25th-ranked Denison Scores Twice in Second Half For 2-1 Win

GRANVILLE, Ohio – The first test of 2010 was looking good for the Adrian College women’s soccer team as they headed into the final push at 25th-ranked Denison University on Wednesday. Denison had other ideas as they scored back-to-back goals at 69:24 and 71:48 to pull out a 2-1 win over the visiting Bulldogs.

Brittany Moreau put Adrian ahead at the 19:48 mark as she scored on a wide-open net after a cross from Sam Barker. The Bulldogs led by a goal at intermission as they were outshot 11-4 in the first half.
Denison kept putting the pressure on the Bulldogs to begin the second half and they eventually tied the game as Clare Meernik took a cross from Jenn Sloan and put it in the back of the net. It took just 2:24 later for Denison to take the lead as Libbie Randolph scored on a through-ball from Tory Danis and put the ball in the lower left for the game-winner.
Denison had a 10-4 edge in shots on goal. Jen Clemmer led Denison with three shots on goal. Anika Johnson had a few chances with three shots on goal in her debut for Adrian. Chayna Wallace got the start in net for Adrian and made eight saves.
