Christopherson clinches women’s soccer win for Central

PLATTEVILLE, WIS.— A second-half goal from Cate Christopherson (junior, Omaha, Neb., North HS) was the only scoring play in the Central College women’s soccer team’s 1-0 victory against the University of Wisconsin – Platteville Saturday night.

The Dutch (3-0-1) defeated the Pioneers (0-3) in the first road game of the season after Christopherson tallied her second goal of the year in the 72nd minute.

“It was a nice service in off the corner and Cate was Johnny-on-the-spot and tucked it away,” Kobylinski said.

Winning most of the statistical battles, Central outshot Wis.-Platteville 20-11, and had 11 corner kicks to one for the Pioneers. Eight of Central’s 11 corner kicks came in the second half.

“Platteville is an improved team from last year,” Kobylinski said. “Statistically we played very well. They were a tough team to break down and they were well coached.

Goalkeeper Taylor Golt (junior, Crystal Lake, Ill., Prairie Ridge HS) was tested, making eight saves, but still held on for a shutout victory.

“Taylor had a presence tonight,” Kobylinski said. “She had a couple of key saves at the end that were huge.”

Getting her third start of the season as a defender, Kobylinski was especially impressed with Stephanie Noble’s (senior, Huntley, Ill.) performance.

“Stephanie played the best game I’ve seen her play,” he said. “Christopherson and Gabrielle Lillie (senior, Burlington, Notre Dame HS) were phenomenal in the back as well.”

Central’s road trip continues at North Park University (Ill.) for a 2 p.m. match in Chicago on Sunday. The Dutch won 8-2 in Pella last year

“It’s a new year,” Kobylinski said. “They’re pretty good at home and our team is a little tired. It will be our fifth game in nine days.”
