Davis, Wiley Connection Gives Wooster 1-0 Win Against Lions

Krissy Blanchard attempts to score despite the pressure from the Mount Saint Joseph defense.

It took The College of Wooster women's soccer team a little longer to score against Mount St. Joseph University this year, but the Scots walked away with a 1-0 victory on Saturday. 

Last year, the teams tied 1-1 at John P. Papp Stadium, but in that one the Scots scored just 11 seconds into the contest to set the program mark for fastest goal to start a game.

In the team's home opener on Saturday, Wooster's 16th shot of the game finally produced a goal. It came off the foot of Claire Davis when Miura Wiley crossed a ball directly in front of the goal in the 71st minute.

It was Davis's first goal of the season, and Wiley's first assist. Davis took five shots in the game, including a pair of headers that both went wide.

The Scots ended up outshooting the Lions 19-11, but only four finished on goal. Wooster goalkeeper Molly Hutter made six saves to collect the win.

Mackenzie Goltz, Alexa Bencic and Kelsey Stone collectively led the backline to aid Hutter in the shutout.

Both teams committed seven fouls, and Wooster held the corner kick advantage 7-1.

Wooster moves to 2-0-1, and Mount St. Joseph drops to 0-2-1.

This was the first in a four-game homestand for the Scots. They welcome John Carroll University to Carl Dale Field on Thursday.
