The Alverno Jaguars battled to a 1-0 victory against the Ramona Convent Tigers in a Horizon League home game.

In the 23rd minute, freshman forward Afton Okwu ’21 (18) stole possession and drove upfield along the sideline.  She found senior midfielder Jazmin Rebollo ’18 (19) making a run at the far post, and Rebollo ’18 scored the game winning goal.  The Jaguars could not capitalize on 3 corner kicks and 2 free kicks.

The Jaguars starting backline of co-captain senior Nikki Oberhammer ’18 (17), junior Elisia Bendy ’19 (2), sophomore Cassie Lianto ’20 (10), and freshman Helen Abascal ’21 (3) gave up 2 corner kicks but was able to defend the lead.  Freshman goalkeeper Amanda Mercado ’21 (0) had 7 saves and earned her fourth clean slate of the season.

The Jaguars improve their record to 3-1 (5-6 overall) and will face Holy Family on Friday, January 19, 2018.
