McCOY'S TWO GOALS LEADS WOMEN'S SOCCER TO 4-0 WIN OVER EASTERN WASHINGTON
CHENEY, Wash. - Behind two goals from senior Katie McCoy, Sacramento State recorded its first road victory of the season, defeating Eastern Washington, 4-0, on Sunday, Oct. 21.
With the win, the Hornets improve their overall record to 8-3-4, including a 2-0-2 mark in the Big Sky Conference, while Eastern Washington falls to 6-7-0 and 1-3-0 in the Big Sky.
Sacramento State lit up the scoreboard in the 18th minute, as McCoy scored off of a pass from fellow senior Amanda Gray to give the Hornets a 1-0 lead that they would take into halftime.
In the second half, the Hornets poured it on, scoring three more goals in the final 45 minutes of play to account for the final outcome of 4-0.
McCoy struck first, again, in the second half, as in the 54th minute she took a feed from junior Missy Matzen and found the right side of the net to mark the margin 2-0. Less than six minutes later, in the 60th minute, Gray connected for a goal of a feed from Kim Kemper, giving her three points on the day.
The Hornets final goal came in the 83rd minute, when junior Sarah Howard scored off an assist from fellow junior Kara Taylor to make the final 4-0.
McCoy's two goals on the day give her 22 on her career, passing Jessica Mackiewicz (1998-99) for sole possession of third place all-time in Hornet history. Her nine goals on the season put her into a three-way tie for the fifth best single season output in program history. Her 25 points on the season ties Lisa Wrightsman for the fourth best season all-time. McCoy is already the programs all-time leader in assists with 22, and she ranks second in program history in points with 66 in her illustrious career.
Taylor, a two-time all-Big Sky selection as a defender, tallied the first point of her career in the 83rd minute.
Sophomore 'keeper Mandy Trojan recorded her second straight clean sheet, giving her six shutouts on the season. Trojan is one shutout away from tying Stacy Himes for the most single-season shutouts in school history.
The Hornets return to action on Friday, Oct. 26, as they travel to take on Northern Colorado at 6 p.m. Pacific time.
