DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – In a matchup of two Top 20 ranked NAIA Women’s Soccer programs, it was the No. 4 ranked Embry-Riddle (Fla.) Eagles that came out on top over the No. 16 ranked Kansas Wesleyan Coyotes 3-0 on Friday evening at the Embry-Riddle Soccer Complex in the Habitat for Humanity Invitational.
Embry-Riddle struck first in the ninth minute when Rebekka Gisladottir connected with a header on a set piece on a corner kick from Katherine Ebbs for the first goal of the match.
Martine Olsen would score off a botched clearance in the 18th minute and Valerie Obita would score off an assist by Kristin Sverrisdotir on a free kick in the 35th minute for the three goals by the Eagles. Neither team would find the back of the net in the second half.
Melissa Martinez, who had a hat trick Wednesday against Benedictine, led the Coyotes with three shots, two of them on frame. Emily Tielrooy had four saves in goal for the Coyotes.
The Coyotes face No. 6 Northwood (Fla.) on Sunday afternoon at 12:30 Kansas Time before returning home for the home opener on Tuesday at Salina Stadium against MidAmerica Nazarene.
