Women's Soccer Prevails in a Battle of the Birds

Women's Soccer Prevails in a Battle of the Birds

Toccoa Falls, G.A. – The Warren Wilson College women's soccer team defeated Toccoa Falls College Tuesday, 4-1. The Owls improve to 5-3-1 and are unbeaten in their last six matches.

The Owls came out strong against the Screaming Eagles of Toccoa and dominated play from the beginning. Freshman Pamela Moore took the lead for the Owls in the 13th minute when the midfielder took a long-range shot that found the back of the net over the goalkeeper. Not two minutes later, sophomore Chloe Riess got on the scoreboard to give the Owls a commanding 2-0 lead. The heat would play a factor and the Owls slowed a bit towards the end of the first half. The Screaming Eagles would capitalize on this and score in the 34th minute. The momentum had switched and now the Owls were holding on going into halftime.

The second half would be all Warren Wilson. Riess would add a brace in the 50th minute and the 62nd minute junior Jazmin Featherstone would make the score 4-1. Featherstone leads the Owls in scoring with 9 goals on the season.

The Owls outshot the Screaming Eagles 13-6. Junior Susie Lusardi made 2 saves on the night.

Up next, the #5 Owls take on #6 Johnson & Wales Charlotte at home, Saturday, October 5th at 1 pm.
