The University of Mary Washington women's soccer team used the strength of two second half goals in defeating Catholic University, 2-0, on Saturday at the Battleground. The Eagles improve to 3-0 on the season.
After a scoreless first half, UMW scored at 47:54 on a penalty kick from freshman Adrian Newcomb. The Eagles provided a last-minute goal for the third time in three games, today's coming as an insurance tally from freshman Jessica Bednarcik at 89:18.
"It was a tale of two halfs", said UMW head coach Corey Hewson. "In the second half we had much better possessions and capitalized on our opportunities."
The Eagles were outshot, 14-5, and Catholic led in corner kicks, 2-1. UMW sophomore Charlotte Owens made seven saves for the Eagles, while Lexi Halpern had two stops for CUA.
The Eagles will face Guilford College on Sunday at 3:00 p.m.
