Freshmen Khil, Takafuji Score Goals in Win Over Redlands

REDLANDS — The Occidental women's soccer team ended its 2013 season with a glimpse into its future.

Freshmen Julie Khil and Kylie Takafuji each had goals in Oxy's 2-1 win at Redlands in its season finale on Saturday night.

Khil scored her team-best seventh goal of the season in the 17th minute on a pass from Michaela Tsuha. Then in the second half, after Redlands tied the game up, Takafuji buried the game-winner in the 84th minute.

Erin Lau found Nicole Fox for Redlands' equalizer just 31 seconds after halftime.

Oxy had plenty of chances. The Tigers got off 20 shots with 14 of them on the frame. Tsuha led the team with four shots on goal.

The Tigers close the season 5-10-2 overall and 4-9-1 in SCIAC play.

Oxy loses two important seniors from its 2013 squad. Forward Elissa Minamishin ends her career with 27 goals and goalie Tayler Renshaw closes out hers as one of the top three Oxy goalies all-time in minutes played.
