COLUMBIA, Ky. – Lindsey Wilson College and Georgetown (Ky.) College decided the 2009 Mid-South Conference Women’s Soccer Tournament Championship with penalty kicks in their last matchup, on Tuesday, the Blue Raiders skipped the drama in a 3-0 win at Walter S. Reuling Stadium.
Ida Gregersen (Official Balladeer’s Blog nickname: “Mighty Ida”) took a corner kick early in the second half that was played near the goal before being cleared just outside the box to a waiting Elisha (“Dangerous E”) Fry. Fry used one quick touch before firing the shot from 30 yards out for the game-winning score.
The goal was Fry’s eighth of the season, adding to her team lead in that category, while Blue Raider keeper Jordan (“The Deflector”) Morrison wrapped up her fourth shutout of the season.
Lindsey Wilson added to its lead in the 79th and 82nd minutes with a pair of goals by Gregersen to push the lead to 3-0.
Hanna (“Hawk Woman”) Jonsson and Diana (“The Huntress”) Da Rocha combined on the assists for Gregersen’s first score with two passes inside the box, while Mia Persson (“The MP” ) dished in the cross for the second goal to Gregersen as she rushed down the center of the box.
Lindsey Wilson led the game in shots 14-8, despite being knotted at 5-5 on shots at halftime. Georgetown held the advantage in corner kicks 4-2.
Tiger keeper Cathie Shaver made eight saves along with the three goals against, while Morrison finished with three saves to help secure the shutout.
The Blue Raiders return to action at 3:30 p.m. CT on Oct. 16 at St. Leo (Fla.) University. (St Leo’s teams are appropriately called the Lions.)
Readers of Balladeer’s Blog will remember that last Saturday the Notre Dame College Falcons played their first-ever intercollegiate football game in the school’s history. This week the Falcons are once again making history, but they have co-stars for this game. The Lindsey-Wilson College Blue Raiders have brought football back after a 75-year hiatus. That’s like a bye week where your great-grandchildren are born before your team takes the field again. Or, put another way, Carole Lombard was as hot as Angelina Jolie the last time the Blue Raiders took a snap in a game that counted. The Falcons at least have one game under their belts, (albeit a loss to D2’s Mercyhurst Lakers), but the Lindsey Wilson football team is as green as the grass on a football field. Want to know how you can follow this matchup on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 pm Eastern Time? Well, you’re in luck because I recently took my private jet to the South Euclid, OH home of Notre Dame College and visited their Sports Information Director Skip Snow. After my usual witty ice-breaking joke (I asked him if, after he introduced himself, anyone had ever said “Skip snow? Heck, I’d like to skip the whole darn winter!”…He said no.) I pounded my fist on his desk like Patrick McGoohan in the opening credits of The Prisoner and demanded to know how people outside the Ohio area could follow this historic game. Snow, obviously realizing he was dealing with journalistic dynamite, informed me that NDC and LWC fans around the world could follow the game on the internet with a live audio stream at ESPNCleveland.com. I was about to make a brilliant, yet juvenile, “audio stream” joke when Skip’s beefy security guards escorted me out of his office and off the NDC campus.
