WOOSTER, Ohio -- The College of Wooster women's soccer team suffered their first defeat of the season Tuesday in a 1-0 overtime loss to Case Western Reserve University.

Senior Emily Dickens scored her first goal of the year and took advantage of an open net to give the Spartans the win in the 96th minute. Freshman Ella Copich drew Wooster goalkeeper Molly Hutter out of the net and got a pass through to Dickens, who rolled it into the goal.

Hutter recorded one save in the game, and her record moves to 3-1-2.

The teams played evenly as Wooster held the advantage in shots 14-10 and corner kicks 7-5. Wooster had five shots on goal but all were saved by Case keeper Lauren Metz.

Devin Frisby led with three shots, while Mila Zunich, Kelsey Hall, Erica White and Claire Davis all took two.

The Scots did not get a shot off during the overtime period. One of Wooster's best chances to score came in the 33rd minute when Zunich's free kick hit the crossbar of the goal. Zunich had another chance in the 75th minute, but Metz was there for the save.

Wooster moves to 4-1-3 with the loss, while Case Western Reserve improves to 4-2. Wooster will start North Coast Athletic Conference play Saturday when they travel to DePauw University.
