FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- The Weber State women's soccer team showed its resiliency on Sunday afternoon, bouncing back from Friday's loss to post a strong 2-1 victory over Northern Arizona in Big Sky Conference action.
Chansi Crompton's second-half goal was the difference. Weber State had lost 2-1 to Southern Utah on Friday, but made sure that result didn't repeat itself on Sunday by controlling second-half play.
It was NAU's first Big Sky loss of the season.
The Wildcats were able to score first off a goal from Abbey Kennedy in the 32nd minute of the first half.
Despite Weber State's goal, there was very little offense in the first half with both teams combining for four shots on goal. However, Weber State was able to posses the ball for most of the first and the Wildcats were able to capitalize on its opportunities to take the early lead.
The Lumberjacks responded with a goal in the 62nd minute with a goal from sophomore Emily Wadell off a throw-in from Mary Harrah. Harrah's throw-in was initially to Cierra Gamble, who was able to get a shot on goal.
Gamble's shot bounced off the Weber State goalkeeper's hands and Wadell was able to get the rebound and put it in the back of the net to tie the game.
Weber State regained the lead in less than 10 minutes with a goal from Crompton to give the Wildcats the 2-1 lead.
The Lumberjacks were never able to get in a rhythm as Weber State was able to control the ball most of the game and applied heavy pressure on the Lumberjacks putting up 13 shots with 10 of them being on goal.
Northern Arizona was only able to put five shots on goal in a physical match with 14 total fouls between both teams.
Weber State is now 7-3-2 on the season. More importantly, the Wildcats improved to 3-1-0 in Big Sky action.
WSU will host Portland State on Thursday, followed by Saturday's battle with Sacramento State.
