JAMESTOWN, N.D. -- The women’s soccer team from Rocky Mountain College won 2-1 over Jamestown College on Sunday to run its season record to 10-0-1 and give coach Richard Duffy his 100th victory at the school.

Senior midfielder Kirsty Montignani and senior forward Lauren Brophy scored first-half goals for the Battlin’ Bears, who overcame an early 1-0 deficit. Duffy, in his 11th season as head coach, now has a 100-72-7 record with the women’s team at Rocky.

"It is always good to get 100 wins at the same school," Duffy, in his 11th season at Rocky, said. "I am pretty excited to get number 100 with the group of kids we have."

In the women's match, Kirsty Montignani scored the first goal and Lauren Brophy scored what would be the game-winner in the 40th minute. The Bears led 2-1 at intermission.

Montignani now has 18 goals this season.

Montignani, who recently became Rocky’s all-time scoring leader, has 18 goals this season and 43 for her four-year career. Both are school records.

"It was a solid performance all-around," Duffy said. "We were down by a goal and the players responded."

In the men’s game, Rocky received two second-half goals from junior forward Oliver Gore and the Bears beat Jamestown 3-1.

Gore scored in the 69th and 85th minutes as the Bears shook off an early 1-0 hole.

Freshman midfielder Brandon Loeffler chipped in with a first-half goal and later assisted on one of Gore’s goals.

The men are 10-1-1 this season, with Gore providing 17 goals. His 17 goals is a single-season record for Rocky and his 41 career goals are also a record.

Rocky’s men and women will be in Salt Lake City on Sunday to play Westminster College in Frontier Conference matches.
