October 28, 2010
NORTHFIELD, Minn. - The St. Olaf women's soccer team had goals from three different players in a 3-1 MIAC win over Bethel University to reach a school record 13th win.
The victory helped the Oles keep pace for a MIAC playoffs spot. St. Olaf is two points behind league leader Concordia (7-1-2 MIAC) and one behind Carleton (7-1-1 MIAC). The Oles, St. Thomas (6-3-1), Saint Ben's (6-3-0) and Macalester (5-3-1) are still in the hunt for a berth while Concordia and Carleton have already clinched a spot.
The Oles (13-4-0, 7-3-0 MIAC) scored twice in the first 2:48 -- on goals from Lindsay Howard and Emma Crumley -- to take a 2-0 lead.
The Royals' Carrie Kishaba closed the game to 2-1 with her goal about 10 minutes into the second half. St. Olaf answered with Caitie Christoffel's seventh goal of the year for the final margin.
St. Olaf goalkeeper Elizabeth Huggins made five saves to get the win.
The Oles finish their regular season schedule on Saturday with a home match against Carleton at 1 p.m.
