Wesley Stays Hot at Frostburg State

Box Score

FROSTBURG, Md. - Wesley College won for the sixth time in seven games with a 4-1 win over Frostburg State on the road in non-conference action.

Playing with a goalkeeper who joined the team just two days earlier after starter Sarah Johnson was lost to injury, the Wolverines scored the first three goals of the game to take the pressure off newcomer Maura Druhan.

Druhan proved up to the task allowing just one goal while stopping eight Frostburg State (14-4) shots.

Senior Sam Marconi (Haddon Township, N.J./Haddon Township) scored the game-winner at 8:48 when Rachel Babchuk failed to control a shot by Brooke Bennett (Milton, Del./Cape Henlopen) as the Wolverines entered the half ahead 1-0. 

Wesley (11-6) scored its second goal off a penalty corner.  Amber Tank sent the ball to the Capital Athletic Conference's leading scorer, Brooke Tadlock (Middletown, Del./Middletown) who finished the play with her 17th goal of the season at 52:39.

Bennett got in on the action just under three minutes later with an assist from Ashley Kisner at 55:29.

The Bobcats' Sammy Stalter cut it to 3-1 with an assist from Sami Topolski in the 59th minute.

Freshman Sheree Pleasanton (Smyrna, Del./Smyrna) finished the scoring with an assist from Tadlock at 63:57.

Babchuck and Samantha Foland split time in goal for Frostburg State.  Babchuck played the first half before giving way to Foland at the start of the second half.

Wesley snapped the Bobcats' six game win streak and handed them just their second home loss of 2008.

It also gave the Wolverines 11 wins on the season, the 12th straight season they have won at least that many.

Wesley will now await the CAC Quarterfinals on November 1.  Sunday's first round playoff action will feature third-seeded Mary Washington hosting sixth-seeded York while fifth-seeded Wesley travels to fourth-seeded Stevenson.
