LINCOLN — Nebraska outshot Southeast Missouri State 30-3 — and got two goals apiece from freshman Jaycie Johnson and junior Mayme Conroy — en route to a 4-0 season-opening win Friday at the Nebraska Soccer Field.
The Huskers took the lead less than three minutes into the contest when Johnson’s shot from the right side was deflected toward Conroy, who put it into the left side of the goal for a 1-0 lead.
Conroy, an Omaha Skutt graduate, got her second goal of the season early in the second half, when she headed in a corner kick from Samantha Areman, a junior from Firth, Neb.
Nebraska extended its lead to 3-0 when Johnson earned her first collegiate goal in the 52nd minute.
Johnson made it a multi-goal debut with just minutes remaining as she was taken down in the penalty area after she eluded a Redhawks defender. The Lake Winnebago, Mo., native converted the ensuing penalty kick.
Nebraska’s 30 shots on offense equaled its season-high from last year.
Freshman Kelly Schatz made a pair of saves in 17 minutes of action after she came on in relief for starting goalkeeper Emma Stevens.
Stevens did not have to make a save as the Redhawks did not attempt a shot until the 75th minute.
The Huskers next play at noon Sunday when they host Cincinnati.
