Yellowjackets report: Hill double keys perfect weekend

UWS has now won its first five UMAC women's soccer matches.

We are part of The Trust Project.

Kamryn Hill scored early and scored late for Wisconsin-Superior, as they extended their Upper Midwest Athletic Conference women's soccer record to 5-0 with a 2-0 victory at Minnesota Morris on Saturday, Oct. 1.

The Duluth Denfeld product's first goal of the game and fourth goal of the season came just 3:02 into the contest. The Yellowjackets peppered the Cougars' goal with 33 shots, 14 of them on target, but didn't get the ball across the goal line again until the 77th minute, when Hill struck again.

Goalkeeper Jenna Lang was kept busy, stopping all six shots she faced, three in each half.

UWS (5-3-2, 5-0) goes for a sixth consecutive UMAC win at home on Wednesday against Northwestern in a meeting of the top two teams in the UMAC standings.


Yellowjackets win in another rout

Wisconsin-Superior men's soccer made it 17 goals without reply in three consecutive UMAC games, with the latest rout a 6-0 decision at Minnesota Morris on Saturday.


Blake Perry scored the first leg of what would end up being a hat trick in the eighth minute, while Phillip Eriksen made it 2-0 in the 40th minute. UWS erupted for four goals in the second half with Perry scoring his other two goals in the 59th and 65th minutes and Eriksen adding his second of the day in the 73rd.

Jake Kidd (Superior) notched the first goal of his collegiate career on a penalty kick about 8 1/2 minutes from the end.

The UWS defense held UMM to just one shot on target, which goalkeeper Alex Paredes saved.

UWS (6-2-1, 4-0-1 UMAC) will take a shutout streak of nearly 300 consecutive minutes into Wednesday's home game against Northwestern.


UWS dominates in sweep

Wisconsin-Superior had more kills in the second or third set alone than Crown had in the entire match, part of a dominant 3-0 (25-10, 25-19, 25-15) UMAC volleyball sweep at Mertz Mortorelli Gym on Saturday.

Crown had 14 kills and 17 hitting errors in three sets for a hitting percentage of minus-.036. UWS, meanwhile, cleared .300 in all three sets and finished at .326 for the day.

Three Yellowjackets attackers had double-digit kills led by Maiana Stark's 11. Alexie Pryd and Cassy Teff added 10 each. Four Yellowjackets posted at least seven assists, but Colleen Claude had a team-best 13. In the back row, Jenna Anderson had 11 digs, though three others had at least six.

UWS (9-8, 5-0 UMAC) plays at North Central on Friday night.
