Waxahachie, Texas- October 17, 2015- Wayland Baptist University topped the Southwestern Assemblies of God University (SAGU) women’s soccer team, 3-1.  SAGU dropped to 7-7 for the season and 1-4 in the Sooner Athletic Conference (SAC).  WBU is 3-5-3 overall and 2-1-2 in the SAC.

“I thought we played well and we moved the ball forward.  We also gave away fewer corners which is positive.  We were just a little disconnected in the attacking third,” explains head coach Mandy Fortner .

WBU scored in the 16 th minute off of a free kick about 10 yards outside the 18.  The Lady Pioneers went up, 1-0.

Nearly five minutes into the second half, Wayland’s Jodian Morris scored, making it 2-0.

The Lady Lions were able to cut the score to 2-1, after Samantha Gonzales assisted Nadine Jaimes in a goal at 51:39.  Jaimes now has 11 goals for the season.

In the 70 th minute of play, WBU’s Annysa Plata scored the final goal, making it 3-1.

SAGU had 17 shots compared to Wayland’s 11.  SAGU goal keeper Kathleen Espinoza had four saves while allowing three goals.  WBU’s Bailey Stenger had nine saves while allowing one goal.

“When you shoot 17 times and score once, that is a problem,” says Fortner, “We will work on finishing.  We controlled the game pretty well and we moved the ball well, which we will hope to do in the next game too.”

On Tuesday, October 20, 2015, SAGU will host Mid-America Christian University .  Game time is at 2:00pm.  MACU is currently 5-5-1 overall and 2-1-1 in the SAC.
