SMSU soccer drops season finale to Wayne State

October 29, 2012

Wayne State beat the Southwest Minnesota State soccer team 2-0 on Sunday in the season finale for both teams.

It was a strong finish for a Wildcat team that entered Friday's match against Sioux Falls with just one Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference win. After the two victories, WSC finished 3-14-2 overall and 3-11-1 in NSIC action.

The loss marked the end to a disappointing finish for the Mustangs, who dropped four straight matches to close the season. It was their longest losing streak of the season. They finished the year 7-9-1 overall and 5-8-1 in NSIC play.

The Wildcats opened the scoring in the 12th minute when Kayli Hopper scored on an assist from Jordan Hobza. It was her fourth goal of the season. Kelly Voigt added WSC's second goal in the second half when she put in a header off of a corner kick from Mallory Hoyt.

WSC only put three shots on goal, but got two past SMSU goalkeeper Sonya Smith. SMSU, on the other hand, had 10 shots on goal, with Courtney True stopping all 10 shots.

SMSU finished 11th in the NSIC standings. The team's seven wins is the most since the 2004 season.
