The University of Toledo women's soccer team claimed its third MAC regular season title in the last four years with a 2-0 shutout of Ball State this afternoon at Scott Park.
The Rockets (11-6-2, 9-1-1 MAC) will be the No. 1 seed in the conference tournament and host Ohio in the quarterfinals at 1 p.m. Sunday. The UT division of external affairs has agreed to pay the admission fee for the first 100 UT students with their university ID to Sunday’s contest.
Scoring for Toledo today against Ball State were senior Danielle Case, who tallied her second goal of the season at 15:42. The marker was setup on a corner kick from junior Natalia Gaitan.
The Rockets added to their lead when sophomore Rachel MacLeod found the back of the net for the seventh time this fall at 54:44. Gaitan started the play once again with a well-struck ball toward the Ball State back post to junior Kristen Mattei who headed it back toward the middle of the BSU goal box. MacLeod was there waiting for Mattei’s header and promptly placed a header into the net to establish a two-goal cushion.
Between the posts, UT senior goalkeeper Vicki Traven made four saves to collect her seventh shutout of the season.
