SIOUX CITY, Iowa-- Phoebe Edwards (SO/Adelaide, Australia) and Connie Contreras (SR/Gilroy, Calif.) each had goals and Lauren Sayler (JR/Bismarck, ND) made five saves as the Jimmie women's soccer team remained undefeated with a 2-0 win over Briar Cliff (Iowa) Sunday afternoon.
HOW IT HAPPENED:
Edwards scored for the second straight day to gave the Jimmies a 1-0 lead in the eighth minute. Juliet Ramirez (JR/Fairfield, Calif.) assisted on the goal.
Jamestown held a 6-4 edge in total shots and also had a 5-3 advantage in shots on goal.
The Jimmies took a 1-0 lead into halftime, and looked for an insurance goal early in the second half. Contreras had a shot in the 55th minute that was turned away by Briar Cliff goalkeeper Libby Havenridge.
UJ kept the pressure on the Chargers, keeping the ball in the Briar Cliff end for much of the next 30 minutes. Ramirez nearly made it 2-0 in favor of the Jimmies, but her shot in the 77th minute caromed off the post. Dianne Miranda (SR/Tustin, Calif.) had a chance for goal, but her shot went wide of the net.
Briar Cliff had a chance for an equalizer in the 85th minute. Taylor Beaulieu's shot was saved by Sayler, and was just the second shot for the Chargers in the final forty-five minutes.
Contreras put the game on ice in the 89th minute with her first tally of the season.
HAT TRICK (3 TAKEAWAYS FROM SUNDAY'S MATCH):
1. The Jimmies registered their second clean sheet of the season, and have conceded just two goals in the first three games. Jamestown had eight clean sheets in 2016.
2. Contreras, who has the most career goals on this year's roster, scored for the 26th time in 52 career appearances, an average of a goal every other match.
3. UJ improved to 3-0 against Great Plains Athletic Conference (GPAC) opponents this season. The Jimmies, who will join the GPAC for the 2018 season, have four more matches against GPAC schools in 2017.
Jamestown (3-0) is on the road again next weekend, playing at Williams Baptist (Ark.) on September 2 and Central Methodist (Mo.) on September 4.
