STAUNTON (Sept. 12, 2019) — Wilson’s womens soccer took on the Fighting Squirrels of Mary Baldwin University last night in a nonconference match. Wilson (3-1) dropped their first game of the season, falling 3-1 to a tough Mary Baldwin opponent. 

How It Happened: 

After a long lightning delay, play finally got underway with the Squirrels controlling the ball in their offensive zone early and often.

Mary Baldwin got on the board first with a goal in the thirty-second minute of play. The goal was the only one of the half for either team as the Phoenix went into halftime trailing 1-0.

The Phoenix didn’t take long to bounce back in the second half, tying the game with a goal from freshman Kat Romero (Charles Town, W.Va.) Unfortunately, the Fighting Squirrels wouldn’t take long to respond either, as they regained the lead just twelve minutes later.

Six minutes after their go-ahead goal, Mary Baldwin extended their lead with a goal, giving them a 3-1 advantage with time winding down. 

Wilson was unable to get anything going on the offensive end down the stretch, putting a halt to a great comeback. 

Inside the Box Score: 

Wilson tallied just two shots in the game, one a goal from Kat Romero. The Fighting Squirrels rattled off fifteen. Phoenix goaltender Aubrey Runkle (York, Pa., West York) collected four saves in the contest. For Romero, her goal marks her second score of the season. 

Up Next: 

The Phoenix will host Pitt-Greensburg Saturday with the game set to begin at 1:00 p.m.
