OTTAWA – The Kansas Wesleyan Women's Soccer team used a pair of second half goals to knock off the Ottawa University Braves 2-1 on Saturday night at Peoples Bank Field in Ottawa. With the win, the Coyotes remain unbeaten in the KCAC at 7-0 and extend their KCAC regular season unbeaten streak to 26 matches, going 25-0-1 over that time span.
After a scoreless first half things got going for both teams in the second 45 minutes. Ottawa got on the board first in the 52nd minute when Jordan Tapia scored with a header right in front of the goal off an assist from Morgan Trupp.
Wesleyan was quick to answer back to tie things up. Kelsey Strang received a pass from Crystal Sanchez and scored from the left side to the far post in the 56th minute for the equalizer. Four minutes later, Melissa Martinez nailed the game winning goal, getting a breakaway opportunity and dribbling the ball across the penalty area and shooting past the Ottawa keeper for the goal.
The Coyotes narrowly outshot the Braves 16-15, led by Martinez and Strang with four each. Emily Tielrooy picked up another win in the goal for the Coyotes with five saves.
Wesleyan will close out the regular season with a pair of home matches. The Coyotes host Sterling College next Saturday at 1 p.m. at Salina Stadium and then close the regular season on November 5 against Saint Mary.
