Owens Soccer Beats Delta

Posted: Updated:

Jaime Sesock scored the game winning goal just before the end of the first half as the Express women's soccer team avenged an earlier defeat with a 2-1 win over Delta College.

Just minutes into the match, Delta's Kay Green scooped up a ball that the Express failed to clear in front of the net to put the Pioneers up 1-0 at the 3:09 mark.

Kendra Eitniear would answer minutes later, however, for the Express as she took a crossing shot from Drew Plummer off her stomach and into the net to tie the match at the 7:55 mark.

Then, 44:03 into the match, Sesock faked a defender and took a shot from about 20 yards out. The ball deflected off the hands of Delta's starting goalkeeper, Michelle Sheperd, and over her head to put the Express up 2-1.

Plummer got the assist on Eitniear's goal, while Sesock's was unassisted.

Owens controlled play for the most part as they had 10 shots on goal, compared to just two for Delta. Sheperd, who played the first half, made four saves for Delta, while Courtney Neiderquill made five saves in the second half.

Erika Brinkman started and played all 90 minutes in goal for the Express. She made two saves.

With the win, the Express improve to 6-2-2 overall and 5-1-1 in Region XII. The Pioneers fall to 6-3-0 overall and 5-2-0 in Region XII. The win also put the Express back on top of the Region XII standings, which helps for postseason seeding.
