ORANGE BEACH, Ala. – The University of Northwestern Ohio women’s soccer team moved one step closer to their goal of winning a National Championship on Monday afternoon with a 2-1 victory over The Master’s College.
The Racers (20-1-1) got two early goals to take a 2-0 lead in the first half, but UNOH needed a strong save from Nadine Stonjek in the final seconds to preserve the victory at the 2014 NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship.
UNOH got the offense rolling in the 20th minute. Rachel Head found Klara Cahynova inside the Mustangs’ penalty area, and Cahynova beat TMC goalkeeper Tita Garcia from 6-yards out to put the Racers on top 1-0.
Seven minutes later, Alice Coyne picked up her team-leading 17th goal of the season, burying a free kick from 25 yards into the upper right corner of the goal to double the UNOH advantage.

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. – The last three weeks have been an emotional roller coaster for the University of Northwestern Ohio men’s soccer team, and particularly for senior defender Luke Guy. On Monday afternoon, Guy converted the biggest chance of his collegiate career at UNOH to send the Racers to the NAIA quarterfinals.
Guy, a 5-10 defender from Birmingham, England, was called upon to take the seventh penalty kick of the Racers’ shootout against Missouri Valley College, and he scored what proved to be the deciding shot as UNOH (16-4-2) played the Vikings (15-4-1) to a 1-1 draw before advancing on penalties, 6-5.
