LOVES PARK, Ill. - The women's soccer team took the field on Sunday looking to bring its record back to .500 against MacMurray College, and they did just that. The Rockford University Regents dominated the pace of the game and came out on top, with a score of 2-1.
The score was not a direct reflection of the Regents dominance in the game. RU outshot the Highlanders 9-3 in the first half, and an astonishing 21-3 in the second half. Trailing 1-0 in the first, Lexie Collins (Earlville, Ill.) managed to find Erin Disanti (Rockford, Ill.) in the middle of the box, allowing Disanti to tie the game at one. The score would remain tied until 64 minutes into the game where Collins would score the game winner on a great ball from Giovana Ortega (Rockford, Ill.). Ortega had herself a quality day as she managed to play multiple through balls to teammates contributing to the teams scoring chances. Sarah Maguire of Webster University put together a nice game as she saved 17 shots, and managed to keep the score close. The Regents put together a great game and a win to show for it as they advanced to 3-3 on the year.
The Rockford University women's soccer team gets back to action on Wednesday September 13 as they host Dominican University. The match is scheduled for a start time of 7:00 PM.
