COFFEYVILLE — Fresh off two of the biggest victories in the history of the program, the Cowley College women's soccer team continued its winning ways Wednesday with a 4-1 win at Coffeyville.

The Lady Tigers (6-2, 4-1 Jayhawk East) remained atop the conference standings.

The Lady Red Ravens (6-2, 2-1) jumped out to a 1-0 lead on a goal by Ana Ferriera Carolina. However, Manuela Oliveira knotted the score on a penalty kick, her fifth goal of the season.

Leticia Belloni sent a shot from outside the box with a bit more than seven minutes left in the first half to give Cowley the lead for good.

Coffeyville scored an own goal and Belloni scored her second of the game in the second half.

"This was a huge road win for us, especially knowing Coffeyville is a good team," Cowley coach Roberto dos Santos said. "Leticia came off the bench and did a really good job for us."

Lotta Dufva registered two saves in goal and saw solid play from defenders Kamila Mroziewicz, Letycia Bonifacio, Lidia Vicente and Harlie Findley.

"Those players have good chemistry together and are very organized back there," assistant coach Tanner Brock said.

The Lady Tigers return home at 2 p.m. Saturday to face Neosho County. The Lady Panthers (4-3-1, 1-2) are coming off a double-overtime tie against No. 6-ranked Butler.

"Neosho (County) will be pumped up to play us after playing Butler tough," Dos Santos said. "We have got to stay hungry and play with intensity."
