DEFIANCE, Ohio – The Wilmington College women's soccer team fired 44 shots and surrendered just one in a 2-0 victory over Defiance College in the season-opener on Friday afternoon.
Wilmington kept up the pressure in the second half and eventually doubled its lead when Kaitlin Evans scored unassisted to put the game out of reach.
"Today's win was a good team effort," Head Coach Steve Spirk said. "Our passing and movement created scoring opportunities and maintained possession of the ball. Strong defense and goals by Taylor Leake and Kaitlin Evans completed the victory."
Leda Moyer earned the shutout victory saving the lone Yellow Jacket shot.
Wilmington (1-0) has a quick turnaround as it faces Westminster College (Pennsylvania) tomorrow (Saturday) at noon.
