EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (blugolds.com)- The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire women's soccer team traveled to Northland College on Wednesday night, coming away with a dominant 6-0 victory.
Eau Claire opened up the scoring in the 22nd minute off a strike from Courtney Slowinski (Fr.-Byron, MN) and an assist from Kayla Jedrzejewski (So.-New Berlin, WI/Eisenhower). It was Slowinski's first goal in her collegiate career.
