The Gustavus Adolphus women’s soccer team got their second win in as many days Saturday, scoring in the second minute of the game and holding on for a 1-0 win at UW-Whitewater. Senior forward Amy Larson (Bloomington, Minn.) scored the game’s lone goal, heading in a cross off the foot of junior forward Jenna Iaizzo (White Bear Lake, Minn.). First-year Kelsey Deitz (Owatonna, Minn.) made six saves to pick up the win in her first collegiate game.
Iaizzo and Whitewater’s Julia Capel each fired off a game-high four shots. Larson and UWW senior forward Lindsay Kohlbeck each got off three shots and Gustie forward Chelsea Craven (Fy., Sauk Rapids, Minn.) finished with a pair of shots.
The Warhawks outshot the Gusties 12-11, while Gustavus held a 7-4 advantage in corner kicks.
The Gusties, now 2-0 on the season, have won five straight games dating back to last season and will host Grinnell at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9 in the first home event on the Gustavus intercollegiate athletics calendar.
