Beavers Post 6-1 Victory Over Yale
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Oregon State women's soccer team opened its weekend in Connecticut with a 6-1 victory over Yale on Friday, extending its win streak to five on the season.
"I'm extremely proud of the team," said head coach Lauren Sinacola. "They started the game with so much intensity and focus and finished off the game the same way. Yale broke us down a bit and we will learn from those missteps and prepare for a tough contest on Sunday versus CCSU."
The Beavers came out strong early in the match. Freshman McKenna Martinez put the Beavers on the board with a goal at the 13-minute mark. Sophomore Amber Jackson scored her fourth goal of the season shortly after, at the 18-minute mark. In the 25th minute, junior Brianna McReynolds found the net to put OSU up 3-0 over Yale.
The Beavers scored three more goals in the second half. Martinez posted her second in the 50th minute and was assisted by Jackson. Shortly after, in the 54th minute, junior Sophie Conrad posted her first goal of the season. In the 60th minute, McReynolds posted her second goal of the night with an assist from junior Maddie Tetz.
Senior Bridgette Skiba recorded four saves in goal. In the 54th minute, sophomore Hailey Coll took over in goal, earning three saves. The Beavers took six corner kicks and tallied seven shots on goal out of 10 shots total.
The Beavers will continue their road stretch in New Britain, Conn., as they challenge Central Connecticut State on Sept. 5 at 9 a.m. (PT).
