding diagonal ball into the box. Adkins beat the on-rushing keeper to the ball and headed it off the bounce and into the goal.

Despite repeated attacks throughout the rest of the first half and much of the second half, MSOE would not get on the board until the 87th minute. After a corner kick was re-introduced into the box, senior Missy Schultz laid off a ball to Riffel outside the far edge of the box. From there, she bent a cross into the net to make it 2-0.

MSOE held a commanding 26-6 advantage in shots for the match, including 9-3 in shots on goal.

Sophomore Abbie Lorenz made her second-straight start in goal and picked up her second shutout with three saves.

The Raiders will look to continue their run Saturday when they host Benedictine at 4 p.m.
