Women’s Soccer drops first NAC contest to MSOE

Box Score: MSOE 4, CUW 0

MEQUON, Wis. -
Jamie Janczak and the MSOE women's soccer team delivered Concordia University Wisconsin its first Northern Athletics Conference loss, 4-0, on Wednesday afternoon at Fitting Field.

The box score was identical, but the Raiders (5-4-0, 3-1-0 NAC) forced the ball up the field all game and capitalized in key situations. The Falcons recorded eight shots on goal, but many were from difficult distances on the field, whereas MSOE scored twice from close range.

CUW (5-4-0, 5-1-0 NAC) was led by junior goalkeeper Samantha Anacker's (Janesville, Wis.) five saves and junior Lauren Straehler's (Pewaukee, Wis.) three shots on goal.

Janczak led all players with two goals and an assist. Jessica Axt and Allison Zimont also scored for MSOE.

The Raiders struck first when Janczak drilled a 30-yard free kick strike over the tips of Anacker's fingers less than four minutes into the contest. She later connected with Axt to give MSOE a 2-0 advantage at the 23:24 mark in the opening half.

Zimont scored at the 46:02 mark in the second period when she shot from 40 yards and the ball slipped through the Falcons' goalkeeper's arms to give MSOE a 3-0 lead. Janczak scored the final goal with nine seconds remaining off a rebounded save to give the Raiders the victory.

CUW returns to the pitch on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. for a NAC home matchup against Aurora University at Fitting Field.
