Wolverines Fall to Seahawks

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Women's Soccer team was limited in their offensive chances while the St. Mary's College Seahawks capitalized on their opportunities to win 3-0 in Dover on Saturday night.

Sam Brannigan made 16saves but it wasn't enough to withstand the Seahawks' barrage. The visitors recorded more than 40 chances on the evening, constantly pressuring the Wolverine backs all night.

The Seahawks scored two goals in the first half, with tallies in the eighth minute and the 35th minute. St. Mary's pushed a ball up the right flank and found an open attacker who ripped a bad-angle shot for a goal near post. Later in the half, a Seahawks midfielder found the net with a shot from 25 yards out to make it 2-0.

Wesley produced nine chances on the evening, but only two found their way on goal. Both attempts came from defender Kayla Ryan as she moved up from the back to try to generate an offense, but it was for naught. The Seahawks added a third goal late in the game to seal the result as Wesley fell 3-0.

The Wolverines move to 4-8-1 on the season and will return to action on Oct. 19 when they play host to York College.
