Jill Burkholder and Haley Kreger each scored a goal as the Express women's soccer team defeated No. 11 Muskegon Community College 2-1 today.
Kreger scored about 20 minutes into the game as the Express took an early 1-0 lead. Burkholder then had a collision to the right of the penalty box near the end of the first half with a Muskegon defender, maintained her balance and lofted a shot over the goalkeeper's head to pad the lead.
Up 2-0 at the half, the Express defense held Muskegon down until midway through the second half when the Jayhawks scored to pull within one midway through the half. The Express, however, held off Muskegon to get the win.
Erika Brinkman started in goal for the Express. She made several saves, including a diving save to her right in the second half.
