DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College women's soccer team fell at home on Saturday, 2-1 in overtime to the Widener Pride. 

Wesley would battle with Widener in the first half as they were scoreless at the halftime break. After drawing a red card on Widener in 52nd minute, Aleya Cummings would hit the crossbar on a free kick. A minute later, Cummings would get her redemption as she drilled another free kick around the wall and past the Widener keeper to get Wesley on the scoreboard. 

Wesley would hold off the Pride until the 82nd minute when Widener's Shea Scannell would tie the game up, scoring off a corner kick from Lexi Slusher to send the game into overtime.

With under two minutes left in the first overtime, Widener's Eva Reyes would sneak a goal past the Wolverines on a cross from Alyssa Dionisio to take the game away from the Wolverines.

Krista Salvadore made 13 saves in net for the Wolverines.

The Wolverines (2-2-1) are back in action Wednesday, Sept. 20 when they host the Washington Adventist Shock at home at 7 p.m.
