Déjà vu for Jennies soccer

Strangely enough, the headlines from Jennies soccer this week were exactly the same as last week:

The Jennies win back-to-back shut outs

The Jennies opened up the season by knocking off Southwest Oklahoma State 4-0 and Augustana 5-0 to complete a weekend of shut outs. This past weekend saw similar results. The Jennies posted a pair of shut outs with a 2-0 victory over St. Cloud State and a 4-0 win over Wionna State.

Ana Dilkes is named MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week

Dilkes was awarded MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week for the first week of the season following her performance against Southwest Oklahoma State and Augustana. The senior goalkeeper once again held two opponents scoreless and earned the honor for the second week in a row after posting six saves against Wionna State and two against St. Cloud State.

Jennies Soccer is ranked No. 4 in the United Soccer Coaches Poll

Last week the Jennies trailed Western Washington, Columbus State, and Kutztown in the United Soccer Coaches Poll. While the Jennies secured a pair of shut out victories, each of the top three teams in the poll remained undefeated and notched at least one victory since the last poll. The consistent performances from the top four teams prevented any movement at the top of the poll.
