NCAC Weekly Release (10-15-12) - Women's Soccer
Going into the final two weekends of NCAC play, Wittenberg (4-0-0, 8-3-2) and Wooster (4-0-0, 9-4-1) sit atop the conference standings with perfect 4-0 records. The Tigers and Fighting Scots square off this weekend as Wittenberg travels to Wooster, highlighting a week that features four league games on both Wednesday and Saturday.
Despite being uncharacteristically dominated for large portions of Saturday’s match at Kenyon, ALLEGHENY found a way to bag its third consecutive victory as the team continued an inspired push down the stretch run of the regular season.
DENISON suffered a pair of 2-0 setbacks to Kenyon and Mount Saint Mary last week. With four league games remaining, DU is just one point out of the fourth-and-final NCAC Tournament spot.
DEPAUW’S streak of minutes played not allowing a goal ended early in the second half at 326:49 in a loss to Wooster. In the same match, Tigers’ footballer Alyson Marzonie (Winnetka, IL/New Trier) found the back of the net for her first collegiate goal, putting DePauw up early against the Fighting Scots.
HIRAM dropped to 1-4 in NCAC play after two shutout losses last week. The Terriers fell 2-0 against Allegheny and 1-0 to Oberlin.
KENYON’S 2-0 victory at Denison was its first-ever in Granville and allowed the Ladies to snap a six-game losing streak to the Big Red. After the landmark win, Allegheny stunned Kenyon, 1-0, Saturday with the game-winning goal in the 98th minute.
In its first game of the week OBERLIN lost to Ohio Wesleyan, 4-0. The Yeowomen then went onto win their first game of the season against Hiram on Saturday, 1-0.
Senior midfielder Jessie Huschart (Columbus,OH/Hilliard Davidson) and freshman forward Claire Lofgren (Kirtland,OH/Kirtland) collected a goal and an assist apiece as OHIO WESLEYAN built a 3-0 halftime lead and went on to defeat Oberlin in NCAC action on Tuesday at Roy Rike Field. Wittenberg came up with a pair of second-half goals to hand Ohio Wesleyan an NCAC setback on Saturday in Springfield. Junior Hannah Zacharias (Marysville, OH/Marysville) finished with a season-high 12 saves for the Bishops.
WITTENBERG posted a perfect week and held onto a share of the conference lead with wins against Ohio Northern and Ohio Wesleyan. In a 1-0 win at ONU, freshman Kaylee Gialamas (Willoughby, OH/Hawken) knocked home the Tigers’ goal, and in a 2-0 win at home against the Bishops, it was junior Kayla Murphy (Dayton, Ohio/Stebbins) who scored the game winner, volleying in a corner kick from sophomore Tobie Weston (Worthington, OH/Worthington Christian).
WOOSTER improved to a perfect 4-0 in NCAC play after posting a 3-1 victory against DePauw. It was the first time the Fighting Scots have allowed a goal in conference play. Senior Erika Kay (Grosse Pointe Park, MI/Grosse Pointe South) scored a goal and assisted on another just 58 seconds apart during the second half to lift the Scots to the win.
