HARRISBURG, Pa. - The Wesley College Women's Soccer team could not manage to find the net as they fell 2-0 to Penn State Harrisburg in a Capital Athletic Conference match on Wednesday afternoon in central Pennsylvania.

Lexie Gausepohl made five saves for the Wolverines, but took the loss between the pipes. Wesley was outshot 22-7 with only four shots on goal. Aline Check, Janiah Moore, Sammy Williams and Katie Ford each recorded an on-frame attempt but none struck gold for the Wesley offense.

The Nittany Lions scored in the 13th minute, finishing off a ball that glanced off the Wesley goalkeeper to take a 1-0 lead. In the 37th minute, Wesley midfielder Aline Check put a shot on net but it was turned away as the Wolverines went into the break trailing by a goal.
