Oct. 17, 2004
NACOGDOCHES - The Stephen F. Austin Ladyjack soccer team started out sluggish Sunday afternoon but pulled it together to defeat Northwestern State, 4-1, at the SFA Intrumural Complex. The Ladyjacks are now 9-4-2 (.667) on the season and 7-1-1 (.833) in Southland Conference action.
The Lady Demons took a one-goal lead when Stephanie Miller scored the goal at the 20:51 mark of the first half. That lead stood for the next 21 minutes of the game before the Ladyjacks rallied right before the half. Junior Kim Gray tied the game with her goal in the 43rd minute, off a pass from Senior Christie Mestayer. The Ladyjacks went right back on the offensive when Mestayer scored a goal with only 36 seconds left in the half.
Junior goalkeeper Natascia Michalezki shutout Northwestern State in the second half not allowing another goal. Sophomore Vanessa Callaway came on to play the final 13:23 in net for the Ladyjacks and recorded one save.
Freshman Kristel Lindsey put the game out of reach in the second half with her fifth goal of the season, which came in the 64th minute of action. Classmate Stephanie Prentice scored the game's final goal with only 27 seconds remaining on the clock.
The Ladyjacks return to action Friday when they travel to Thibodaux, La., to face Nicholls State. The game against the Lady Colonels is slated to get under way at 4 p.m.
