Bluejay women go 1-1 for the week

After losing Thursday, the Tabor College women?s soccer team concluded the week with a 5-1 victory over York Saturday.

?We made a point to come out early and attack,? coach Ian Thomson said. ?We have been on the defensive in the last few games, so the theme for this game was execution. And we put on a clinic in execution.?

Tabor scored twice within the first five minutes, first when Lillian Bear scored in the second minute after being assisted by Anna Friesen and then on a Nicole Stevenson goal assisted by Bear in the third minute.

The Bluejays increased their lead when Ashtyn Stephens scored, assisted by Amy Vaughan, in the 12th minute.

York managed a goal in the 19th minute, but Tabor took a 3-1 lead into halftime.

Stevenson tacked on a goal in the 66th minute, assisted by Bear and Spring Jones; and Jessica Renzelman capped scoring in the 86th minute with a goal assisted by Stephens.

Tabor outshot York 36-7, including 24-6 on goal. Goalkeeper Kalee Cross had five saves.

USAO?Tabor dropped a 3-1 loss to the University of Science and Arts of Okla?homa Thursday.

?It was a great team effort,? coach Ian Thomson said. ?We just ran out of gas and lost focus.?

After a scoreless first half, the Drovers scored all three goals in an 11-minute span before Tabor got on the board in the 87th minute with a Jessica Renzelman goal assisted by Amy Vaughan.

?Jess scored a nice goal late,? Thomson said. ?We played hard and pushed to get that goal despite being down 3-0. That says a lot about our heart and drive.?

USAO outshot Tabor 32-4, including 8-2 shots on goal. Goalkeeper Kalee Cross had five saves.

Coming?Tabor (2-2) was scheduled to play at Southwestern Christian Tuesday and will host Manhattan Christian College Friday at 6:30 p.m.
