GAMBIER, Ohio – The women's soccer team dusted off a season opening loss yesterday with a 1-1 tie after 110 minutes of play on Saturday (Aug. 30) at Kenyon. The Ladies of Kenyon got on the board first at 13:50 of the opening half as Maggie Smith scored unassisted for her first of the season. Nearly six minutes later, senior Erin Weide found the back of the net also unassisted to tie the match. The teams would play 90 more minutes of tough soccer before settling for a draw as Adrian is now 0-1-1 through two matches of a five-match road trip to start the season.
"We had a strong bounce-back performance holding the reigning NCAC MVP scoreless," said head coach Ali Alamdari. "We generated a great deal of offensive chances and are backs were well organized throughout. We will be looking for our attack to continue improving as new players get integrated into our system. Grove City will be another great test for us in this difficult non-conference schedule."
Adrian had an 8-6 edge in shots on goal and were 22-17 in total shots. The Bulldogs put pressure in the overtime periods with a 6-4 edge in total shots. Sophomore Carlin O'Malley led the team with two shots on net. Lexi Lewandowski made five saves in net for the Bulldogs and her counterpart Alissa Poolpol made seven saves.
