Box Score (PDF) Full Schedule Roster DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s soccer team earned its first win of the 2019 season with a 1-0 victory over South Dakota State Friday, Sept. 6 evening at the Cownie Soccer Complex. Junior Hannah Bormann scored the first goal of the season for Drake (1-4), which hosted its annual Kick Cancer event.”We weren’t great tonight, but we did enough to get the shutout,” Drake head coach Lindsey Horner said. “Vanessa Kavan and Audrey Vidmar were fantastic for us. Hannah Bormann was a spark and great to have back on the field, and Ali Burke gave us a solid shift in the midfield.” Stone notched three saves in the first half, including two in quick succession in the 35th and 37th minutes, to stave off the South Dakota State (2-3) attack. She finished with seven saves in the victory.”We did a good job of keeping South Dakota State’s forward pair in front of us, but when the game became frantic as they pushed numbers forward for the equalizer, we didn’t manage the lead as well as we would have liked,” Horner said. “Kelsie’s worked at her distribution and range, so that was exciting for her to tally an assist.”The night was extra special for the Bulldogs as they honored their special family member Breslyn pregame. Breslyn became a part of the Drake women’s soccer family in 2018 as part of the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. She was diagnosed with leukemia at age 3, but rang the bell in 2018 signaling her final chemo treatment. Breslyn and her family founded Breslyn’s Blankets of Love to help other children in their fight against cancer.
