Pair of seniors power Jacks to win


An efficient attack gave SDSU a victory at home in the Summit League opener.

For the SDSU Jackrabbits soccer team last Friday, it was all about seizing the opportunity when it presented itself.

Behind a stellar defensive effort, the Jacks took full advantage of their offensive opportunities en route to a 2-0 victory over Oral Roberts in the Summit League opener for SDSU. With the win, the Jacks improve to 5-5-1 overall and 1-0-0 in the Summit League while Oral Roberts drops to 4-7-1 and 1-1-0.

The first period was reasonably competitive, with both teams attempting the same number of shots (3) and Oral Roberts saving two potential goal opportunities for the Jacks. Senior Kayla Braffet broke the stalemate with a goal in the 34th minute following a crossing pass from fellow senior Danielle Neuhalfen to put the Jacks up 1-0.
