Women’s Soccer Opens NAC Play at Rockford
- Concordia University Wisconsin's women's
soccer team begins Northern Athletics Conference play Tuesday
afternoon at 4 p.m. against Rockford College at Smith Athletic
The Falcons (0-1-0) are looking to avenge a 5-1 season-opening loss to UW-Whitewater last Thursday on their home turf, Fitting Field. The defending WIAC Champions opened the contest with three goals in the first 47:44, before senior Kelli Wittenberg (Sturtevant, Wis.) tallied her first goal of the season, assisted by sophomore Ashley Apazeller (Jackson, Wis.).
Junior Samantha Anacker (Janesville, Wis.) made her second career start - first as the full-time goalkeeper - and recorded five saves.
Last season CUW jumped on Rockford early with a pair of goals and tacked on three more during a six minute span to cruise to a 10-0 home victory. Emily Waldorf finished with a hat trick, while junior Chelsea Driver (Greenwood, Ind.), Abby Hoeflich, and Becky Ott each recorded a pair of assists.
The Falcons return home on Saturday for a non-conference matchup against Lake Forest College at 1 p.m. at Fitting Field.
