September 16, 2013
Lincoln, IL – The Lincoln College women’s soccer team defeated ICC 4-3 on Friday in Lincoln. The Lynx started off strong taking a 3-0 lead at halftime. In the second half, Lynx goalkeeper Abigail Hall had to leave the game with a head injury, opening up the door for ICC. After three unanswered goals, the score was tied with less than 5 minutes to play. The Lynx rallied back and scored the game winning goal with three minutes to play. Freshman Emmie Conejo led the Lynx in scoring with three goals. Sophomore Karen Quintana also scored for the Lynx.
Coach Weekly’s Remarks: “I was very proud of how the ladies played today. We came out strong against rival ICC taking the early lead. When Abigail Hall had to leave the game it put us on our heels a little. Despite letting ICC back in the game we battled the full 90 minutes to come away with the win. This is a great win for us in general and a solid win in region play.”
