The UNI women’s soccer team played their second home game of the season on Friday, Sept. 14 against the Northern Illinois (NIU) Huskies.

NIU first got on the scoreboard with a goal in the 37th minute by Trudy Quidzinski off a corner kick. The Panthers would strike back with a goal by Maddie DePrenger after a deflection off the goal. Hannah McDevitt would add another goal in the 70th minute and would end the contest with three shots on the goal.

To put the game out of reach for the Huskies, Genevieve Cruz scored off an assist from Sophia Conant in the 74th minute to give the Panthers the 3-1 victory.

Senior goaltender Jami Reichenberger had an outstanding outing in the net with five deflections.

UNI brought the same level of intensity and momentum from their last game against the Huskies to the road against Iowa State. This is the first time in the history of UNI’s women’s soccer program that they have beaten the Cyclones. From start to finish, the Panthers gave a 100 percent effort in Ames on Sept. 16.

Reichenberger continued her stellar play as she faced 16 total shots all game, not allowing one goal  into the net. Iowa State’s goaltender Dayja Schwichtenberg faced ten shots from UNI with six shots on the goal. Prior to this match, UNI led the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC) in goals against average with 0.82 per game.

Reichenberger’s dominant net play and MVC leading .885 save percentage helped the Panthers run away with the lead and ultimately, the 1-0 win. Jordyl Rolli would score the lone goal of the game in the 48th minute.

The Panthers look ahead to defend their home win streak of two games versus the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers in MVC action on Sunday, Sept. 23 and the Missouri State Bears on Sept. 29.
