CMU soccer beats Toledo 1-0
The Central Michigan women’s soccer team struggled with the same problem it has all season for most of its match against Toledo on Friday.
The Chippewas were dominating the game, but hadn’t scored a goal.
In the 76th minute that changed when junior midfielder Ashley Mejilla scored her team -eading fourth goal to propel CMU past the Rockets 1-0.
The two schools came into the game as the two best defensive teams in the Mid-American Conference and they showed why. The teams allowed 18 shots. Most of the game was played in the middle of the field with neither team able to get past the others defense.
Junior defender Katie Slaughter assisted on Mejilla’s goal for her first point of the season.
Junior Stefanie Turner started in goal. She had three saves en route to her fourth shutout of the season.
“Overall, I’m happy with how we played,” head coach Neil Stafford said. “I thought we played fantastic in the first half especially. We applied a lot of pressure to Toledo in the first half and didn’t really allow them to get anything going.“
The Chippewas are back in action at 1 p.m. on Sunday when they host Ball State in the regular season home finale.
