Kent State’s soccer team won their fourth straight match of the season against Indiana State University Friday.

Senior forward Jenna Hellstrom became the Flashes’ all-time leader in points as she blew past the defense twice to net a goal and an assist.

Junior midfielder Kristen Brots headed the ball into the top left corner after an assist from Hellstrom in the 16th minute. Hellstrom kept the momentum going, with a shot that slipped past the Sycamores goalie in the 18th minute.

The game almost slipped away from the Flashes, though, after a Sycamore goal in the 86th minute.

“We had to calm down and keep (the ball),” Hellstrom said. “We’d been pushing for 85 minutes (and couldn’t let it) go in the next five.”

Kent State was able to hold on to win the game 2-1.

The Flashes start conference play next week at the University of Toledo on Friday at 4 p.m.
