Senior midfielder Dana Schmidt scored two goals and the Lakeland College women's soccer team snapped its seven-game losing streak in a 3-1 win over Maranatha Baptist Bible College Thursday afternoon in Watertown, Wis.
The Crusaders got on the board first when they netted a goal in the seventh minute.
The Muskies (4-10, 3-5 NAC) came alive in the second half as they scored three unanswered goals led by senior forward Lindsay Rogers (Sheboygan). Rogers started Lakeland's comeback in the 49th minute as she capped her 11th goal of the season.
Schmidt (Menasha) gave the Muskies the lead at the 64:47 mark on an assist from senior midfielder Kristi Borts (Milwaukee) and scored the insurance goal in the 88th minute to give the Muskies the Northern Athletics Conference victory. Schmidt scored her second goal on a header off a corner kick by Borts.
"In the first five minutes we were slow to start," said head coach Tony Pierce. "We gained possession and were able to contain it for the rest of the half. We made adjustments at halftime and it was great to come back and win the game. Lindsay (Rogers) played well and kept things going for us, especially when they double-teamed her. Dana (Schmidt) did a great job stepping up when Lindsay was double-teamed."
Freshman goalkeeper Katelyn Streeter (Oakfield) recorded three saves.
Lakeland returns to NAC action on Oct. 15 as they host first-place Aurora University in the college's homecoming game. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
