Taylor Will

Women's Soccer

The SCIAC's scoring leader added two more goals as Cal Lutheran went on to claim the conference post-season tournament this past Saturday. Will has scored 19 goals this season, currently placing her seventh on the program's single-season scoring list.

After being held scoreless in her first two games against Redlands, the freshman phenom scored twice including the game-winner in a 3-1 tournament semifinal victory. On Saturday, Will was one of five Regals to convert during a penalty kick shootout victory in the tournament final against Claremont-Mudd-Scripps.

Cal Lutheran will host the first two rounds of the NCAA Division III West Region Tournament. CLU will face UC Santa Cruz on Saturday night in its first round contest.

The senior quarterback accounted for 356 total yards of offense and three touchdowns in a 61-31 road win over Chapman.

Laudenslayer completed 16-of-21 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns. He also recorded the first 100-yard rushing game of his career doing so on only 13 carries.

He currently leads the SCIAC in passer efficiency this season. Laudenslayer has completed over 65 percent of his attempts, thrown for 17 touchdowns and nearly 2,000 yards in eight games thus far.
