EUREKA, Ill. – The Pomeroy Women's Soccer Team recorded their first win of the season in spectacular fashion, defeating Eureka College 7-0 and moving to 1-2 on the season. The squad scored early and often as they were led by Sophomores Alexis Pflum and Carra Matherly.

  • Sophomore Shelby Joy wrapped up the night with a goal in the 66th minute (assisted by Lanee Andrews) before the Pomeroys rode out the clock.

By the Numbers

  • Freshman Lanee Andrew took an impressive 16 shots, 8 on goal
  • Keeper Megan Benefiel enjoyed a slower night with 1 save on 1 shot and 0 goals allowed
  • Alexis Pflum now has 3 goals in as many games this season

Quote | Head Coach Craig Hendry

"We played quite well at times but we need to learn to be patient and make better decisions. There were occasions in the first half when we tried to force it through, rather than shifting it to the other side. We did better on this in the second half. All in all, we had decent performances all over the field today."

What's Next?

The Woods squad has a few days off before traveling to play Jefferson College (1-1) on September 8th at 1:00 P.M. EST.
