Clarksville, Ark. -- The Lady Eagles ended the season on a positive note with a 3-0 win over Schreiner University in American Southwest Conference women's soccer action on Saturday.
Ozarks (3-15-0, 3-10-0) dominated the match from the start, scoring twice in the first half and out shooting Schreiner (3-14-0, 2-11-0) 16-0 in the first 45 minutes of action. With the win, Ozarks gained their second shutout of the season and end the year winning three out of their final six. "The Schreiner match was probably our best match of the season," said head coach Justin Neese. "We came to a point in the season where we had progressed and we felt like we should start to winning matches like that. I think the end of the season was a whole lot more positive than the beginning of the season. We came on and got stronger and gained some confidence and played a lot better soccer. We have a good idea what it takes to compete. I think we are in touching distance of some of the playoff teams." Jessalyn Halsted scored in the 18th minute to give Ozarks a 1-0 lead. Amanda Bohon received the assist. The Lady Eagles tacked on another goal in the 34th minute when Mandi Carter scored on a feed from Halsted. The Lady Eagles’ final goal came when Terah McGill netted a shot in the 57th minute. Halsted received the assist. Ozarks out shot Schreiner 23-5. Nine different Ozarks’ players had shots, with Halsted racking up a team-best six. Becky Obermueller followed with five shots. Halsted had four shots on goal.
