1. Golazos highlight Santa Clara win over Portland
Subscribe to College Soccer Reporter
The Santa Clara-Portland game lived up its billing as the Broncos edged
UP, 3-2, in a back-and-forth game that featured several brilliant goals.
Michelle Enyeart gave the
Pilots a 1-0 lead in the 12th minute
after being fed by All-American defender Stephanie Lopez, who made a
sensational run past six Santa Clara defenders.
Marian Dalmy tied the game in
the 20th minute from the penalty spot,
and seven minutes later Meagan Snell
put SCU ahead, outrunning the
Portland back line to a long ball and chipping it past Pilots keeper
Cori Alexander for her 11th of the season.
Freshman Kiki Bosio extended
the Broncos' lead in the second half,
taking possession at midfield and making a highlight reel run through
the Portland defense before beating Alexander low to the far corner.
Kendra Chandhoke's goal in the
83rd minute cut the Bronco lead to 3-2. Enyeart and Chandboke, both
freshmen, have accounted for 22 goals.
"I'm proud of my team today, I thought we played well for about 80
percent of the game," said Santa Clara coach Jerry Smith, "and I thought we
created some good chances there. I think it was a really well-played
game by both teams."
The game drew 1,914 fans at Buck Shaw Stadium, where Santa Clara is now
10-1-1 against Portland.
