April 27, 2013

On a long-awaited sunny day in front of a crowd of over five hundred spectators, the Golden Gopher women’s soccer team defeated the Minnesota State Mavericks, 2-0, in the annual Spring Game at Elizabeth Lyle Robbie Stadium in St. Paul, Minn.

Haley Helverson and Annie Myers scored goals for the Gopher offense. Helverson knocked one in from just inside the goal box, while Myers capitalized on a corner kick with an assist from Allie Phillips.

With an altered format of three 30-minute periods, the Gopher players saw a lot of action on the pitch. Collectively, the team gathered 18 shots, 10 of those on target to the net, while allowing only one shot for the Minnesota State attack. Minnesota also held an 11-3 advantage in corner kicks.

“This was our second day outside and the first time we got to play with 11 players on the field,” said head coach Stefanie Golan after the match. “We definitely saw some good things and some places to build from. There are things we need to fix but given where we are it, it is a good result. We were definitely more dangerous. We didn’t give up anything that was dangerous. We have a bright outlook for the fall.”
