GREENCASTLE, Ind. – The Adrian College women's soccer team had a day off after a season opening loss at Illinois Wesleyan and traveled to DePauw University on Sunday. The Tigers were a national tournament participant a year ago after winning the North Coast Athletic Conference. Adrian picked up a big regional win with a 1-0 decision to improve to 1-1 this season.
DePauw had a more offensive-minded first half with nine total shots compared to two for the Bulldogs. Adrian held DePauw off the board and then capitalized in the second half. Junior Erin Weide scored her second goal of the season at 69:13 and the defense made it stick. Lexi Lewandowski saw 90 minutes in net making three saves in her first collegiate shutout. Adrian held a 4-3 edge in total shots in the second half and for the match had a 4-3 edge in shots on goal.
"We have a lot of respect for the DePauw program and what they've accomplished at the national level," said head coach Ali Alamdari. "To get a win on their field was certainly a plus, but regardless of outcome we were impressed with how the chemistry on the field is developing with so many new players in new positions. If I tried to name the players that stepped up and played well I think I'd find myself naming off the entire lineup."
The Bulldogs will next take the field in their home opener on Friday, Sept. 6 against Grove City at 3 p.m.
