St. Peter, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team allowed three first half goals in a 4-0 loss to St. Thomas at the Gustie Soccer Field on Saturday afternoon.  With the loss, the Gusties drop to 5-6-0 (1-5-0 MIAC), while the Tommies improve to 6-6-0 (3-3-0 MIAC).

St. Thomas opened the match with two goals in the first 15 minutes and would never look back.  Morgan McConachie scored the first goal of the match at the 8:59 mark to put the Tommies on top 1-0 before Nicole Sheehan followed with a goal at the 14:35 mark.  The third goal of the half came 40:32 into the opening frame, giving St. Thomas a 3-0 lead heading into halftime.

The Tommies added another goal in the 49th minute just after halftime when Nicole Lenz scored to give St. Thomas a 4-0 lead, which is where it would stay for the remainder of the afternoon.

For the day, St. Thomas outshot Gustavus 11-3, including a 7-1 advantage in the first half.

Caroline Olson (Jr., York, Pa.) was given the loss after playing 45:00 and giving up three goals in the first half.  Jenny Grahek was awarded the win.

The Gusties will next take to the road for a conference match at St. Catherine on Wednesday, Oct. 15th.  That match is set for a 4:00 p.m. start.

“Today was not our best performance out on the field, but it’s not something to hang our heads for the rest of the season about,” mentioned Head Coach Laura Burnett-Kurie.  “All in all, accountability is the foundation of every successful team, and today we had a game that proves to us that we need to perform better to reach our potential.  Our eyes are set on the next practice and playing to our own highest standards.”
