Women’s Soccer Shut Out At Augsburg

Posted on October 7th, 2016 by


MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – The Gustavus women’s soccer team was shut out for the second game in a row as it fell by a score of 2-0 at Augsburg College Friday night at Edor Nelson Field.

With the loss the Gusties now move to 5-4-2 (2-4 MIAC), while the Auggies stay undefeated on their home turf and move to 9-2 (4-1 MIAC).

Gustavus was unable to generate a strong attack as it only recorded two shots on goal and 10 shots total. Coursey Edwards (Sr., Eden Prairie, Minn.) and Emily Skogseth (So., Burnsville, Minn.) each registered one shot on goal.

“We played well tonight, just struggled to get the reward of putting the ball in the back of the net,” said Head Coach Laura Burnett-Kurie.

The Auggies’ top scorer, Ashley St. Aubin put in a rebound goal after a shot from Ciara Gregory to record her 10th goal of the season at the 26th minute of the first period, which proved to be the game-winner. St. Aubin also led the Auggies with six shots, four being on net.

Around halfway through the second period, Ciara Gregory posted her second assist of the game after feeding Carter Denison who added an insurance goal to give Augsburg a 2-0 lead, in which Gustavus was unable to answer.

Augsburg outshot the Gusties 18-10, 10-2 shots on target. Gustavus and Augsburg each tallied four corner kicks.

Goalkeeper Ashley Becker (So., Farmington, Minn.) made eight saves as she suffered her fourth loss of the season.

“We can certainly take some positives away from this game and prepare for our next matchup. Every game in the MIAC is always a battle, never an easy game,” Burnett-Kurie said.

The Black and Gold return home next week to take on Saint Benedict at the Gustie Soccer Field, Tuesday, October 11.
