Lady Chiefs pull out win in final home game of 2013
Opponent: Eagles at Lady Chiefs
1 - 0 (W)
Waubonsee and Robert Morris University's Junior Varsity battled toe-to-toe throughout most of their match. The only difference turned out to be an adjustment made by Waubonsee head coach Brad Schlemmer at halftime. After a scoreless first half, Schlemmer figured he needed to add some punch to his offense, and moved defender Sam Klecz to forward. The sophomore quickly responded two minutes into the second half when she knocked in her first goal of the season following up a missed shot by Elizabeth Goll. The Lady Chiefs made the most of that one goal to earn a hard fought 1-0 victory over the Eagles. Waubonsee keeper Melissa Gallardo made a tremendous save on a one-on-one breakaway with a minute and a half remaining to preserve the Lady Chiefs' lead. For the game Waubonsee (8-5) out shot the visiting Eagles 14-9 as Gallardo recorded nine saves on her way to her fifth shutout of the season.
