DWU soccer teams shut out by Jamestown
The Dakota Wesleyan University women's soccer team hosted Jamestown on Thursday at the Pepsi-Cola Soccer Complex, but playing on its home field wasn't such an advantage, as the Tigers dropped the Great Plains Athletic Conference tilt, 2-0.
Jamestown struck in the early part of both halves to gain an edge in what was a true defensive struggle. The Jimmies doubled DWU in shots on goal, but the two teams combined for just six in the entire game.
Kristin Breaux scored 3:25 into the game to give Jamestown (6-4-1, 3-1-1 GPAC) the lead, but the remainder of the first half was a stalemate. The Tigers weren't able to break through and Breaux struck again in the early moments of the second half. She took a pass from Kirstyn Aldridge and sent it past Hannah Bowes in the 53rd minute.
Bowes made two saves for Dakota Wesleyan (3-6, 1-3 GPAC), which plays at Hastings on Saturday.
