Quick Start Pushes DePaul past Valpo

Friday, October 25, 2002

Two goals in the first ten minutes of the match was more than enough for DePaul as the Blue Demons defeated Valparaiso 3-1 on a cold, rainy Friday afternoon at Eastgate Field.

The visitors wasted little time getting on the scoreboard as Christy Young scored through traffic from the top of the penalty area at the 4:58 mark.

Krissy Seberhagen made the score 2-0 at 9:54 of the first half as she took a Bren Sugarman pass and converted, beating Kristen Templin (Madison, Wis./Middleton H.S.).

Margo Sackmaster added the Blue Demons third goal in the 23rd minute of play, taking advantage of a turnover and scoring from 20 yards out.

DePaul controlled play throughout most of the opening half, outshooting Valpo 9-1.

The Crusaders lone goal came with just 1:02 remaining in the contest as Emily King (Colona, Ill./United Township H.S.) tallied her third marker of the season, converting on a penalty kick.

Valpo had several other opportunities in the second half as they outshot the Blue Demons 8-1 in the second frame, evening up shots at ten for the match.

Templin made two first half saves for the Brown and Gold, while Danielle Guerra (Chesterton, Ind./Chesterton H.S.) made one stop in the second half.

Lindsey Deason was forced to make just one save in the first half for DePaul (9-7), while Megan Pekala pushed aside three Crusader scoring attempts in the second stanza.

Valparaiso (5-9-1) will return to action on Sunday afternoon when the Crusaders host Butler. Kickoff is slated for noon at Eastgate Field.
