OLLU Downs Mountaineers

Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) women has continued their good form as they managed their sixth straight shutout win on Sunday. The Saints managed a 2-0 win easily against NCAA Division III side Schreiner University in Kerrville.

It didn’t take long for the Saints to get control of the match as they went on the attack from the opening whistle. Jackie Lambarida was a main target for OLLU as she was leading the shot count in the early stages but her finishing was wayward.

The wasteful finishing was looking like staying the story of the half as the Saints were unable to break down the Mountaineers. But in the 39th minute the Saints finally broke through when Erica Robertson found the back of the net, sending OLLU in to the half ahead.

Things followed much the same trend in the second half as OLLU controlled the chances throughout the second half. Despite that Schreiner had the best chance in the 67th minute as Victoria Favela got space to get a shot away and beat the keeper with her shot but could only find the crossbar.

But OLLU eventually got through for the goal to seal their win as Victoria Castro was able to get the ball in to the back of the net. That required Schreiner to go for the match and they went to the bench looking to bring on attacking players.

Despite those attacking change, the Saints were still dominant as they kept on attacking and kept hunting for goals. That gave OLLU an easy 2-0 victory that could well have been bigger had they have been more clinical with their finishing.
