Three Second Half Goals Propel Spartan Women to 3-0 Win over Allegheny

The Case Western Reserve University women's soccer team scored three second half goals on Tuesday evening to earn a 3-0 win against non-conference opponent Allegheny College at DiSanto Field in Cleveland, Ohio.

With the win, the Spartans end a two-game losing streak and improve to 6-4-0 overall. The Gators drop to 5-6-0 overall with the loss.

After a scoreless first half on Tuesday night, senior forward Maggie Tyma started the scoring early in the second half when she received a headed pass from senior forward Melanie Kukura. Tyme dribbled the pass down the left side of the field and laced a shot into the lower right side of the goal. The goal was her first of the season.

CWRU would add to their lead less than five minutes later at the 66:03 mark when junior forward Kimberly Chen gathered a shot from Tyma that was saved by the Allegheny keeper and hit it just past the keeper for her third goal of the season.

The Spartans wrapped up their scoring in the 80th minute when Chen launched a shot off of a free kick from approximately 30 yards out that just got past the fingertips of the Allegheny goalkeeper. The score was her second of the game and fourth of the season.

Sophomore goalkeeper Lauren Metz played the entirety of the game and made four saves. She improved to 6-4-0 on the year with the victory.

The Spartans finished the contest with 28 shots, including 15 on goal. Chen and Kukura led the CWRU attack with four shots on goal apiece.

Case Western Reserve will return to action against New York University in their conference home-opener on Saturday, October 6th. The match is slated for a 1:30 p.m. start.
