MONMOUTH, ILL.-Forward Alayna Bailey scored two goals as the Central College women’s soccer won its third straight game Wednesday Sept. 17, 3-1 over Monmouth (Ill.).
The Dutch and the Fighting Scots (3-2) were scoreless at halftime. The two teams tied in first-period shots (5-5), but Monmouth led in shots on goal (5-2) and corner kicks (2-1).
Monmouth struck first on a Central own goal less than seven minutes into the second period.
The Dutch responded nearly four minutes later, as Bailey scored off of a corner kick by midfielder Emily Saville.
The score remained 1-1 for more than 20 minutes. Goalkeeper Sydney Lunardi preserved the tie with a save that deflected off the post. Kobylinski said the play inspired the team.
Shortly thereafter, midfielder Alyssa Fuller scored the eventual game-winning goal, her second goal of the season. Bailey added the exclamation point with her fifth goal over the past two games.
Bailey led the offensive attack with five shots, four shots on goal and two goals. Lunardi made 10 saves, the most in any of her four starts.
The Dutch moved to 5-2 overall with the triumph.
