WILDER, Ky. – The Northern Kentucky University women’s
soccer team put on an offensive clinic on Sunday as eight different
NKU players notched goals in a 10-0 defeat of Saint Joseph’s.
Norse (8-2, 4-2 Great Lakes Valley Conference) started the scoring
when Kelly Sullivan picked up a loose ball inside the box and slid
it back to Amie Noll for a 15-yard blast, giving Noll her first
goal of the year just 98 seconds into the game.
The goal would hold
through the halftime, after which NKU got on the board early once
again when Ashley Warndorf took a pass from
Brandi Doss and beat SJC (1-10, 0-6 GLVC) goalkeeper Sarah Croskey
to find the twine for the second time this season in the 47th
Freshman Jessica Page
added a tally of her own in the 56th, after Doss and Samantha Sutkamp
teamed up for a tic-tac-toe passing
play that ended with Page’s third marker of the year.
Warndorf added her second of the game 10 minutes later, cleaning
up a Kara Costello rebound to extend the lead to four and officially
open the floodgates, as the Norse would score six goals during
the next 10 minutes.
Maggie Smith, Sullivan, Kara Costello,
Hannah Wissel and Kelly Snead would all put shots in the net as
NKU went on to its
win of the season. The Norse outshot the Pumas, 35-1, as neither
Angela Healy nor Samantha Glass had to make a save in defense
of the NKU net.
The 10-goal outpouring was the most since Sept.
9, 2001, when the Norse hung 12 goals against Wheeling Jesuit en
