Sophomore Brooke Buzzell recorded her fourth goal of the season in the 53rd minute to lift Wayne State to a 1-0 win over Minnesota Crookston in NSIC action Saturday at the WSC Soccer Pitch.
Wayne State got on the scoreboard in the eighth minute of the second half as Buzzell took a pass from the left wing by Carys Hund and kicked the ball into the goal from about seven yards out. UMC had just one shot on goal the rest of the way as Wildcat senior goalkeeper Kylie Comba made a save on a shot from Lorna McCall to preserve the shutout.
Wayne State held an 11-8 edge in shots over UMC including 5-2 in shots on goal. Both teams had four corner kicks while WSC was called for 13 fouls to eight on UMC.
Sophie Ketchmark, Hanna Knight and Hund each had two shots to lead the Wildcats. Comba recorded her fifth shutout of the year, recording two saves in the win.
The Wildcats (7-3-3, 4-3-3 NSIC) will be at home again Sunday, hosting Bemidji State in a 1 p.m. contest.
