Wolverines Honor Seniors, Drop Conference Tilt

DOVER, Del. - The Wesley College Women's Soccer team honored their five-member senior class in a halftime celebration, but came out flat in the second half to fall 5-1 to Capital Athletic Conference foe York College on Wednesday evening.

Sam Brannigan made 14 saves but took the loss between the pipes. Amanda Deputy made an appearance in the final eight minutes, making one save for the Wolverines. Janiah Moore scored her sixth goal of the season, moving into a tie for eighth on Wesley's all-time goal scoring list and moving into the program's top 10 in career points. 

The Wolverines got off the snide first, scoring in the eighth minute of play. Summer Stone brought down a ball out of the air in the midfield and played it up to Janiah Moore. Moore put a brilliant turn on a defender, giving herself space on the right side, and fired a low shot that found side netting on the far post to make it 1-0.

York responded later in the period with a goal to level the score at 1-1 before the break. The Spartans netted three more quick goals in the first 11 minutes of the second half as Maxine Herman scored a hat trick in a span of 10:07 to put York ahead 4-1. The Spartans added a late insurance to push the final score to 5-1.

Wesley honored seniors Sam Brannigan, Kristen Griffith, Natalie Trujillo, Summer Stone, and Brooke Thompson in a halftime ceremony. The seniors combined for 23 victories including six conference wins and an ECAC Tournament appearance in 2014. 

Wesley moves to 4-9-1 on the year and will finish their season with road contests against Mary Washington on October 22 and Salisbury on October 26.
