WPSL Wrap-Up: Week 7

With so much action in the league this week, we spotlighted Salvo’s comprehensive victory over Manitou. The other results are as follows:


St Croix Legacy 3-2 Rochester United

Lexi Huber (from Kallianne Mogler) and then Lainey Murdzek (from Avery Murdzek) put Legacy ahead 2-0 within the opening half-hour. Sydney Tucker got a double (both unassisted, in the 62nd and 69th minutes) to tie the match but Lainey Murdzek popped up in the 85th minute (this time from Claire Cater) to steal the three points for the hosts.


Mankato United 2-1 Joy Athletic Club

Goals from Ella Huettl and Jadyn Chee for the hosts carried United past their visitors’ late goal from Ashley Bennett.  

MapleBrook Fury 1-6 Minnesota Thunder

Kendall Stadden’s tally for the hosts was met with thunderous intent with goals by Grace Estby, Caroline Bailey, Paige Kalal, Izzy Engle and Paige Peltier. 


Dakota Fusion 0-5 Sioux Falls City

Sioux Falls City kept pace with Salvo, with an explosion of scoring from Katharina Oelschlager – three goals in seven minutes (although one was probably an own goal) providing the dagger. Oelschlager is credited with four goals overall from the game and Yui Fujii opened the scoring, after an opening 30 minutes where they had repeatedly failed to connect on final passes but had otherwise knocked on the door.  


Manitou FC 1-3 Joy AC

The basement battle went the way of the team from St Louis Park. Brooke Quam put Joy ahead, before Tatum Trettel equalized. Brooke Nast and Ashley Bennett made sure of the points. 

MapleBrook Fury 2-1 St Croix Legacy

Madalyn Grate and Olivia Lovick scored for Fury. Legacy responded with a goal from Laney Murdzek. 


Minnesota Thunder 7-0 Dakota Fusion

Izzy Engle scored a hat trick, Grace Estby picked up two and Paige Peltier and Caroline Bailey scored single goals. 

Sioux Falls City 5-0 Mankato United

Hailee Christensen with two, Katharina Oelschlager, Yui Fujii and Mia Bosch kept Sioux Falls in the hunt for the playoff spot. 

Rochester United 0-6 Salvo

Khyah Harper scored a hat trick, Sophia Baresteh got two and Katelyn Buelke scored as the team from the Twin Cities lined up a potential playoff decider on Friday in Sioux Falls.
