The Cedarville women’s soccer team lost their second consecutive game this afternoon, falling to G-MAC opponent Kentucky Wesleyan 2-1 at home.
Cedarville fell behind early, giving up a goal in the 11th minute off a deflected shot. The Panthers added another goal in the 19th minute when a forward beat Hanna Harris on a breakaway after a pass that split the Lady Jackets’ defense. Cedarville fought back, cutting the lead in half on a beautifully executed play when Kristie Wolff headed in a cross from Elise Hurley in the 29th minute. The Lady Jackets went into the half down 2-1.
Cedarville was aggressive in the second half, torching the Kentucky Wesleyan defense for 14 shots, and had several good opportunities to tie the game, but each one either narrowly missed or was stopped by the Panthers keeper.
Cedarville (3-3 (0-2 G-MAC)) goes on the road this week for a match at Findlay on Tuesday and a huge conference match against Ursuline on Saturday. The Lady Jackets return to the home field on October 2 at 7:00 for a G-MAC match against Ohio Valley. The Yellow Jackets men’s soccer team has a home match this Tuesday at 7:00 against Gannon.
