TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology women's soccer team battled the rain to pick up a key 5-0 women's soccer victory over Manchester University at the Indiana State University Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The match was moved to the turf field at Indiana State to accommodate the rain, which pelted through the entire afternoon. With three first half goals, Rose-Hulman took a quick lead and never looked back.
Jessica Wells scored two of the three first half goals to lead the Fightin' Engineer offense. Wells scored on an assist from Elle Vuotto in the 16th minute; provided the assist on a goal by Vuotto in the 25th minute; and scored on an assist by Maggie Sheerin and Katrina Agustin in the 32nd minute.
The Fightin' Engineer defense matched its offense in the match, as Rose-Hulman outshot Manchester 22-1. Katie Demert picked up the shutout victory in goal, while Wells led the team with six shots and Maddy Twetten added four.
Rose-Hulman remained alone in first place in the HCAC standings with an 11-4-1 mark and a 6-0-1 league record with the win, while Manchester dropped to 1-6 in conference play. The Fightin' Engineers travel to Anderson for a key HCAC matchup on Wednesday night.
