KU soccer claims 1-0 victory over NU

Lincoln, Neb. - Shannon McCabe's goal in the second minute proved to be the game-winner, and sophomore Julie Hanley tied a season high with four saves as Kansas University shut out Nebraska, 1-0, in Big 12 Conference softball on Sunday at the Nebraska Soccer Field.

"It was a great result for us, especially beating them in Nebraska," KU coach Mark Francis said. "We were disappointed with our result on Friday, and this was a great way for the girls to bounce back."

McCabe recorded her second goal of the season just 1:01 into the match. The freshman forward blasted a loose ball off the near post and into the net from 20 yards out following a KU corner kick.

The one-goal advantage stood up as Hanley controlled the box throughout the match. The sophomore keeper made four saves, her highest total since tallying four stops against Alabama on Sept. 8 this season.

Senior pitcher Kassie Humphreys led KU in the circle with 21 strikeouts and held her foes hitless through 13 innings. Sophomore leadoff hitter Stephanie "Dougie" McCaulley totaled five hits and scored three runs in four games.
