No. 5 Mines Dominates Northern State In 8-0 Win
BILLINGS, Mont. – The No. 5 Colorado School of Mines women's soccer team responded from Friday's season-opening loss with a vengeance on Sunday afternoon by posting an 8-0 win over Northern State at Yellowjacket Field in Billings, Mont.
Mines (1-1-0) got goals from six different players in the match, including a pair by senior Dani Hering. Hering also added assists on goals by Anna Evans and Deirdre Johnson for a total of six points in the match.
Evans started the scoring off in the 7th minute when she broke free from the defense and took Hering's pass and stuck in the back of the left side of the goal.
Megan Woodworth put Mines up 2-0 in the 21st minute with her first goal of the season, and Hering added her first of two in the 25th minute to increase the lead to 3-0.
Freshman Jordan Partin closed out the first half with her first career goal to give Mines a 4-0 lead heading into the break.
The Wolves recorded an own goal in the 48th minute to push the lead to 5-0.
Becca Morales then made it 6-0 with her first goal of the season after she weaved through the Wolves' defense and found the back of the net.
Hering then added her second on a header from Kendra Bulawa's pass to push the lead to 7-0.
Johnson then closed out the scoring in the match with a goal from Hering's second assist of the day to bring the final score to 8-0.
The Orediggers put together one of the most dominating performances in program history in the win after out-shooting the Wolves by a 33-1 margin, including a 24-1 margin in shots on goal.
Freshman Jayln Yates and senior Amy Hegarty combined for the shutout, but the duo didn't record any saves as the Mines back line defense recorded the only save for the Orediggers in the contest.
The squad will open up the home portion of its schedule on Thursday when it hosts Eastern New Mexico at 2 p.m. at the CSM Soccer Stadium.
