Women's soccer: UIS roll to win

Carin Fearing had two goals to lead an offensive explosion for the University of Illinois Springfield as the Prairie Stars rolled to a 5-1 win over Missouri S&T in a Great Lakes Valley Conference match Sunday at Kiwanis Stadium.

The Prairie Stars, 3-4-1 overall and 2-4 in the GLV C, started the scoring when Eileen Kenny scored off a feed from Kim Tokarski just over six minutes into the contest.

The Miners (4-4, 2-4) tied it at the 23:30 mark as Lauren Todd scored from an assist from Kelsey Salzman. But the Stars regained the lead just before halftime when Fearing — on assists from Erin Egolf and Ally Redington — scored the first of her goals at the 40:28 mark.

The win was featured by the State Journal-Register on September 24, 2012.
