Minnesota Morris women's soccer put in a great offensive effort in collecting a season-high five goals in a 5-2 win over North Central Saturday, Sept. 29, in Morris.

Providing the offensive punch for UMM was sophomore Sam Tate as she scored two goals and assisted on two others. Tate got the scoring off to an early start. Her free kick from just outside of the box in the third minute was laced into the right side of the net for an early 1-0 UMM edge.

After North Central tied it in the 11th minute, Tate would help regain the edge the Cougars. Her pass in front led Brooke Lorentz perfectly who connected for a 2-1 UMM lead in the 21st minute. Tate would collect her second goal in the waning minutes of the half as her shot snuck just inside of the right post for a 3-1 UMM edge in the 44th minute.

Lorentz extended the Cougar lead with her second goal of the afternoon in the 60th minute. Tate was involved in the final goal of the day as she assisted on a Rylee Whiteside connection in the 75th minute.

Megan Tschida made five saves in net for the Cougars.
