MOORHEAD, Minn. – The St. Thomas women's soccer team scored two goals on just three shots in the first half of a 3-0 win over Concordia at the Jake Christiansen Athletic Complex on Tuesday afternoon.
With the win, the Tommies improve to 9-2-1 overall and 5-2-0 in the MIAC, while the Cobbers fall to 4-7-1 overall and 2-5-0 in league play.
St. Thomas wasted little time getting on the scoreboard, scoring in the fourth minute on a Mallory DeBoom goal. DeBoom's ninth goal of the year came on an assist from senior Brielle Bierman. DeBoom fired a shot from the left side of the 18 and tucked it in the opposite corner to put the Tommies on top 1-0.
Just over 21 minutes in, DeBoom went from scorer to the helper, assisting on a goal by Brie Bourdage on St. Thomas's second shot of the game. Bourdage let go a shot from the top of the box and found the lower right corner to score her second goal of the year.
St. Thomas kept the 2-0 lead heading to the break and throughout the second half until the final minute of the game. With just four seconds left, Elizabeth Luotto scored off a corner kick to stamp the score final at 3-0.
Although the Tommies put up just three shots in the first half, all of which were on goal, they came out to tally 10 shots in the second half, including seven on target to bring the final count to 13-2 in shots and 10-1 in shots on goal. St. Thomas also held the edge in corner kicks (4-1).
In net, freshman Katie Lynn recorded her seventh shutout of the year after making just one save. Maddy Reed suffered the loss for the Cobbers in a seven-save effort.
