RIO GRANDE, Ohio — Mia Persson scored a pair of goals and Laerke Lillelund Michaelsen handed out a pair of assists to lead third-ranked Lindsey Wilson College to a 5-0 win over the University of Rio Grande, Saturday afternoon, in a Mid-South Conference women’s soccer match at sun-splashed Evan E. Davis Field.

Katarina Simic, Cecilia Ekstrand and Elisha Fry also had goals for the Blue Raiders, who improved to 7-2-1 overall and 4-0 in the MSC.

Rio Grande, which suffered a third straight loss, dropped to 4-7 overall and 1-4 in league play.

The RedStorm was outshot, 33-2, and threatened to score just once in the contest.

Simic got the scoring underway with an unassisted marker 12-1/2 minutes into the game and Persson scored her first goal just 46 seconds later off a feed from Saeda Sueki to make it 2-0.

The Blue Raiders tacked on a pair of goal within 90 seconds of each other inside the opening five minutes of the second stanza to officially settle the issue.

Ekstrand scored at 47:47 and Persson found the net again at 49:19, with Lilleund Michaelsen assisting on both, to extend the cushion to 4-0.

Lindsey Wilson’s final goal came with 4:25 left to play when Fry scored off of a free kick after being fouled just outside of the box.

Rio Grande’s lone scoring opportunity came on a breakaway by sophomore forward Allana Shelton with just over 16 minutes left in the first half, but Lindsey Wilson net-minder Josephine Frigge made the save to keep the shutout intact.

Frigge went the first 69:32 in goal before giving way to Loren Cerafice, who also had a save in her 20:28 of action.

Sophomore goal keeper Allison Keeney stopped 11 shots for the RedStorm.

Rio Grande played a fourth straight contest without the services of freshman forward Courtney Young - the team’s third-leading scorer - as she continues to nurse a leg injury.

The RedStorm return to action on Wednesday night, hosting WVU Tech in a 5 p.m. kickoff at Evan E. Davis Field.
