The Eastern Washington University women's soccer team broke the school record for most wins with eight, as the visiting Eagles beat the University of Montana 2-0 Friday (Nov. 2) in their last Big Sky Conference game of the season.
The previous record of seven was set by the 2004 team (7-9-2). The Eagles (8-8, 3-4 BSC) will look to break the .500 mark in their last game on Senior Day Sunday (Nov. 4) at 11 a.m. against Utah Valley State.
The Eagles came out strong with a goal in the 23rd minute by freshman Lauren Koelzer, her first of the season and her first game-winning goal.
The assist went to senior Cyeeta Mott, who is just one away from the career school record. Beth Russell (2002-05) holds the record at seven. Mott recorded four shots to bring her career total to 130, adding to her school record in that category. She has 53 this year, also a school mark.
Junior Abby Jensen scored the Eagles' second goal in the 30th minute with the assist by sophomore Mandy Cheney, the second of her career. That was Jensen's fifth goal of the season to tie her with the school record. Jensen holds that mark with Traci Jellison (2002) and Liz Hail (2001).
Freshman Jessica Blessard had her second shutout of the season. Blessard has only played in eight games with a total of 29 saves.
The Eagles tallied a total of 15 shots, while Montana (3-12-2, 1-4-2 BSC) had 10.
