Kalhor sets record in Saints soccer win

CEDAR RAPIDS — Ashford pulled away with three goals in the second half — one that gave senior Soroush Kalhor the all-time scoring record at the school — and beat Coe 4-2 in college men’s soccer Tuesday.

Kalhor, from Rock Island, Ill., broke a 1-1 tie and pulled away from former Mount St. Clare sweeper Seyi Famodu with his 33rd career goal at the 54-minute, 57-second mark in the second half. It was his second goal of the season.

Geraldo Garza and Mike Lentini added unassisted goals later in the half to stretch the lead. Vedran Ilic scored the lone goal of the first half, but Coe pulled even in the 52nd minute on the first of two goals by Reid Galbraith.

“We didn’t start out as well as what we would have liked to in the second half, but overall, we played well enough to get another win,” Ashford coach Richard Markham said. “Another great defensive effort helped, and it was nice to have four different players in the scoring column.”

Ashford women post 2-0 shutout

CEDAR RAPIDS — Junior goalkeeper Kylie Willet made three saves, including a save on a penalty kick, to preserve the lead in Ashford’s 2-0 win against Coe in women’s soccer Tuesday.

Sophomore defender Cate Sarrazin, who scored a pair of goals in an exhibition game before the season began, scored her first official goal. The score at 47 minutes, 16 seconds, broke a scoreless tie. Freshman Amanda Campos added her first goal in the 63rd minute to make it 2-0.

“Our players had to work really hard to get this win,” AU coach Mick Regan said. “With several players still not at 100 percent, we needed a collaborative team effort. We received good performances from our bench.”
