MSU women’s soccer improved to 9-2 on the season after shutting down Southwest Minnesota State and Sioux Falls this past weekend.

On Oct. 11, MSU took on the Mustangs of SMSU and defeated them 5-1.

Sophomore Jenny Vetter stole the show in the first game and added the first two goals of the game.  She continues to show out this season, playing a large role in the Mavericks game. Vetter was assisted by senior Anna Mixon on her first goal.

Freshman Allie Williams was assisted by redshirt sophomore Brooke Valiukas for the third goal of the game.

A few minutes later, freshman Abby Begin scored the fourth goal of the game, assisted from Williams. Williams would finish the day with two assists, later assisting on sophomore Sydney Deprenger’s goal, which pushed the final score to 5-1.

Goalie Alexa Rabune continued her dominance this season, allowing just one goal and saving four shots.

The second game of the weekend was a shutout, thanks to the help of Rabune and freshman Mackenzie Rath. These two helped save three shots from the Cougars, helping the Mavericks to a 5-0 win – the team’s sixth shutout of the season.

Offensively, Vetter once again added to her season total, collecting another two-goal game of the weekend. She’s upped her total to nine goals on the season. Along with her two goals against USF, Vetter added three assists, playing a part in all five goals in the game.

The other three goals were scored from Williams, sophomores Nadia Lowery and Brynn Desens. 

The Mavericks will be looking to push their total to 11 wins this weekend against Minnesota Crookston and Bemidji State at home.
