Women’s soccer set to play two with season winding down

It has been a tremendous year for the No. 19 Minnesota State soccer team. They are 13-2 overall and 10-2 in their conference.

Reflecting on the year, forward Jenny Vetter leads the team in almost every statistical category, except in assists, which is held by sophomore Brynn Desens with nine. 

Redshirt senior Alexa Rabune has played well between the goalposts this season and sits at an 11-1 record. She leads the NSIC in saves with 52 and wins.

Their defenders deserve credit as well, not allowing the opponent’s offense to score at all and contributing to nine shutouts on the year.

This Friday, the Mavericks will be taking on Augustana. Augustana has been playing really well as of late, winning nine of their last 10 games, with their recent game being an overtime loss to Bemidji State. 

Seniors Claire Dahm and Grace Behm lead the Vikings in points and goals, six and 13 respectively. 

Following the match with Augustana, Minnesota State takes on Wayne State in Nebraska. Wayne State is coming off a win against Minnesota Crookston, but on the year, they are 6-5-4. The Wildcats will do their best on the home turf, but the Mavericks may leave Nebraska with a win.

The Mavericks are 14-0 in the history of these two teams playing. MSU will be looking to push that total to 15 games.

In the last matchup they played in 2018, Minnesota State won 3-1. This was the first time they led up a goal against the Wildcats since 1998.

Minnesota State will conclude its season against Concordia-St. Paul at home on Nov. 8.
