KCU women’s soccer crowned Mid-East region champs

Oct. 31, 2012 — This past weekend, the Kentucky Christian University women’s soccer team had another taste of Mid-East championship gold as it defeated rival Ohio Chrisitan University, 6-0, on Saturday afternoon.

With the 6-0 win over the Trailblazers in the Mid-East Region Championship, the Lady Knights will be representing its region in the NCCAA National Tournament Nov. 7-10 in Kissimmee, Fla.

Freshmen midfielders Erin Dillow and Kymmy Owens were big offensive threats for the Lady Knights Saturday.

Dillow scored the first two goals of the game, the only goals in the first half. The first goal came off a great through ball by sophomore defender Kelsey Thomas. The second goal was a diving header off a Kymmy Owens cross.

Owens scored three of KCU’s four goals in the second half, the fourth goal was an own goal by Ohio Christian. The final goal of the game came from Owens off the assist from junior forward Amanda Chambless.

KCU’s defense, led by Thomas and senior defender Kayla Blevins, for Kentucky Christian was particularly strong, keeping OCU out of their half of the field for the majority of the game.

Coach Josh Miller said the Regional Tournament win was a great one for his team.

"I am thankful for being able to work with the 2012 Kentucky Christian University Women's Soccer Team,” Miller said. “I am very proud of them. We have had on and off times throughout the season, but our showing in the Mid-East Region was still very good. I am excited to again have the opportunity to represent our university at the national tournament. We are excited and will be ready to play.”
