Compas leads LU women to win

Andy York

The Lawrence University women’s soccer team rode two goals from Sarah Compas, and Tara McGovern’s first collegiate goal, to defeat Edgewood 3-1 in Appleton last Sunday. It was the Vikings’ first win of the year. Compas scored her first goal only 2:40 into the game. Fellow senior Greta Raaen picked up the assist. Compas’ second goal, unassisted, came 16 minutes later and put LU up 2-0.

Edgewood struck back in the second half, cutting the lead to 2-1 on a goal by Samiera Kookasemkit, but Mc Govern scored nearly three minutes later to again put LU up by two.

Candice Gangl picked up her first win as a Viking, allowing one goal on seven shots. The Vikings are next in action this weekend with games at Knox and Grinnell.
