Women's Soccer Blows Past Colorado State, 3-0
Oct. 4, 2013
SAN DIEGO - Junior forward Hannah Keane and senior forward Jensen Skinner each recorded a goal and an assist to lift the San Diego State women's soccer team to a dominating victory over Colorado State, 3-0, on Friday night at SDSU Sports Deck.
The Aztecs (5-5-2, 3-0 MW) have won three-straight matches overall, are 15-1-1 in their last 17 regular-season home games and are 14-0-1 in their last 15 regular-season home games against unranked opponents. SDSU is also riding a 12-game winning streak over Mountain West foes, and has won 13-consecutive regular season conference matches.
San Diego State struck quickly in the first half, as Sophie Metz scored her first goal of the season in the second minute off a nice setup from Keane and Haley Locker, giving the Aztecs an early advantage, 1-0. Keane scored SDSU's second goal from close range on an entry pass from Skinner to push the lead to 2-0, and Skinner lobbed a shot in off an assist from freshman Morgan Darling to make it 3-0 in the 31st minute.
The Aztecs out-shot Colorado State (1-7-2, 0-3 MW) for the game, 34-2, including an 18-0 edge in first-half shots, while CSU didn't record its first shot until the 62nd minute. SDSU also had a 14-2 advantage in corner kicks.
Keane's goal was her eighth of the season, which set a new single-season career high for the junior. In addition, her three points on the night pulled her just two shy of matching her single-season career high of 21. Both of her records were set in 2012. Keane also tallied nine shots on Friday, while Skinner and Darling each recorded four apiece for the Aztecs.
San Diego State returns to action on Friday, Oct. 11, as the Aztecs hit the road to take on Air Force, beginning at 7 p.m. MT. The match will be streamed live on Mountain West Network.
