Sarah Williams’ unassisted goal at the 28-minute mark was all that 13th-seeded William Jewell needed to defeat Kansas Wesleyan 1-0 in the second round of the 27th Annual NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship at Jack Allen Complex Monday in Decatur, AL.
The Cardinals push their record to 16-2-2 and advance into the quarterfinals, where they will face the winner of the No. 5-seed Martin Methodist (Tenn.) and Baker (Kan.) match Wednesday at 10 a.m. CST.
William Jewell had eight players take a shot on goal to finish with 11 in the contest. Kansas Wesleyan’s offense was limited with just six looks, including three by Kaitlyn Hamersky. The Cardinals outshot the Lady Coyotes 21-15. William Jewell’s netminder Kelli Sontag registered six saves.
