Summit League play got off to a good start for the Maverick women as they earned a 2-0 win over South Dakota Sunday afternoon at the UNO Soccer Field.
The Mavs (3-5-2, 1-0 Summit) took the lead on a goal by Ava Doetsch. Monica Bosiljevac played the ball in the midfield over the top to Doetsch on the left side. Doetsch ran it down and chipped it over charging goalkeeper Mackenzie Viktor at the 5:15 mark.
At 34:21, Bosiljevac again played a ball behind the defense, this time on the right side. Chelsi Rohloff broke away and chipped a shot from 25 yards out over Viktor and into the net to make it 2-0.
The Mavericks had a 6-5 shots on goal advantage over the Coyotes (5-4-3, 0-1 Summit), but Meaghan Clark stopped all five shots for her second shutout this season.
