ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- The SVSU Women's Soccer team, ranked No. 16 in the latest United Soccer Coaches Top 25 national poll, posted a solid 2-0 road regional victory at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. The Cardinals battled adverse weather to score a single goal in each half for the two-goal win.
The first half came to a close with the Cardinals leading 1-0. Lindsay Stroebel connected for her second goal of the season, using a nice feed from Valentina Giambanco. It was Giambanco's second helper on the early season as well.
SVSU pushed the lead to 2-0 in the second half after Molly Vanderhoff scored her second goal of the 2018 campaign unassisted. That 2-0 count would prove to be the final for Friday night's matchup.
Alyssa Watts (3-0) picked up the victory between the posts, helping lead the Cards to the team's second clean sheet of the season.
Saginaw Valley remains in St. Louis, where they will face another regional and GLVC opponent on Sunday (Sep. 9). First kick for that matchup is set for 12:00 pm EDT.
