Box Score

ATLANTA, Ga.- - Sophomore Stephanie Elgie scored two goals, while freshman Keri Zwikker had a goal and three assists to help the Jacksonville University women's soccer team earn their first victory of the season over Tennessee Tech, 4-2, Friday afternoon at the Georgia State Invitational.

"I'm very pleased to get our first win," said head coach Chris Kouns. "We had been getting better each game. It's nice to see us finally break through with a win."

The Dolphins (1-3-2) scored first when Zwikker fed sophomore Jenny Borschel in the 17th minute for the 1-0 advantage.

The Golden Eagles (2-4) scored two quick goals to take the lead at the 34 and 37 minute marks. Zwikker beat the Golden Eagles' goalie on a one-on-one situation to tie the game with an assist from freshman Michelle Lavine just minutes before the half.

After halftime, the Dolphins scored two unanswered goals to put the game out of reach for the Golden Eagles.

Zwikker beat a few defenders down the field to dish an assist to Elgie to score her first goal of the season at the 50-minute frame. Elgie wasted no time adding to her season-goals total when she knocked in a score at the 75-minute mark with an assist from freshman Katie Orr.

"Give credit to the Tennessee Tech players and coaching staff," Kouns said. "They did a great job on defense that made it difficult for us to run our offense."

The Dolphins wrap up the invitational against former Atlantic-Sun foe Georgia State on Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
