Loggers Record Thrid Straight Shutout In Win At Willamette
SALEM, Ore. – Robin Vieira scored twice in the second half to help push the Puget Sound women's soccer team to a 3-0 win at Willamette on Sunday. The win is the third straight for the Loggers (4-2-1, 3-0-1 NWC) and their third straight shutout.
For the second consecutive match, the Loggers defense proved to be stingy in allowing just four shots. None of those shots found their way on goal on goal as Kara Merfeld ran her scoreless streak to 290 minutes.
The Loggers held a 16-4 shot advantage in the match and didn't waste much time in finding their first goal. Liz Blonden settled Kylie Beeson's corner kick from 19 yards out and fired it to the upper left corner for a 1-0 Logger lead.
It wasn't until the second half that Vieira was able to get on the board. She scored from 15 yards out on a through pass from Cassie Winter in the 72nd minute to give the Loggers a little breathing room. In the 89th minute, Vieira struck again from 12 yards out. Beeson earned her second assist of the match on the play.
Nicole Price had four saves in the match for the Bearcats (3-5-0, 1-3-0 NWC).
The Loggers head east next weekend to take on Whitman and Whitworth.
