SLU Women’s Soccer hosted University of Massachusetts Amherst for the final home game of the regular season Thursday night. With the 3-0 win, the Billikens set a new record for a home win streak (19), and clinched a first-round A-10 playoff game at Hermann.

SLU got to work early, with Courtney Reimer converting a PK in the 25th minute. Reimer tallied another point when Alli Klug rebounded her saved shot and found the net in the 33rd minute.

The game was 2-0 at the half, but SLU would tally one more goal. Lindsay Sands made a long pass to Evie Lavelle, and after a brief stare down, out-maneuvered the UMass goalie for an easy insurance goal.

SLU outshot UMass 26-6, on top of a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks.

Lavelle gave credit to Sands’s setup on her goal: “Lindsay just played a phenomenal ball in and I thought I was going to shank it if I didn’t go past the goalie. So, I just went around her and passed it in.”

Head Coach Katie Shields had one thing to say to Billiken fans: “Come watch this team next Saturday night!”

SLU will face St. Joseph’s at Hermann Stadium in the first-round. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28.
