Women’s Soccer Suffers 2-1 Setback Against Capital
The women's soccer team suffered a 2-1 setback against host Capital University in the opening round of the Fort Rapids Invitational on Friday afternoon.
Capital struck first when Holly Phillips put in a pass from Kate Freshour in the 22nd minute for the 1-0 lead. Phillips notched her second goal of the game, this time an unassisted tally, to give the hosts the 2-0 advantage at the 24:45 mark. With time running down in the first half, Johnson & Wales was able to get on the board after sophomore Cat Martin (Avon, Conn.) notched an unassisted goal of her own to cut the lead to 2-1.
That would be all the scoring for the evening, however as Capital held on for the one goal win.
Maggie Donnellan had three stops for Capital in the victory while freshman Alexa Rose (Lancaster, Pa.) made three saves in the setback for Johnson & Wales.
With the loss Johnson & Wales is now 0-3 on the year while Capital improves to 2-2 for the year. JWU will return to action on Sunday, September 9th when they take on Adrian in the second round of the Fort Rapids Tournament at 11:00 a.m.
