PORTLAND – The Washington women’s soccer team took down the Central Michigan Flying Chippewas 2-0 on Sunday, in the final round of play at the Nike Portland Invitational.
Both Husky goals came from freshman Becca Schoales and were assisted by Lindsay Elston.
The first, in the 26th minute, was from a clean shot in the box. The second goal came off an Elston cross from the left that Schoales headed into the net in the 53rd minute.
“We played well for 90 minutes today and Becca Schoales helped our team breaking the goal-scoring drought,” UW coach Lesle Gallimore said. “We created opportunities on a very organized CMU defense using patience.”
