Creighton Downs KU Soccer, 1-0
Omaha, Neb. – Katy Peetz’ goal in the 51st minute proved to be the game-winner as Creighton downed the University of Kansas, 1-0 in a non-conference soccer match Friday night at Morrison Stadium.
The loss drops KU to 6-4 on the season, while Creighton improves to 6-5-1.
Creighton got on the board as Peetz took advantage of a misplayed throw-in in the box just six minutes into the second half. Sam Russell’s flip throw eluded the Kansas defense deep in the box and found Peetz’ right foot for the midfielder’s first goal of the season.
“I’m disappointed,” KU head coach Mark Francis said. “We hit the post a couple of times and they buried the chance they had. Give them credit.”
Kansas outshot the Bluejays in the match and seemed to have the better chances.
In the 28th minute, freshman Monica Dolinsky came within inches of her fifth goal of the season, when her shot from inside the box rattled off the crossbar on the near side of the goal.
Ten minutes later, Gault had a long run through the Creighton defense, but could not bend a shot from 18 yards to the net.
Midway through the second half, a rush by Gault forced the Bluejay defense into playing a Shannon McCabe cross off the near post, but bounced harmlessly away.
KU outshot the home team 12-9 and had a 7-3 advantage in corner kicks. Four different Jayhawks had two shots a piece.
Goalkeeper Julie Hanley made three saves in a losing effort for the Jayhawks.
KU will travel to Nebraska for a Big 12 match against the Cornhuskers at 1 p.m.
