Women's Soccer Wins Second Consecutive, Knock of Toccoa Falls

Swannanoa, N.C. – The Warren Wilson College women's soccer team won today's matchup against the visiting Toccoa Falls College, 2-1.

The Owls started off strong scoring a quick goal just :17 seconds into the match. The Owls attacked the flank and junior Allyson Nestler found freshmen Chloe Riess who tapped it home.

The Eagles would finally find their grove and became dangerous. They eventually tied the match 1-1 at the 15th minute mark. The remaining first half was back-and-forth both teams having equal chances on goal. With seven minutes left in the half the Owls would get the game winning goal when Riess would add her brace for the evening.

In the second half of play, both teams had chances even though the Eagles had more dangerous shots on goal. The Owls defense came up big many times. The Eagles outshot the Owls but 13-9. Sophomore Susie Lusardi tallied 8 saves.

"That was our third game in five days which is tough physically and mentally.  I was definitely a little nervous in the second half because Toccoa is a good team moving the ball and getting in behind us but I'm proud that we are finding ways to get results," said head coach Lydia Vandenbergh.

The Owls return to play home Saturday, October 13th against #5 Central Penn at 3pm.
