Linfield’s women’s soccer team continued their hot streak this week with two more wins, pushing their record up to 4-0 after
defeating Oregon Technical Institution and Corban University on Sept. 11 and 15.
Linfield handily beat Oregon Tech 4-0 in their game on Sept. 11, with the majority of the goals being scored in the first half. It only
took senior Emily Fellows three minutes and two shot attempts to score Linfield’s first goal from 10-yards out.
The Wildcats then scored their second and third goals right around the nine minute mark, with another score from Fellows.
Sophomore Marisa Specht scored her first goal of the season, and earned the third goal of the game.
Junior Jessie Hargett added to their lead in the second half, scoring Linfield’s fourth and final goal of the game mid-way through the
The Linfield keepers stopped every shot that came their way totaling a perfect three saves and no goals against.
Linfield added their fourth win to the season, against Corban, although the win did not come as easy. They took a 1-0 lead in the first
half and added another just a few minutes into the second.
Fellows came through for the Wildcats once again, keeping her streak alive and scoring her sixth goal of the season. The senior
remains Linfield’s leading scorer and has maintained a one and a half goals-per-game scoring average for the season.
Another first occurred for the Wildcats in the first half of the game against Corban, as sophomore Emma Vukic scored her first goal
of the year by finding the back of the net after her own corner kick was passed back to her.
Linfield gave up a second goal of the year early in the second half, but managed to keep Corban scoreless from there out.
Linfield hopes to tack on another win against Pacific University. That game will be played at 7 p.m. on Sept. 18, at Linfield College.
