BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. – Monica Munoz tallied two second-half goals to send the Roosevelt women's soccer team past visiting Harris-Stowe (Mo.), 3-2, at Toyota Park on Saturday.

Julia Schultz scored the game's first goal and Anna Agboola tacked on a pair of assists for the Lakers (2-3-0), who won their second consecutive contest and posted their second three-goal outing in four days.

Schultz opened up the scoring in the 12th minute, corralling a ball from Agboola and unleashing a shot from 25 yards out to beat the keeper and light the Lakers' side of the scoreboard.

The Hornets (1-2-0) equalized 18 minutes later when Victoria Sample beat the defense on a ball from Johanna Wallstab and sent a ball past Kara Jones.

The game stayed level until Munoz's magical four minutes after intermission. In the 64th minute she ran up the middle of the park and received a beautiful ball from Agboola to get a clean look she converted into the go-ahead goal.

Three minutes later it was Meghan McCue who sent a ball to the left side for Munoz, who had another top-notch look at the frame and beat the keeper for a key insurance goal and her third tally of 2017.

Harris-Stowe's Justica Corn got the Hornets within one on a goal in the 84th minute, taking advantage of a deflected ball to her after a pass into the box bounced off of a pair of players.   

But the Roosevelt defense held, as did Munoz's monstrous offensive performance, to lift the Lakers to victory.

Agboola assisted on three Roosevelt goals this week, while Munoz has two goals and two assists since Wednesday's win over Bethel.

Jones' streak of double-digit saves was halted at four matches, but Roosevelt didn't need their keeper to be as heroic in volume this time around with the Lakers' offense taking up a lot of time and possession. RU unleashed 22 shots and 10 on goal, with Munoz unloading a game-high seven attempts and five against frame.

Roosevelt has a week off until a scrimmage against Morton College next Saturday morning before resuming regular season play against rival Robert Morris Illinois at Morris Field in Arlington Heights on Sept. 20 at 6pm.
