Newburg, OR -- The 2017 season kicked off for the Women's Soccer program in Newburg, Oregon, on Friday, September 1st, against George Fox University.
The shot difference seemed to be the name of the game, as the Bucs were out shot 29-4, including a 19-0 barrage in the first half.
The Bruins would find the back of the net twice in the first half, at 37:06 and 38:50, respectively, to go up 2-0.
After the half, Junior Forward Genesis Dade would try her best to spark the Buccaneer offense, scoring at 51:02, on a goal after a corner kick.
Unfortunately, it wouldn't be enough, as George Fox University would add two insurance markers late in the game, off a shot from Emma Weme at 70:19 and an unfortunate rebound attempt from Brittany Bravo. Olivia Nasatir made the first save in that barrage, but was unable to retain the rebound, and Bravo would be able to put it in the back of the net.
Three goalies played for the Bucs, with Nasatir getting the decision with 44:10 played. She allowed 3 goals while making 3 saves. Freshman Connor Keegan-Lloyd would allow 1 goal, while making 7 saves in 37:06 played. Kaitlyn Erickson came on in relief with 8:44 played; 0 goals allowed, 0 saves.
The Bruins would split time in net, Kelsey Kammerzell would take the first 45:00, not registering a save or GA, while Annalisa Klein would finish the game in the 2nd, allowing 1 goal, and making 1 save.
The Bucs are still on the road in Oregon, traveling to Lewis and Clark University in Portland, on Sunday, for a 3:00 PT kick-off.
