SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Senior goalkeeper Brittany Jagger made a career-high 17 saves as the LMU women's soccer team fell, 2-0, to No. 9 Santa Clara Friday night in West Coast Conference action.
Jagger's save count against the Broncos bested her previous career-high by four, a feat she achieved on Sept. 17, 2011 vs. then No. 2 UCLA. Already the program's career save leader with 328 saves (and counting), Jagger came just two shy of the single-game record of 19, set by Celeste Adams versus BYU in 1995.
In Santa Clara, the Lions faced their sixth top-25 ranked opponent of the season, and the lone remaining unabated WCC team at 6-0-0. The Broncos got on the board in the 23rd minute with a goal by Jordan Jesolva.
Despite 35 total shots in the match for Santa Clara, the Lions nearly held the one-goal spread for the balance of the game. But Sofia Huerta netted the insurance score with 48 seconds remaining for the final spread.
LMU closes out its final road trip of the year on Sunday, facing San Francisco at Negoesco Stadium at noon. The match is the first in an LMU/USF doubleheader as the two men's squads follow in a 3 p.m. kick off.
