Bulldogs Get Big Win On Senior Day


KIRKSVILLE, Mo. – The Bulldog Women's Soccer team dominated the University of Indianapolis and picked up a much needed home win as they downed the Greyhounds 2-0 on Senior Day.

Truman outshot the Greyhounds 22-5 on the afternoon and had 11 corner kicks.

Isabel Kurzban got Truman on the board midway through the first half. Delaney Kooken beat her defender the deep on the right wing. She then turned at the end line and sent a cross to the middle where Kurzban was waiting to kick it past Caitlynn Mackenzie for the goal. It was Kurzban's second goal of the season.

The Bulldogs had a scramble in front of the net early in the second half but could not push across a goal.

Later, with just over 20 minutes left to play, Leah Bolskar took a ball into the corner and played a pass to Sam Bibee just inside the 18. Bibee blasted a shot that beat the keeper and banged off the inside of the far post into the net for the senior's first career goal.

Katie Mattingly and made two routine saves and was lifted with seven minutes remaining for fellow senior Nicole Sparks.

The Bulldogs will play their final two regular season games on the road next weekend in the Chicago area. On Friday they will face the University of Wisconsin-Parkside and on Sunday square off against Lewis University.
