Women’s Soccer: Warhawks win 5-1, remain unbeaten

By Daniel Schoettler

The UW-Whitewater women’s soccer team won the ‘Hawk Cup’ for the first time in the last three seasons in their 5-1 victory over the Loras College Duhawks.  The Warhawks stay unbeaten at 11-0-3 with the win at Fiskum Field Wednesday night.

“It’s a great win,” head coach Ryan Quamme said. “It’s been a long time coming. It was a good effort by our team. Soccer can be a weird sport sometimes and we put them away tonight.”

The Warhawks wasted no time getting on the board against the Duhawks as freshman forward Carina Krausert got the assist from midfielder Jenna Woodson to score her fifth goal of the season.  Later with less than ten minutes left in the half, junior midfielder Sarah Sedlar added a goal to make it 2-0.

About two minutes into the second half, Krausert put the ’Hawks on the board again with her second goal of the game.  Krausert has now scored six goals on the season and Wednesday’s game was her second multiple goal game in a row.

“It was pretty exciting,” Krausert said. “I think this season, we’ve been settling for the final pass, and we got it done tonight.”

In the 60th minute of the game, another freshman made an impact on the game as Brianna Reid scored off an assist from Woodson.  Seven minutes after Reid’s goal, another freshman scored, as Carly Pottle scored the fifth goal of the game for the ’Hawks.

Junior goalkeeper Jordan Myers had a solid game for the ’Hawks, only allowing one goal. With 69 minutes left, the Duhawks were awarded a penalty, which Myers saved to keep the opposition scoreless.

With less than twenty minutes left in the game, the Duhawks scored when a ball took a bad bounce off the wet grass and into the goal.

The next game for the undefeated ’Hawks comes at noon on Saturday against the 3-11-1 UW-Superior Yellowjackets at Fiskum Field.
