Final Stats

The Eastern Washington University women's soccer team beat Lamar University, 5-0, at the Northern Arizona Mountain Classic (Friday, Aug. 31) to start 1-0 for the first time in school history.

This is the second time Eastern has ever scored at least five goals in a game. The last time was back on Oct. 11, 1997, against Carroll College in a 6-0 win. That was the first year of EWU's soccer program.

The first goal was at the 26:15 mark by junior Lauren Koelzer with an assist by senior Cyeeta Mott. The second score came from sophomore Kit Rood 30:13 into the game.

In the second half, sophomore Mandy Cheney had Eastern's third goal at the 61:16 mark with an assist by junior Lillian Bourret. In the 65th minute, Bourret then added a goal of her own. To wrap up the game, junior Megan Roper scored the last goal with 11 minutes left. Cyeeta Mott added the assist.

The Eagles out-shot Lamar, 27-4.

This is Lamar's first-ever game, as 2007 is the program's inaugural season.

The Eagles will play their second game of the tournament against Temple University at 11 a.m. (Sunday, Sept. 2).
