NSU soccer notebook

Northeastern State took care of business on its home field Tuesday night, beating Northwest Missouri State, 2-1, at DeLoache Field. With the win, the RiverHawks advanced to the MIAA tournament semifinals, which will be held in Warrensburg, Mo.

Also advancing to the tournament semifinals was Central Missouri, Central Oklahoma and Fort Hayes State.

The top-seeded Central Missouri Jennies — NSU’s opponent in the semifinals — held off Southwest Baptist with a 3-1 victory in a shutout period after regulation ended tied at two apiece in the match. Central Missouri’s Jenna Stones won the match for the Jennies with the third penalty kick in the shootout period, while Southwest Baptist’s Halee Ruckman missed her subsequent attempt.

In Edmond, Alyssa Anderson, Kate Foran, Elle Aston and Caitlin Bond all scored as Central Oklahoma shut out Missouri Southern, 4-0.

The Bronchos’ semifinals opponent will be Fort Hays State, which beat Truman, 1-0, in Kirksville, Mo. Nicole Randall scored a goal in the 76th minute off a free kick to propel the Tigers into the next round.

Clark picks up MIAA honor

NSU’s Jennifer Clark earned her first-career weekly accolade as she was named the MIAA Women’s Soccer Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.

Clark, a junior forward, recorded at least one point in every match (two goals, two assists) as the RiverHawks posted a 3-0 mark last week.

She scored the game-winning goal in Northeastern State’s first match of the week against Ouachita Baptist. She also scored the first goal and then picked up an assist in the team’s win over Emporia State.

Clark completed her weekend by assisting on the game-winning goal against Washburn to help the RiverHawks bypass Northwest Missouri State and earn the No. 4 seed in the 2012 MIAA Women’s Soccer Championship.

This is the second weekly award for Northeastern State this year. Senior forward Rachel Sordahl won the honor Sept. 11.
