ASHLAND, Ore. — When a goalie sees 32 shots from the opposing team, you expect a couple to sneak by based on volume alone. But when Jessie Selby is between the pipes.
Selby took care of all 14 shots on goal in a 1-0 win over Division II opponent Sonoma State, including a penalty kick she smothered on the goalline. Those 14 saves were the highest single-game total for an SOU keeper since 2006, according to an SOU athletics press release.
The sophomore helped secure the Raiders first win over an NCAA Division II opponent since 2012.
In three starts, Selby has faced 56 shots, made 24 saves and only allowed a single goal.
In addition to the win over Sonoma State, Selby helped lift SOU to upsets over two ranked opponents (Vanguard and Westmont).
