Last Wednesday the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain ladies soccer team travelled to El Reno, Oklahoma to take on Redlands Community College and came away with a 3-1 win.
Scoring was started early by UARM on a Madison Zamudio goal in the 2nd minute of play.
The UARM ladies didn’t let up with their intensity of trying to score again. Tatum Moore took a shot on goal in the 6th minute, but the Redlands keeper made the save.
It wasn’t long until Moore found the back of the net when she scored the second UARM goal in the 17th minute on an assist from Maria Diedrick. Moore was subbed out in the 30th minute and replaced by Kateya Jacobz who wasted no time in testing the keeper with a shot on goal that was saved.
The half ended with UARM up 2 nil.
Redlands came out firing in the 2nd half with a shot on goal that keeper Briana Salinas saved to keep their opponents goaless until the 54th minute when Redlands scored on an Honor Sagebiel goal.
The Rich Mountain ladies kept up the offensive, peppering the Redlands defense with shots until the reintroduced Tatum Moore scored the 3rd goal in the 79th ending Redlands hopes of a comeback and sealing the first win for the UARM ladies program.
