Senior Day



BROOKINGS, S.D. - The South Dakota State women's soccer team hosts its final games of the regular season beginning with Kansas City on Friday and ending with South Dakota on Sunday. The Jacks enter Friday's game with a 3-9-2 overall record, 1-3-1 in The Summit League.


SDSU continues its four-game homestand after a 1-0-1 weekend versus IUPUI and then league leader Western Illinois. The Jacks tied the Jaguars 1-1 (2 OT) on Friday before stunning the Fighting Leathernecks 2-0 on Sunday.


Diana Potterveld and Christa Nyblom lead the Jackrabbit attack with nine points apiece. Potterveld scored three goals and assisted on three more, including one assist in each game this past weekend. She is the team leader in shots (30) and shots on goal (20). Nyblom scored three goals and assisted on three more, including the game-tying goal versus IUPUI in the 79th minute. She is second on the team in shots (29) and shots on goal (16). Stacy Guijarro became the team leader in goals (4) after scoring the game-winning goal versus Western Illinois.


The back line is anchored by Megan Huegli, Caylee Costello, Dani Patterson and Courtney Higgins, who is back from injury and started her first two games of the season last weekend.


Elisa Stamatakis recorded 42 saves, four shutouts and three wins through 14 games.


Head coach Lang Wedemeyer leads the Jackrabbits in his 13th season. Wedemeyer compiled a 112-88-26 record in his first 12 seasons.




Kansas City Kangaroos – The Jacks face the Kangaroos for the fourth time in school history, the least of any Summit League opponent. SDSU leads the all-time series 3-0-0. SDSU outscored Kansas City 8-0 in the three series games, including a 5-0 win in its only home game versus the Kangaroos.


Last season, the Jacks edged the Kangaroos 1-0 in Kansas City, Mo.


The South Dakota State women's soccer team needed nearly all of regulation to find the goal, but find the goal it did, scoring in the 85th minute to beat Kansas City...


Kayla Braffet, who had not scored since the conference opener on Sept. 30, received a pass from Kelsey Ferguson and put it in the back of the net.


The Jacks held a significant statistical advantage, once again. SDSU outshot the Kangaroos 15-4, including a 10-1 shots-on-goal advantage.


Christa Nyblom and Darci Miller led the offensive attack with four shots and three shots, respectively. Each placed three shots on goal. Braffet and Ferguson took three shots and two shots on goal apiece.


Goalkeeper Kat Donovan made one save as the defense posted yet another shutout. The shutout was her 11th of the season, setting a SDSU and Summit League record for shutouts in a single season.

SDSU has held its opponents scoreless for 769 straight minutes; the last 740 coming in the first eight conference games.


Compared to recent opponents, SDSU and Kansas City have a plethora of common opponents this season.


During the non-conference season, the Kangaroos defeated Green Bay (2-0) at the SIUE Tournament in early September, tied Creighton (1-1) in Omaha and lost to Drake (4-3) in Des Moines, both in mid September.


SDSU beat Green Bay (2-0) in Green Bay to open the regular season, but dropped 2-1 decisions to both Drake and Creighton in Brookings and Omaha, respectively.


In conference play, Kansas City defeated IUPUI (1-0) in Indianapolis, defeated Oakland (2-0) and tied Fort Wayne (1-1) in Kansas City and lost to Western Illinois (4-1) in Macomb, Ill.


The Jacks defeated Western Illinois (2-0) and tied IUPUI (1-1) at home, but lost to Fort Wayne (2-1) and Oakland (1-0) on the road.


Last weekend, Kansas City defeated Oakland (2-0) and tied Fort Wayne (1-1), both in Kansas City.



South Dakota Coyotes – The Jacks face the Coyotes for the sixth time in school history, but only the second time since transitioning to Division I. South Dakota leads the all-time series 4-1-0, but SDSU won the only Division I meeting, a 2-0 win last season. The first four games, and four USD wins, were part of the North Central Conference from 2000-2003.


Last season, SDSU defeated USD 2-0 in the teams' first regular season meeting since 2003.


The South Dakota State women's soccer team scored an early goal and held on to beat South Dakota 2-0...

SDSU pushed into the Coyotes' half of the field early, recording three shots (two on goal) in the first four minutes of the game.


The Jackrabbits' pressure did not let up and paid off early.


In the 17th minute, Christa Nyblom scored her fourth goal of the season and gave the Jackrabbits a 1-0 lead. The goal tied her for the team lead.


On the assist was Kayla Braffet, who tied the career assist scoring mark at SDSU with 18 career assists. SDSU graduate Kellyn Farrell set the original mark from 2005-08.


The Jacks were on the offensive the entire first half. SDSU outshot USD 11-6, including a 6-3 shots on goal advantage. Corner kicks were 3-2 in favor of the Coyotes.


The Jacks committed three fouls and was called offside twice in the first half. South Dakota was not called for a foul or flagged for offside in the first half.


Kat Donovan made three saves in the first half.


The second half began the same way the first half had begun, as SDSU forced the Coyotes' goalkeeper to make two saves early on.


Then, like clockwork, Abby Jurgens added an insurance goal for the Jacks 23 minutes into the second half. Cori Bonte was credited with the assist.


