Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) women’s soccer Jarvis Christian College

“I’m Proud of our resilience throughout the game,” explains head coach Paul Hason, “We faced the most physical team we’ve played thus far, who had a strong goalkeeper who kept them in the game.  We continue to dominate that we have multiple players who are a scoring threat if given the opportunity.”

Hason was correct about Jarvis’ goalkeeper.  SAGU was able to get off 27 shots, and 16 of those were shots on goal.   JCC’s Elaine Salazar had 11 saves for the game.

SAGU only scored once in the first half when Kenley Nichols scored in the seventh minute of play.

In the second half, the Lady Lions were able to strike.  Within a ten minute period, from the 68 th minute to the 78 th minute, SAGU scored three goals. Laura Sturgeon assisted Nadine Jaimes in her 12 th goal of the season.  Next, Rachel Freed scored, followed up by Laura Sturgeon.

Sturgeon, Jaimes and Sierra Sabido each had three shots on goal.

SAGU goalkeeper Kathleen Espinoza had two saves.

On Tuesday, September 27, 2016, the Lady Lions will begin Sooner Athletic Conference play.  They will travel to play Wayland Baptist (1-4) at 3pm.
