JOLIET, Ill. – The USF women's soccer team scored three unanswered goals to defeat Clarke University 3-1.

Olivia De La Rosa (Romeoville, Ill./Romeoville) scored twice for the Saints (3-1-1) today, while Casey Harris (Roselle, Ill./Lake Park)added three points of her own. The two players are now tied for the team-lead with three goals each.

The Pride found the scoreboard first in the 31st minute. Bailey McNamee sent a long free kick that bounced in a dangerous area. Chelsie Horton was able to tip a header over USF starting goalkeeper Bethany Dombkowski (Frankfort, Ill./Lincoln-Way North) to score her fourth goal of the year.

The Saints equalized in the second half. Karley Draheim (Machesney Park, Ill./Harlem) took advantage of a clear that stayed in the Saints' attacking third, firing a shot that hit off the post. De La Rosa swooped in and buried the rebound to knot the game at one.

De La Rosa scored again to put the Saints ahead. Alejandra Alonso (Hoffman Estates, Ill./Hoffman Estates) found Harris in the middle of the field. Harris fired a shot that was redirected inside the near post by De La Rosa.

Harris added one of her own for some insurance, blasting a shot under the crossbar from 25 yards out.

The Saints outshot the Pride (3-2-1) 22-15. Jessica Kiely (Wheaton, Ill./Wheaton North) played the second half, stopping five shots and earning the win. Stevie Edie made nine saves for Clarke.

The Saints hit the road for the first time this season this Friday, September 15. They will take on Huntington University in a 3:00 p.m. Central time start.
