MARSHALL, Mo. – An early second-half goal allowed Missouri Valley to slip by the Evangel women's soccer team, 1-0, Tuesday evening in Heart action.

Missouri Valley scored the game's only goal in the 57th minute by Amador Mejias on an unassisted attempt. Despite being shutout, Evangel showed fight in one of the best efforts for the Crusaders this season.

"While we didn't get the result we wanted, I am beyond proud of how the ladies played this evening," Evangel head coach Bruce Deaton said. "We put together two very good halves of soccer and truly played a great soccer match."

Evangel finished with six shots in the match as the Vikings earned 11 shots with six coming on goal. Goalkeeper Josie Gregory finished with three saves for Evangel while Caitlyn Cox added one save.

Evangel returns to Coryell Field Saturday to host Graceland. First touch on Homecoming Saturday is scheduled for 1 p.m.
