2013 Game-by-Game
Kylie Greischar (pronounced Gresher) started all 24 contests in her final season with the Huskers as a key defender at the right-back position. 


Greischar posted her first point at NU with an assist when she sent in a crossing pass to Katie Kraeutner for the equalizer in a 2-1 win against San Diego at the Kansas Invitational on Sept. 15.

The Overland Park, Kan. native recorded the game-winning helper in the 1-0 home victory over Ohio State on Oct. 25. She connected on a long pass from the right side to an awaiting Mayme Conroy who headed the ball up and over the OSU keeper from 15 out.

Greischar helped even the score in the early minutes of NU's Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinal victory over Minnesota when she once again found Conroy on a great cross into the box that Conroy tapped in with her right foot for the finish as NU advanced with a 4-1 decision.

The highlight of Kylie's season occurred in the Big Ten Tournament Semifinal victory over Indiana. Greischar notched her first-collegiate goal in the 68th minute which resulted in the game-winning tally of the Huskers' 3-1 victory. She dribbled to her left across the top of the box and produced a low, left-footed attempt that fooled the keeper into the bottom right.

Greischar saw at least 90 minutes of playing time in seven total matches on her way to averaging more than 79 minutes per match and a pair of 2013 Big Ten Championships.

2012 (Junior)
Greischar saw action in 18 games for the Huskers in 2013, including a pair of starts.

Greischar was part of a defensive unit that posted three shutouts on the season, while holding opponents to a goal or less nine times.

Greischar notched her first career shot as a Husker in a 4-0 home win over Southeast Missouri State on Sept. 8, totaling a pair of shots against the Redhawks. Delivared her first career shot on goal as a Husker in a 2-1 overtime win at Iowa on Oct. 18.

2011 (Sophomore)

Greischar played two games at defender for the Huskers in 2011 after transferring from Indiana State. The Huskers outscored their opposition 14-1 in the two games she played, including a 6-0 shutout of Arkansas on Sept. 2 at the Nebraska Soccer Field.
   
2010 (Freshman at Indiana State)
