No. 4 Portland Knocks Off Kansas, 2-0
PORTLAND, Ore. – Despite 10 saves from senior goalkeeper Colleen Quinn and three shots from senior Emily Strinden, the University of Kansas fell to No. 4 Portland, 2-0, in front of 3,060 fans in a non-conference soccer match Friday at Merlo Field.
The Pilots improve to 4-1, while the Jayhawks fall to 0-4-1.
Quinn, a senior goalkeeper from Fort Collins, Colo., made double-digit saves for the second time in a two-week span, stopping 10 Pilot shots.
Portland got on the board in the 25th minute, as Kendra Chandhoke scored on a feed from Michelle Enyeart from six yards out. Enyeart added a goal 14 minutes later to give the Pilots their margin of victory.
Kansas held UP’s chances to a minimum in the second half and put some pressure on of its own. After being outshot 9-1 in the first half, KU collected five shots in the second half. Strinden led the offense with three shots, while Kim Boyer, Missy Geha and Shannon McCabe each recorded a shot in the second half.
UP goalkeeper Kelsey Davis made three saves to earn the shutout.
