Northeast women fall at home to Iowa Central


Special to the Viewpoint

NORFOLK, Neb. – After scoring a goal in the first 10 minutes of the match, the Northeast Community College women’s soccer team looked to be in the driver’s seat in an ICCAC game against Iowa Central Community College.


However, two goals in the final half by Iowa Central proved to be the difference as the Hawks (11-3, 3-2 ICCAC) fell 3-1 on Tuesday at Veterans Memorial Field in Norfolk.


“I felt we played a good game, but the well went dry for our goals today,” head coach Chad Miller said. “We had chance, but kept missing them by small margins. Some of those usually go in, but today they didn’t. I am disappointed in the loss, but not with our play.”


Frida Aguilar-Zimello (Boulder, Colo.) put the Hawks on the board in the eighth-minute off an assist from Naomi Pedroza (Hastings, Neb.), but the scoring stopped there for the Hawks.


Northeast out-shot Iowa Central, 18-8. Mackenzie Byrnes (Brighton, Colo.) had four saves in the net.


The Hawks are back in action at 12:00 p.m. Saturday when they host Southeastern Community College at Veterans Memorial Field in Norfolk.
