The Shepherd University women’s soccer team had a four game winning streak snapped when they fell to Wheeling Jesuit University by the score of 1-0 on Oct. 15.
The game remained scoreless until the 88th minute when Megan Horan scored the only goal of the game on a free kick. Despite giving up the late goal, sophomore goalkeeper Anna Muller had a stellar performance as she made five saves in the contest. Furthermore, Shepherd had a 17-9 advantage in shots and a 5-2 edge in corner kicks but it would not be enough for the win.
The Lady Rams were looking to rebound and get back to their winning ways when they hosted Notre Dame College on Oct. 18. The game was very similar to their contest with Wheeling Jesuit a few days prior as both teams were unable to find the back of the net throughout all of regulation time.
As a result, the two teams had to play an overtime session and in the 105th minute Katherine Beattie scored the game-winning goal on an assist from Alexis Manoa to lift the Lady Falcons to the 1-0 win. Anna Muller had another impressive performance in net for the Lady Rams as she made four saves. Despite the loss, Shepherd managed a 15-9 advantage in shots in the contest.
With the loss, Shepherd’s recorded dropped to 7-7-1 on the season. The team now sits fourth out of eight teams in the Mountain East Conference women’s soccer standings. The Lady Rams travel to West Virginia Wesleyan College on Oct. 21 and the team will host Urbana University on Saturday, Oct. 25.
