Nugent lifts SMNW soccer over ONW
Overland Park Shawnee Mission Northwest sophomore Megan Nugent scored in the 56th minute, and that's all the Cougars needed to edge Olathe Northwest, 1-0, on Tuesday.
SM Northwest coach Todd Boren has called upon Nugent, sophomore Brooke Haley and freshman Adriana Bobki to help generate an attack up front along with seniors Amelia Hoelting and Erica Esch. Nugent also scored two goals in a 5-2 over Lawrence on April 7.
Courtney Jones earned the shutout between the pipes for SM Northwest.
The win for the Cougars also came in their Pink Out game. The Cougars were decked out in pink uniforms to raise awareness for breast cancer.
The Cougars (6-4) will be back in action at 7 p.m. Tuesday at SM South.
