Recapping the Weekend
• K-State registered a program first in the second weekend of action, as the Wildcats notched their first win. Kansas State downed Oakland on Aug. 26, with a 6-0 decision.
• Six different Wildcats tallied a goal in the match and junior Abby Sieperda notched the game winner in the 17th minute.
• Junior goalkeeper Miranda Larkin recorded her second straight shutout and the third of her career in the win.
• K-State completed its weekend in Michigan with a 2-0 loss at Central Michigan on Sunday. The Chippewas took the lead in the 20th minute and held off a furious second half charge by K-State to remain unbeaten this season.

Collegiate Veterans Register First K-State Goals
• During the first win in K-State history, a 6-0 decison over Oakland on Aug. 26, the Wildcats received several contributions from their collegiate soccer “veterans.”
• Of the six tallies, four were scored by players that had Division I soccer experience on their resume from a previous stop.
• The first goal of the night, and eventual game-winner, came from junior forward Abby Sieperda. Sieperda played for two seasons at Arkansas where she scored one goal in 17 matches. Friday’s tally was her first career K-State goal.
• The third goal of the night and the first half came from junior midfielder Addie Jenkins. Jenkins played in 15 matches during two seasons at Drake, but did not record a goal.
• The fourth goal of the night came from sophomore forward Tatum Wagner. Wagner played at Tennessee for a season and notched one goal in 17 matches for the Volunteers.
• The final goal of the night came from sophomore midfielder Morgan Mauck. Mauck played in 19 matches last season at Middle Tennessee State and registered four goals including two game-winning tallies. Friday night’s goal increased her collegiate career total to five goals.

Larkin Starts K-State Stint With Clean Sheets
• Junior goalkeeper Miranda Larkin has spotless in her two starts this season, as she has recorded a pair of shutouts.
• Larkin made her first K-State start against SIUE on Aug. 21. This was the first live match action the Rockwall, Texas, native had seen since Nov. 1, 2013, against Kansas in the Big 12 Championship as a member of the Oklahoma Sooners.
• Larkin backstopped the Wildcats with her second career shutout and a career-high six saves in K-State’s 0-0 double overtime draw at SIUE.
• At Oakland on Aug. 26, Larkin made five saves to register her first win at K-State and the second of her collegiate career. It was her first win since Aug. 25, 2013 against Kennesaw State.
• For the season, Larkin has 11 saves and owns a current shutout streak of 200:00. She ranks 12th in the nation in shutouts.
