Keyed by five second-half goals, the Creighton women beat North Dakota 6-0 Friday at Morrison Stadium for their first win of the season.
The six goals were the most for the Bluejays (1-2-0) since 2010, and their 37 shots were the most since 2005.
CU got on the board at the 12:36 mark as sophomore Kirstyn Corder stripped the ball from a defender and fired it into the back of the net from 20 yards away. Despite outshooting North Dakota 15-4 in the opening period, Creighton settled for a 1-0 lead at halftime.
But early in the second period, the Bluejay offense took over. Sophomore Alyssa Jara fielded a pass from Alissa Kohmetscher, then lofted a 6-foot crossing shot past keeper Kristi Hestdalen to make it 2-0 at 53:00.
A minute later, senior Lauren Cingoranelli made it 3-0 with shot on the left side from 35 yards away. Freshman Lauren Sullivan fed Cingoranelli the pass to create the open look. Sullivan then added an unassisted goal at 63:52.
Freshman Paige Jarsombeck notched CU's final two goals. She scored at 68:19 on an assist from freshman Ylenia Sachau, then at 89:52 from junior Stephanie Anasi.
Creighton returns to the pitch Sunday at 5 p.m. against Northern Colorado. Originally scheduled for 3 p.m., the match was moved back two hours due to excessive heat forecast in the Omaha area.
