Boise State Soccer shutout 3-0 at Weber State...

OGDEN, Utah (9/14/07) - Weber State (3-2-0) handed Boise State (2-3-0) a 3-0 defeat Friday afternoon in women’s soccer at Wildcat field in Ogden, Utah. The Wildcats scored an early goal in the 11th minute and then added two late goals to grab the victory. The match was the fifth consecutive road game of the year for Boise State.

Weber State got a scare in the 8th minute, when the Broncos got loose on a ball sent over the top. Goalkeeper Rebecca Ritchie charged the oncoming ball and made a sliding stop just as BSU’s Randi Baker let fly with a shot attempt. The kick inadvertently caught Ritchie in the head, knocking her unconscious. The sophomore keeper lay motionless for what turned out to be a 20-minute injury stoppage and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. A halftime report was that Ritchie was conscious and talking, and is expected to be fine, with a precautionary CAT scan to be taken.

In the 11th minute, Kelsie Ehlers found Lauren Parkhurst on a throw-in. The freshman midfielder one-touched the ball to the right post for her first collegiate tally, giving the Wildcats all the offense they would need on the day.

In the 62nd minute, Weber State’s Hayley McCoy found forward Kelly Robinson at the top of the 18. Her pass was partially deflected by a Bronco defender, but Robinson gathered the ball and beat charging BSU keeper Jennifer Burns with a shot to the left post.

The Wildcats got an additional insurance goal in the 68th minute as Ehlers recorded her second throw-in assist of the day, this time getting to the head of freshman midfielder Teresa Holt. Holt pounded the header to the right post.

Boise State had six players place shots on goal but were denied each time by the Wildcat goalkeepers. It marks the second shutout of the season of Boise State as they fall to 2-3-0 on the year. The Broncos return to Boise for a Sunday meeting with the Eastern Washington Eagles. The contest which starts at 1:00 p.m. is the first home match of the season for Boise State.
