The Drover women forced their fourth shut out of the season on Friday against Saint Gregory’s at Drover Pitch with a final score of 6-0.
The University of Science and Arts women spent most of the game on the attack and scored their first goal at the 15:03-minute marker when Brittany Jay netted the ball with an assist by Taylor Fain.
Just three minutes later, a foul against Calli Cooper set her up for a penalty kick, which pushed the score to 2-0.
Jay kicked her second goal of the day a several minutes later at 24:45, with assists from Cooper and Gabby Martinez.
It took the women only five minutes to score again when Cooper found an open Fain, who blew the ball past Saint Gregory’s goalie, Jennifer Taber, for a fourth Drover goal.
Despite spending most of the next 43 minutes in the Cavaliers’ territory, the women could not score again until 73:45 when Cooper, off an assist from Fain, whizzed the ball by SGU’s goalkeeper.
Not even two minutes later, Martinez found Fain, who drove the ball and punched it in to give the Drovers their final goal of the game.
The win pushed the Drovers’ record to 9-3 overall and 3-1 in the conference. The women kept their No. 1 position in the conference. NAIA rankings are released each Tuesday.
The Drovers were coming off of a loss to Southern Nazarene two weeks ago. Last week’s game against Oklahoma Baptist was postponed until Nov. 2 because of rain.
The women face off against Rogers State at 5 p.m. Tuesday in Claremore before returning home Saturday to play John Brown at 1 p.m.
