STEVENS POINT (WAOW) – Reigning Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) women's soccer Player of the Week Sammy Greer scored her team-leading fourth goal of the season on Wednesday afternoon to help lift the Pointers to a 1-0 win over the Eagles of Edgewood College.
Greer tallied the game's lone goal at the 40 minute mark of the opening half, sending home a pass from Jennifer Jobke and into the back of the net for the 1-0 edge.
In the second half the Pointer defense allowed just two Eagle shots, none on target, holding on for the nonconference victory.
UW-Stevens Point has now won all 10 meetings between the two schools on the soccer pitch.
Brittany Marx tallied just one save on the afternoon to secure her fourth victory of the season, her third by way of shutout.
UW-Stevens Point (4-1) opens conference play on Saturday, Sept. 17 when the Blugolds of UW-Eau Claire come to Stevens Point for a 1 p.m. kick-off at the Point Soccer Bowl. Fans are encouraged to bring items to the game the team will then donate to care packages for troops.
