The Southwest Minnesota State soccer team defeated St. Cloud State 3-1 Monday in St. Cloud with the help of a pair of goals by sophomore midfielder Kayla Williams.
The win moves the Mustangs to 2-0 on the season. It is the first time the program has ever started a season 2-0.
Freshman forward Kendahl Fisher opened the scoring quickly, knocking in a goal for the Mustangs in the fifth minute of action. Williams added a second goal for SMSU in the 27th minute off an assist from Miranda Cadena, who scored two goals in the Mustangs' 3-0 season-opening win over Nebraska-Kearney on Friday.
The Huskies cut SMSU's lead in half in the 68th minute when Bailly Grayton kicked a shot past Mustang goalkeeper Sonya Smith. But in the 87th minute, Williams secured the win with her second goal of the game.
The Mustangs (2-0 overall) will begin Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play at 7 p.m. Friday at the Regional Event Center against conference newcomer Sioux Falls (0-2).
