BETHANY, W.Va. (Sept. 21, 2019) — The Phoenix women’s soccer team traveled today to take on the Bison of Bethany College. The Phoenix (4-2-1, 0-0) tied with the Bison (0-5-1. 0-0) 2-2 after regulation and two periods of overtime. 

How It Happened: 

After a scoreless first half, things picked up in the second. Bethany was able to score two goals in about 12 minutes, tipping the score in their favor 2-0 with twenty-seven minutes remaining in regulation. 

Wilson would answer back. Freshman Bailey Miller (Charles Town, W.Va., Washington)  got the scoring started as she was able to blast one by the keeper, making it 2-1, still in favor of the Bison, with twenty-one minutes remaining. 

The Phoenix kept the pressure on as freshman Rachel Rodriguez (Hedgesville, W.Va., Hedgesville) was able to get a shot off but the equalizer came in the eighty-first minute of play. Senior Noemi Regan (Chesapeake, VA., Homeschooled) found the back of the net with the equalizing goal, making it 2-2. Neither team was able to find another goal and the match would end in a 2-2 draw.
