NORTHFIELD, Minn. – Nora Mertz (So./Evanston, Ill./Evanston) notched another early goal and lifted the Carleton College women’s soccer team to a 1-0 triumph over Nebraska Wesleyan in the Knights home opener on Saturday.

Fans that arrived late to Bell Field missed all the scoring as Mertz scored in the sixth minute. All three of her scores this season have come in the opening 10 minutes of a contest. She currently ranks second among MIAC players in goals scored this year.

The Knights (2-0-0) out-shot their guests, 17-5, and Anna Roethler (Fy./St Louis Park, Minn./St Louis Park) registered three saves in recording her second straight clean sheet.

Libby Franchot (Fy./Minneapolis, Minn./Blake School) and Ruby Kazemi (Jr./Missoula, Mont./Hellgate) paced the Carleton attack, registering five and four shots apiece.

The Knights will travel to face UW-Stout on Friday, Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.
