It was a successful day for the women’s soccer team as they beat Southeastern Louisiana 4-0 with a four goal performance coming from Jaycie Johnson. Johnson is only the fifth player in the history of the NCAA Tournament to score this many goals during a match and is the only freshman to ever meet this goal.

The Huskers, who are ranked number 10 right now, are on the fifth best streak for wins in the school’s history with ten games and out of the last 18 matches they have won 17 of them. This is the first time that this has happened for Nebraska since 2000.

After the success of this match, the Huskers will move on to the next round of the NCAA Tournament. They will face the winner of the matchup between Boston College and Northeastern. The next round of the tournament will take place on Friday, the 22, but the location and time will not be announced until next Sunday.

The Huskers are hoping to land in the Sweet 16 for its seventh year with a victory next week.
