WOMEN'S SOCCER DEFEATS SAN JOSE STATE, 1-0; WINS THIRD STRAIGHT GAME
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sophomore transfer Jordyn Rolling scored her first goal in a Hornet uniform in the 58th minute and the Sacramento State women's soccer team defeated San Jose State, 1-0, on Friday afternoon at Hornet Field.
Jordyn Rolling scored in the 58th minute to lead Sacramento State to a 1-0 victory.
The Hornets won their third straight game and improved to 4-5 on the year while San Jose State slid to 0-7.
After a throw in from Jessica Castano deep in San Jose State territory, Rolling, a native of Eden, Utah, who transferred from Virginia Commonwealth, took a touch around one defender and fired a rocket shot toward the far post that escaped the outstretched hands of Spartans keeper Meghan Maiwald.
The Hornets have won three straight games by one goal each and have scored four goals in the last three games after being shut out four times in the first six games.
Each team took 12 shots while San Jose State had a 2-1 edge in corner kicks and 7-5 advantage in saves. The Hornets were whistled for 14 fouls while the Spartans drew 16 fouls.
Sacramento State has the rest of the weekend off before playing its final non-conference game of the season at Nevada next weekend.
