Cleveland State sophomore Elaina Walnoha made her first career goal a memorable one, scoring with three minutes left in the first half to give the Vikings a 1-0 win at Northern Kentucky on Oct. 21.
The victory over the League-leading and defending League champion Norse allowed the Vikings to clinch a berth in the Horizon League tournament for the first time since 2015.
Walnoha's goal came at the 42:08 mark and it was her first tally in 27 career matches. Jamie Daniels made four saves to earn the shutout.
Under the direction of first-year head coach Dallas Boyer, the win over NKU was the fifth League victory of the season for the Vikings, tied for the most in a season in program history. It was also CSU's ninth win of the year, tied for the second most in program history.
