'Own goal' helps HU women booters shad MVNU, 1-0

The Huntington University women's soccer team used an "own goal" to defeat host Mount Vernon Nazarene University, 1-0, on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

The game's lone score came at 10:40 in the first half when HU's Sam Cubic sent a corner kick into the MVNU goal area, where it deflected off a Cougar defender and into the net when she tried to clear it.

HU's defense did the rest as senior goalkeeper Caitlyn Adams, with help from defender Jessica Krause, recorded her second shutout of the season as the team improved to 5-9 overall, 4-2 in the Crossroads League.

Adams finished with five saves on the day.
