Philly Women’s College Soccer Week in Review – October 7th Edition

Conference play kicked into high-gear over the week. 

The University of Pennsylvania was the only team that went undefeated.  They continued the Ivy League portion of their schedule with a solid home win over Cornell to even their Ancient Eight record.  Lawton Sizzy had a goal and an assist.  Bruekelen Woodard scored two goals giving her a team-high 5 this season.  Mia Shenk found the back of the net.  Penn erased a 2 – 1 second half deficit with the offensive outburst.

Saint Joseph’s and La Salle recorded a win and a loss.  The Hawks defeated the Explorers 1 – 0 in their head to head matchup.  Dakota Mills netted the game winner.  The Hawks bounced back after a one-nil overtime loss at Saint Louis.  La Salle was coming off a 1 – 0 win over VCU on a goal by Emily Banashefski, the first of her career.

Villanova and Drexel had a draw and a loss over the week.  The Dragons lost at Delaware, then traveled to Elon and earned a double overtime tie.  Drexel benefitted from an own goal in North Carolina.  It was the third straight one-goal loss for the Dragons in the Blue Hens game.  The Wildcats played Big East foes.  Nova lost to Georgetown at home, then went to Indiana and got a draw.  Butler got the tying goal in the 86th minute.

Temple was on the road losing at Tulsa and at #9 Memphis.  The opposition scored early on the Owls.  The Golden Hurricane goal came in the 17th minute.  The Tigers got a score in the first minute, then got the other in the 13th minute.  Calrissa Larisey had both goals for Memphis.  Temple goal keeper Morgan Basileo made 14 saves over the road trip.

Drexel, Saint Joseph’s, and Temple are at home in their next games.  Towson visits the Dragons, Duquesne comes to Hawk Hill, and SMU rides to North Broad Street.  Penn goes to Columbia, La Salle has a road contest at Saint Louis, and Villanova rides to North Jersey to face Seton Hall.

All games are league game for the Philly schools.
