Nevada Shuts Out Sacramento State 3-0 On Friday Night
Sept. 2, 2005
RENO, Nev. - Three second half goals from freshmen Randee Robinson (Port Orchard Wash.) Miranda Montejo (Riverside, Calif.) and junior Naomi Hernandez (North Las Vegas, Nev.) gave Nevada a 3-0 victory against the visiting Sacramento State Hornets Friday night at Mackay Stadium.
Robinson scored the Pack's game-winning goal in the 69th minute when a Sacramento State defender cleared the ball right to Robinson, who blasted a shot from 25 yards out to beat Hornet keeper Jenny Lawrence.
"Randee's goal was first-class," said Head Coach Terri Patraw of the freshman's first career goal. "Just brilliant."
Less than five minutes later, Montejo fired a long range shot at Lawrence who couldn't make a clean save and watched the ball bounce though her legs into the goal. The Pack found the back of the net for a third time with just seven seconds remaining in the match when junior Terran Hadlock's (Minden, Nev.) cross found Hernandez who headed in Nevada's third goal of the night.
"This was the best game Nevada soccer has ever played," Patraw said. "The result was great; it was a total team effort."
Nevada goalie, senior Megan Tarpenning (Roseville, Calif.), recorded four saves while Lawrence made eight saves for the Hornets.
Nevada out shot Sacramento State 21-8, including an 11-4 advantage in shots on goal. Freshmen Jessica Thompson (Ogden, Utah) and Samantha Miller (Riverside, Calif.) led the Pack with five shots a piece. Eight Sacramento State players recorded one shot a piece.
Nevada hosts Eastern Washington on Sept. 6 at 6:00 p.m. before traveling to Davis, Calif. on Sept. 10 to face the Aggies at 1:00 p.m.
