Milwaukee, Wis. – Despite controlling most of the first half, the Indiana Tech women’s soccer team went into the break trailing William Penn University by one on Saturday at the Cardinal Stritch University Labor Day Weekend Tournament. However, the Warriors rallied for six second half goals, scored by five different players, to come from behind and defeat the Lady Statesmen 6-1.
The win bumped the Warriors to 4-1 overall while William Penn fell to 0-3 on the season.
Indiana Tech dominated the first half outshooting William Penn 15-2, but the Lady Statesmen managed to slip one by Tech sophomore keeper Bre Wojnarowski (Maumee, OH/Maumee) in the 42nd minute to take a 1-0 lead.
However, the Warriors came charging out of the gates to start the second half scoring three goals in the first seven minutes.
Junior Natalie Zimmerman (Berkley, MI/Berkley) got the scoring started after finding the back of the net at the 45:47 mark, and fellow junior Alex Field (Gilberts, IL/Hampshire) scored back-to-back goals to put Tech ahead 3-1.
The Warriors continued to pad their lead as junior Jess Stanton (East Lansing, MI/East Lansing) scored in the 62nd minute, and freshman Nicole Price (Crestwood, IL/Oak Forest) and senior Justine Jost (Ft. Wayne, IN/Huntington) both tallied their first goals of the season later in the match.Tech finished the day with 39 shots compared to William Penn’s two, and held an 8-2 edge in corner kicks.
The Warriors conclude the CSU Labor Day Weekend Tournament tomorrow against Viterbo University at 3 p.m.
