Sophomore forward Lauren Sollestre (Farmington Hills, Mich. / Marian) scored in the game's final minute against Concordia Universtiy of Chicago on Saturday (Sept. 8) to give Alma its first win of the year. The Scots dropped their next game 1-0 to the Illinois Institute of Technology.
Calvin traveled to the Pacific Northwest last weekend and remained unbeaten on the season under first-year head coach Emily Ottenhoff, defeating the University of Puget Sound 1-0 and tying Pacific Lutheran 1-1. Both games went overtime and were played in Tacoma, Washington. Calvin sophomore Maria Vanderlei scored in both games. She scored the game-winner in the 95th minute of Calvin's win over Puget Sound. The goal was the first of her collegiate career.
Rachael Braginton made sure a return to the alma mater of Hope College women's soccer coach Leigh Sears was a successful one. The senior from Grandville, Michigan (Grandville HS) equaled her career-high with two goals and set a career mark with two assists in a 4-0 Flying Dutch victory at Ohio Wesleyan on Saturday in Delaware, Ohio. Hope improved to 3-0 on the season.
The Kalamazoo College women's soccer team finished the week with a 2-1 record to improve its overall record to 3-2. The Hornets had a strong week against very tough opponents including matches against No. 2 Chicago and No. 15 Wheaton. Sophomore goalie Hannah Wolfe was named MIAA Defensive Player of the Week after saving 21 shot attempts and completing two road shutouts this weekend. Joy Hunziker joined Wolfe as the MIAA Offensive Player of the Week as she posted seven points including two goals on the week.
The Olivet College women's soccer team posted a 1-1-1 record last week. In a 6-0 win at Manchester Sept. 5, six different players scored a goal, and six different players added an assist. The Comets tied Anderson (Ind.) University, 0-0, before losing to Dominican (Ill.) University, 3-0, to wrap up the week.
The Belles split results with a 2-0 win at Defiance on Wednesday and a 3-0 setback at home against an undefeated Augustana side on Saturday. The shutout at Defiance was the first for the Belles soccer program since a 0-0 double overtime tie at Adrian while it was the first shutout victory for Saint Mary's since a 1-0 win over Trine in 2014. Maya Cole registered the game-winning goal against the Yellow Jackets as five players tallied their first collegiate point for the Belles in the win.
Trine University dropped a close match to Rose-Hulman in their lone contest of the week by the score of 1-0. Despite her second loss, freshman Jillian Rejczyk (Wauconda, Ill. / Wauconda) continues to impress in her duties as keeper.
