KEARNEY, Neb. - The first ever regular season college soccer game played at the University of Nebraska-Kearney's Ron & Carol Cope Stadium was won by the Mesa State Mavericks women's soccer team.

The Lady-Mavs defeated the Winona State Warriors 3-1 on Thursday afternoon.

Winona scored first in the 14th minute when Jordyn Strege stuck a shot in the Mavs net from about 20 yards out. But that was the only lead Winona would have the entire game.

One minute and five seconds later Jessica Kent would tie the game at one with a goal off the corner kick by Sherilyn Stoffel. Daniela Ramirez would give Mesa the 2-1 lead witha goal just before the half from about 10 yards out.

Kira Brannan added the exclamation point in the 46th minute when she got the rebound off a direct kick and put it into the net.

The Mavs will be back in action again on Friday evening against Wayne State at 5:30 p.m.
