Solid Defense Helps Lead @JWUWSoccerNM Over Webber International, 2-0

The JWU women's soccer team (5-4, TSC 2-2) picked up an important Sun Conference victory on Saturday against the Warriors of Webber International (4-2, TSC 2-2) by the score of 2-0.  The Lady Wildcats got crucial goals from Fr. Savannah Jackson and Jr. Yaneli Montes.  Jackson's goal was her 3rd goal in conference play and her 11th of the season.  Jackson's goal on Saturday was assisted by So. Midfielder Karen Rodriguez, which is Rodriguez's 3rd assist in 2 games.  Montes' goal on Saturday came late in the 2nd half after being fouled in the WIU penalty box and she would step up and convert the PK. 

"The team was fantastic today, they worked extremely hard today and fought for 90 minutes," commented Head Coach Eric Dobrzanski.  "Our team did a great job of owning and winning their role, I am so proud of each and every player.  Our defending was fantastic today, everyone did their job very well.  This win gives us a great opportunity moving forward, we just need to stay focused on what we are trying to accomplish and get ready for a very good Florida Memorial team this coming Wednesday."

The Lady Wildcats will now host cross-town Florida Memorial University (1-5, TSC 0-4) this Wednesday Oct. 4th at 1pm.
