For the second time in three matches the Oklahoma Wesleyan University women’s soccer team surged to a double-digit victory.
Paced by Laura Maria with three goals and a Lady Eagle defense that could give Scrooge and the Grinch lessons in stinginess, the Lady Eagles put the cork on York, 10-0, up in York, Neb., on Saturday.
York didn’t even get one shot off.
OKWU — which is ranked No. 8 in the nation — shut out an opponent for the seventh time. The Lady Eagles have outscored their opponents, 43-1.
Naroa Domenech added two goals, followed by one each by Juliana Viera, Joelle Meister, Jacye Rupe and Jenn Vick and Ara Prieto. Four different players produced assists, led by Summer Miles with two.
