W&J Falls To Wooster Late 2-1
WOOSTER, Ohio -- Despite being outshot by a 26-4 margin, the Washington & Jefferson College women's soccer team hung tough on the road at Wooster before falling 2-1 on Friday evening.
The Presidents (0-4) grabbed the lead midway through the first half when senior forward Chrissy Marcius (North Huntington, Pa./Norwin) fired in her 24th career goal. The tally ties her with Spencer Ahrenholtz '10 for fifth place on the school's career goal record. Senior midfielder Kelsey Kraus (Sewickley, Pa./Quaker Valley) assisted on the goal.
The Fighting Scots (4-2-1) tied the game just under 10 minutes later when goalkeeper Michele Ring came up the field to take a free kick and scored from 40 yards out.
The score remained that way for 37 minutes until Lily Mohre set up Erika Kay for Wooster's first lead of the night. The Fighting Scots had nearly every scoring chance in the second half, outshooting the Presidents 17-1.
Sophomore Mattie Follen (Moon Twp., Pa./Moon) kept the Presidents alive by making 12 saves. Ring notched a pair of saves in the victory.
W&J, which has played three of its four matches on the road, attempts to snap its season-opening losing streak Sunday at Pitt-Greensburg (4:00 pm).
