Two days before it plays in the Sun Belt Championship Game as the East Division's…
Aly Ramsey scored two goals in a ten minute span in the first half to pace the Lenoir-Rhyne women’s soccer team to a victory over Mars Hill on Saturday afternoon inside Moretz Sports Athletic Campus, 4-0. Skylar Noll added a goal right before halftime and Elin Hansson scored in the second half to extend her goal streak to five games. The Bears have now outscored their SAC opponents 14-0 in their four conference games to open the season.
Coming off the bench, Ramsey scored two goals in her 15 minutes of action. Ramsey now has three goals in her last two games.
In the 42nd minute, Ria Acton delivered a free kick right off the post that Noll knocked in off the rebound to give the Bears a 3-0 lead heading into the break. It was Acton’s second assist of the game as she delivered the pass for Ramsey’s second goal of the game. Hansson then extended her scoring streak to five games with her second half goal off a Carola Busqueta pass in the middle of the box.
Kristin Oliver made two saves for the clean sheet as both Oliver’s saves came in a 40 second span late in the first half.
