UMW Women's Soccer Falls to CNU, 3-0, in Wednesday CAC Tilt

The University of Mary Washington women's soccer team dropped a 3-0 decision to visiting Christopher Newport University on Wednesday at a cold, wet Battleground. The Eagles slip to 8-8 overall and 3-4 in Capital Athletic Conference play.

The Captains jumped in front, 1-0, at 17:28, as Bupe Okeowo scored on a Joy Piirto assist. The Eagles outshot the Captains, 8-6, in the first half, and held a 3-2 corner kick edge, but were unable to find the tying score.

In the second, CNU put the game away with two more goals from Okeowo, first at 48:27, and again at 67:06. The Captains outshot the Eagles, 14-3, in the second half to hold a 20-11 advantage for the game, and ended with four corner kicks to eight for UMW.

Freshman goalie Sara Armor made eight saves in goal for Mary Washington, who will host Frostburg State University on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. as part of Homecoming festivities.
