Malibu, Calif. - The Pepperdine women's soccer team received goals from three different players as it trounced Cal State Northridge, 3-1, in a non-conference match on Thursday afternoon at the Matador Soccer Field. With the win, the Waves improved to 10-5-3 overall, while the Matadors closed their regular season with a 10-9-0 record.
Pepperdine scored all three of its goals in a span of 17 minutes with the Waves breaking a scoreless tie at the 70 minute mark.
Senior forward Lindsey Redlin got the scoring in motion as she rocketed the ball from 25 yards out past Matador goalkeeper April Cline to put the Waves up 1-0. Less than 10 minutes later, sophomore Amanda Rupp crossed the ball to Sophia Medina, who netted the goal on the left side as the freshman recorded her fourth goal of the season.
Northridge was not out of the game just yet. Northridge received a penalty kick after a Medina foul in the box and at the 82:08 mark, Devon Nizich scored to close the gap to just one goal.
With less than five minutes left to play in regulation, the Waves regained their two-goal lead when sophomore Emily Wynne scored her fifth of the season as she headed in the ball off of an Ashley Copp free kick at the 86:23 mark.
Pepperdine out-shot its opponent 18-12 with Wynne leading all players with five shots, while Rupp and McKenzie Hill attempted three shots each.
Wave goalkeeper Kayla Stolte tallied five saves in the match, stopping four shots in the first 45 minutes.
The Waves conclude their four-match road trip when they face Portland in a pivotal West Coast Conference match on Sunday with the first kick set for 2:30 p.m.
