The Waves clap for the home fans at Tari Frahm Rokus Field as they celebrate their 13th win of the season. The Waves’ next game was on the road against Santa Clara on Wednesday, Oct. 20, which resulted in a 4-0 loss.
The Waves benefited from two quick-fire goals by freshman midfielder Tabitha Laparl and redshirt senior defender Kelsey Hill, fewer than two minutes apart midway through the first half. Sophomore forward Tori Waldeck added a goal midway through the second half to seal the victory.
The Waves defense posted its 10th shutout of the season, and has not conceded a goal in the past 694 minutes of play. Redshirt senior goalkeeper Zoe Clevely was spotless once again, and led the WCC in save percentage (.881) and goals-against average (0.36) after the match.
Now 9-1 on the road and 13-2 in the season, following a 4-0 away loss to Santa Clara on Wednesday, Oct. 20, Pepperdine sits at third in the WCC.
