Rutgers Women’s Soccer Moves to 2-0 with Dominant Win Over UNLV
The Lady Scarlet Knights wrapped up the New Mexico portion of their opening road trip with a dominating 5-1 victory over UNLV to improve to 2-0 on the young season.
Rutgers, the sixth-ranked team in the nation, saw five different scorers on Sunday, the most goals the program has scored on the road since 2015.
A little over a minute into the game and Rutgers was on the board when Gia Girman scored her first goal of the season on an assist from Allison Lowrey. Lowrey would also assist on Rutgers’s next goal in the 18th minute when Sara Brocious scored to make it 2-0. Sam Kroeger tapped in her first goal of the season at the 25-minute mark to make it 3-0. Lowrey would close out the half with her second goal in as many games on a duel assist by Kroeger and Brocious.
Hailey Gutowski tallied the final goal of the day in the 79th minute to put RU up big 5-1.
Megan McClelland stopped two shots and gave up only one goal in 81 minutes in front of the net. Cameron Kennett kept UNLV off the board in the game’s final nine minutes.
Rutgers heads to Rhode Island for a date with Providence on Thursday before opening the home schedule against Buffalo on August 28.
