APPLETON, Wis. — Darice Brooks scored a pair of goals Saturday to lead the Monmouth College women’s soccer team to a 2-0 Midwest Conference over Lawrence University on Ron Roberts Field at the Banta Bowl.
Brooks scored unassisted at the 13:44 mark to stake Monmouth (6-8-2, 3-5-0 MWC) to a 1-0 lead. The Vikings nearly tied the game just a few minutes later but the Scots survived a scramble in front of the net after Lawrence’s Sarah Zaccarine was sent crashing to the turf.
Brooks then sealed the win with a goal off an assist from Kara-Jade Gordon in the 71st minute.
Nicole Neagle made four saves to pick up the shutout for Monmouth. Kori Looker stopped 15 shots for Lawrence (1-13-0, 0-7-0).
