Evans scores game-winning goal for Chapman
Healed from a concussion that sidelined her for the first 10 games of the season, Chapman University senior forward Aimee Evans of Ketchum scored the game-winning goal Oct. 10 in Chapman’s 1-0 women’s soccer road win over Pomona-Pitzer at Claremont, Ca. It was the eighth game-winning goal in Evans’ four-year Panthers career.
Evans led Chapman with 10 goals as a junior and 12 as a sophomore, but last Wednesday’s goal was her first of 2012, in her fifth game back from the head injury.
Chapman (10-5-0, 5-5-0 SCIAC league) was won four of the five games since her Oct. 3 return to the lineup. The Panthers are seeking their third winning season in four years, interrupted only by last fall’s 7-8-3 campaign. Chapman has five games left in the regular season starting today, Oct. 17 at home in Orange, against LaVerne.
Evans, a 2009 Wood River High School graduate, is the Hailey school's third-leading career goal scorer with 75 goals. A daughter of Rich and Juli Evans of Ketchum, she was the leader of the 18-2-1 Wolverine squad in 2008 that won the school's second straight State 4A girls’ soccer tournament consolation crown.
