EPHRAIM, Utah—The Snow College women’s soccer team came out with victories last weekend in two home games against the College of Southern Nevada (CSN).

The game on Friday, Oct. 6, ended in an easy win for the Lady Badgers. They started out right when freshman Sophie Stewart assisted her fellow freshman Jaycee Hafen in driving in the first goal of the game in only the sixth minute.

Stewart then scored two more goals in the 32nd and 53rd minutes, the first assisted by sophomore Nicole Jenkins and the second unassisted.

Just a minute later, sophomore Manae Izuhara took the ball for another goal, assisted by freshman Emily Adams.

Izuhara was followed by freshman Makensie Price in the 56th minute, who hit the net with the assistance of Stewart.

In the 65th minute, freshman Alexis VanOrden was given a penalty kick and scored the Snow’s 6th goal of the game. Sophie Stewart then finished the game with the Badgers seventh and final goal in the 90th minute.

Snow College didn’t let CSN score, resulting in a final score of 7-0.

“We started out a little slow,” captain Nicole Jenkins said. “But then we picked it up and in the end, we got the results we were looking for.”

Saturday’s game went just as smoothly. Sophie Stewart scored the first goal the third minute. Stewart hit the net twice more in the 57th and 62nd minutes.

Makensie Price finished up the game in the 72nd minute when she scored Snow’s fourth and final goal. The Lady Badgers once again held CSN scoreless and ended with a 4-0 win.

When asked how the team has progressed this season, Jenkins said, “We have learned how each other plays so we can play better as a team.”

The women compete on Thursday against Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC) in Rangely. The Badgers played CNCC twice earlier in the season and got easy victories both times.

The team will be back home to play Salt Lake Community College in Ephraim on Saturday. The Badgers played SLCC earlier in the season resulting in one win and one tie.

The upcoming games will give the team a chance to build on their five-game winning streak.