The play gave Jurgens three goals on the season and Bonte two assists.


USD tried to climb back into the game, but the Jackrabbits' defense was too strong, as was Donovan.


SDSU held USD statistical leader Teslow to a single shot.


The final score was 2-0 in favor of the Jacks.


SDSU held its opponents scoreless for 679 straight minutes; the last 650 coming in conference play.


Donovan made six saves en route to her 10th shutout of the season, tying her for the most shutouts in a single season in both Summit League history and SDSU history. SDSU graduate Nicole Lograsso set the original mark in 2008.


Braffet led the offensive attack for the Jacks with seven shots and four shots on goal.


The two teams have numerous common opponents this season.


In non-conference play, USD defeated Northern Iowa (2-0), tied North Dakota (4-4), but lost to Creighton (3-1), Drake (2-1), Green Bay (3-1) and Iowa State (7-0).


SDSU posted a 2-4 record against the common non-conference opponents.


In the conference thus far, the Coyotes tied IUPU (0-0), but lost to Western Illinois (2-0), Omaha (3-2), Fort Wayne (3-0) and Oakland (2-0).


SDSU is 1-2-1 against common conference opponents.


Last weekend, the Coyotes dropped a pair of home games to Fort Wayne and Oakland.




IUPUI Jaguars – The South Dakota State women's soccer team battled the elements in a 1-1 (2 OT) tie versus IUPUI on Friday night at Fishback Soccer Park...

The two teams competed in poor weather conditions, as the wind gusted up to 30 miles per hour and temperatures dropped below 50 degrees.


Playing into the wind, SDSU surrendered the first goal of the game in the 16th minute. The Jaguar forward controlled a loose ball in the box and finished to the corner of the goal.


Despite holding a significant advantage in shots (7-3) and shots on goal (3-1), the Jacks trailed 1-0 at the half. SDSU took two corner kicks to one for IUPUI. SDSU was whistled for three fouls and one offsides, while IUPUI was whistled for four fouls and one offsides.


Diana Potterveld, Megan Kingston and Stacy Guijarro led the Jackrabbit attack with one shot on goal apiece.


After pressuring for nearly the entire second half, the Jackrabbits finally broke through in the 79th minute. Diana Potterveld dribbled down the right side and crossed the ball into the box, past two defenders, to an open Christa Nyblom. Nyblom struck the ball to the lower corner of the net and past the goalkeeper to tie the score at 1-1.


Both teams defended a final attack by the other to keep the game tied.


Regulation ended in a 1-1 tie.


SDSU dominated regulation offensively with the advantage in shots (19-2), shots on goal (10-1) and corner kicks (8-1). SDSU was whistled for nine fouls and two offsides, while IUPUI was whistled for five fouls and one offsides.


Dani Patterson led the Jackrabbit attack with three shots, all on goal. Potterveld and Kingston registered two shots on goal each.


SDSU played the first overtime with the wind, but was unable to find the game-winning goal. SDSU attempted two shots in the first overtime, one on goal. IUPUI did not attempt a shot in the first overtime.


The Jackrabbit defense stood tall in the second overtime, fighting off numerous attacks by the Jaguars.


The game ended in a 1-1 tie.



Western Illinois Leathernecks – The South Dakota State women's soccer team scored two goals, one in the final two minutes of each half, to stun Western Illinois on Sunday, 2-0...


With less than two minutes to play in the first half, SDSU earned its first corner kick. Christa Nyblom played the ball short to Courtney Higgins, who crossed the ball to the far post. Stacy Guijarro broke free from a defender and headed the ball to the upper right-hand corner of the goal.


The goal was her team-leading fourth of the season and the first assist for Higgins.


The Jackrabbits spent the majority of the first half fending off the Fighting Leathernecks' attack, but made its lone shot of the half count.


Western Illinois dominated the first half offensively with the advantage in shots (12-1), shots on goal (2-1) and corner kicks (3-1), but SDSU led on the scoreboard. Both teams were whistled for two fouls and no offsides.


Guijarro led the Jackrabbit attack with one goal on one shot.


Elisa Stamatakis saved both shots on goal by the Leathernecks.


The beginning of the second half was very dramatic.


Five minutes into the second half the Leathernecks' goalkeeper left the goal line and attempted to secure a cross. The cross found its mark, but a Western Illinois defender used her hand in the box to prevent a goal-scoring opportunity and received a yellow card. SDSU was awarded a penalty kick. The penalty kick by Megan Kingston was saved.


SDSU escaped a close call when a Leathernecks' forward put a shot off of the post midway through the second half.


And once again, with less than two minutes remaining in the second half, Diana Potterveld controlled the ball near the Western Illinois goal line and played it into the box to an open Alyssa Brazil. Brazil scored from the penalty mark to put the game out of reach.


The goal was the second of the season for Brazil and the third assist for Potterveld.


Western Illinois finished with the advantage in shots (15-10) and corner kicks (5-2), but SDSU led in shots on goal (5-2). Western Illinois was whistled for nine fouls and one offsides, while SDSU was whistled for three fouls and one offsides.


Nyblom led the attack with three shots, two on goal.


Stamatakis made two total saves.
