Late goal lifts BW over WC women 1-0


WILMINGTON – Baldwin Wallace University scored the game’s only goal in the 77th minute Saturday en route to a 1-0 victory over the Wilmington College women’s soccer team in Ohio Athletic Conference action.

Rachel Bender found Morgan Gray off a corner kick for the game’s only goal.

The Fightin’ Quakers outshot the Yellow Jackets 10-5 including a 7-4 margin in shots on goal, but failed to score a goal for the fifth consecutive contest.

Emma Bruno made seven saves and earned the win for BW while Leda Moyer saved 3-of-4 shots in the loss.

A trio of Quakers – Taylor Leake, Hanna Greaney and Tiffany Hayes – all fired two shots while Bender.

Both teams had to deal with a blistering wind and cold conditions during the entire game.

The Quakers return to action at Capital University Wednesday.
