Overall record improves with conference win
September 14, 2007
La Grande, OR - Playing in their Cascade Conference opener Friday afternoon, The Evergreen State College outlasted Eastern Oregon University in the second half to defeat the Mounties 3-1.
The first half left Eastern and Evergreen deadlocked at a goal a piece. Senior Maeve Dempsey scored unassisted for the Geoducks in our one first half goal while EOU's Tennly Paul-Bowden scored the only Mountie goal of the day.
After the mid-game break, The Mountaineers mounted a charge on the geoducks goal but their shots seemed to just miss the target or hitting the post.
Evergreen keeper Katie Cagle had 4 saves during the game.
In the 76th minute freshman Monica Ragan took advantage of the Mounties missed opportunities and scored the go ahead goal. It was Ragan's first goal in her college career and first game this season.
An Eastern foul in the late minutes set Evergreen up for a penalty kick. Jamie Scholtens, a second year at Evergreen, tallied her first collegiate goal as she snuck her shot past the Mounties keeper.
Scholtens goal sealed the game and Evergreen improves their overall record to 2-3-0.
Tomorrow the team heads into Caldwell, ID to do battle with the Yotes of Albertson College.
