CLINTON, S.C. – Behind a goal in each half, Radford women's soccer shut out Presbyterian 2-0 on the road in Big South action from Edens Field on Thursday evening. The victory and fifth clean sheet of the season extends the Highlanders' (6-2-1, 2-0-1 Big South) unbeaten streak to six matches.
Che Brown charted four saves for her second straight shutout and fourth of the year. The junior keeper is now just one shy of second on the career charts after her 18th clean sheet.
Sophomore Kara Nay (Montclair, Va./Forest Park) and senior Megan Rhodes (Blacksburg, Va./Blacksburg) each found paydirt for the third time this season. Rhodes has done it over the last four contests.
Nay netted the first goal of the match, striking from 35 yards out in the 18th minute, a lead the Highlanders would not relinquish.
Radford, which outshot PC (0-10, 0-3) in the first half, 9-4, had a golden opportunity to take a 2-0 lead, but freshman Kim Harkins (Virginia Beach, Va./Cox)' chance from just outside the six in the 24th minute was cleared off the line by a Blue Hose defender's head.
Rhodes doubled the lead and gave Radford some breathing room in the 70th minute when she blasted the ball high into the back of the net from just outside the box.
The Highlanders, paced by Rhodes' match-best four attempts, outshot the Blue Hose, 14-9 and held a slight, 6-5 advantage in corner kicks.
Radford heads over to UNC Asheville on Saturday for a 2:00 p.m. contest with the Bulldogs.
