LTU Dominates New Program IU - Kokomo in 1-0 win; Mather Scores Lone Goal from an Assist by Jerovsek

The Lawrence Technological University women's soccer team won their third game in a row at home against the program Indiana University-Kokomo on Saturday, September 7th, 2019 with a 1-0 game. The Blue Devils went undefeated with their home stand so far this season, starting off with a 5-1 win against Rio Grande (Ohio) and then an 5-0 win against Point Park (Pa.).

The Blue Devils (3-1-0, 0-0-0) started off scoreless in the first half facing the Cougars (1-3-0, 0-0-0) on Saturday night, yet repeatedly took chances on net to no avail. Several chances included two back to back shots from the Blue Devils where the first shot hit the post and the second swept away by the Kokomo keeper. This happened twice on the night.

All over the field, LTU dominated the stat column, including 17 shots, 10 of which were on goal compared to the three put off by the Cougars. While both teams had a yellow card each, the team remained aggressive on the field.

The lone goal occurred in the second, early on in the half, a quick go ahead pass from Freshman Dahlia Jerovsek found the veteran Katelyn Mather to kick it past the Kokomo goalie, securing the win. While defense had a rather quiet night in Southfield, Rebecca Almandoz had two saves and Renee Anderson grabbed one stop on the night, splitting the time in net.

Up next for the Lawrence Tech Blue Devils is a trip to face Alma College (Mich.) on September 11th where kick off is set for 4:00 p.m.. The Scots of Alma (2-1-0, 0-0-0) this season have won two games in a row against Hiram College (Ohio) and Heidelberg University (Ohio) at a margin of 2-0. They have another game between now and when the Blue Devils see them against Mount St. Joseph (Ohio) on September 8th.
