WOMEN'S SOCCER EARNS ROAD SWEEP, KNOCKS OFF EASTERN WASHINGTON, 1-0
CHENEY, Wash. - The Sacramento State women's soccer team won it's second consecutive Big Sky Conference road game this weekend when the Hornets defeated Eastern Washington, 1-0, on Sunday afternoon at EWU Sports and Rec Field.
Jordyn Rolling scored her third goal of the season and the Hornets won at EWU, 1-0.
The Hornets improved to 6-7 (2-1 Big Sky) with the win while the Eagles fell to 1-10 (0-3). Sacramento State has now won five of its last seven games and is tied with Northern Colorado for the third best league record in the eight-team Big Sky Conference.
Jordyn Rolling scored her third goal and second game-winner of the season in the 64th minute. Rolling took a pass from Jordan Carlberg in the box and fired a low shot that skimmed the ground inside the left post.
Sacramento State keeper Savannah Abercrombie tallied a season-high eight saves while recording her 28th career shutout, easily the best in school and conference history.
The Hornets had a 19-14 edge in shots and 6-5 advantage in corner kicks. Sacramento also had more saves (8-6) and was whistled for four fewer fouls (13-17).
Eastern Washington received three yellow cards in the game while the Hornets were issued one.
Sacramento State will now begin a three-game homestand this coming Friday when head coach Randy Dedini's squad plays host to reigning regular season conference champion, Northern Arizona. The Hornets defeated the Lumberjacks, 1-0, in last season's Big Sky Tournament title game.
