LONG BEACH - The Long Beach State women's soccer team took an early lead and never looked back in a 3-0 win over the University of Hawaii Sunday afternoon at George Allen Field.
The 49ers improved to 4-2 on the season and also remained undefeated at home with a 3-0 record. The Rainbow Wahine dropped to 0-5.
Junior Nadia Link continued to shine for LBSU as she scored twice while also finishing with an assist. It was Link's second consecutive multiple-goal game and she has now found the back of the net in the last four matches.
Senior Kaitlyn Gustaves played the entire 90 minutes in between the posts, notching one save in her second shutout of the year.
The 49ers got on the board at the 8:11 mark when Gordon netted her third goal of the season. The play started with Link sending a through pass to Mack, who beat sliding UH goalkeeper Kanani Taaca to the ball, poking it to Gordon on one touch. Gordon was then left with an open net from about six yards out.
LBSU struck again just over seven minutes later as Garza found Link on the right wing, who then made a move on her defender to get open before sending a shot to the far post. Long Beach State maintained a 2-0 cushion for the remainder of the half.
The 49ers added one more early in the second period. In the 48th minute, Hubbard sent a cross from the left side and Link timed her run down the middle of the box perfectly as she connected for the final goal.
LBSU dominated possession throughout the game, owning a 15-to-7 advantage in shots and an 8-0 edge in corner kicks. The 49ers' 15 attempts were a season high, as were their nine shots on frame.
Long Beach State is back in action on Friday, Sept. 9, when it entertains Pac-12 foe California at George Allen Field. Kick-off is set for 4:30 p.m.
