Junior Mimi Vaintrub scored her first two goals of the season to help lead the Forester women's soccer team to a 5-2 victory Saturday night at Lawrence University.
Vaintrub's first score of the night came on a header over the goalkeeper and broke a 2-2 tie with just 1:25 to play in the firat half. Senior Kyle Chavarria and sophomore Cath Auger-Morin assisted on the goal.
Lawrence had scored the first goal of the night eight minutes into the contest. The score remained 1-0 until the 32:50 mark when Chavarria scored for the first time in 2016. The Foresters took the lead less than three minutes later on senior Lindsay Hartup's team-high-tying fourth goal of the season.
The Vikings knotted the game at two at the 40:22 mark.
The Foresters had a 19-8 advantage in shots in the first half and out-shot the home team 19-1 in the game's final 45 minutes.
The visitors added to their lead on freshman Emma Byrne's second score of the season less than six minutes into the second half. Vaintrub then closed out the scoring in the 80th minute with assists credited to juniors Shari Jacobsin and Sami Troost.
Lake Forest senior goalkeeper Rachel Tenuta made four saves in the first half and earned her 42nd career victory, one shy of the program record. Sophomore Carrie Wynkoop took over at halftime and blanked the home team for the final 45 minutes.
The Foresters are now 6-4-1 overall this season and 2-1-1 in Midwest Conference play. Lawrence fell to 1-8-0 overall and 0-3-0 in the league.
Lake Forest will host Milwaukee School of Engineering in a non-conference game Sunday afternoon at 3:30.
