The Shippensburg University women’s soccer team traveled to Wilmington, Delaware Thursday afternoon defeating Goldey-Beacom College 1–0 for its fifth win of the season.
Senior Ashley Weaver scored the game’s lone goal and her first of the season in the 55th minute. The shot came off an assist from junior Bailey Bzdak, which Weaver placed in the right side of the net for the score.
Weaver’s goal would end up being all that was needed, thanks to an exceptional defensive effort by junior goalkeeper Kayla Kennedy. Shippensburg held its opponent to just two shots on goal in the game. One of those attempts came late in the game, forcing Kennedy to make a leaping save to hold the slim lead.
Kennedy’s quality start at goal keeper continues a special trend among the team’s victories this season. Each of Shippensburg’s five wins have been shutout performances. The team has now out-scored its opposition 14–5 in seven games.
After playing four games in a one-week span, the team will get some rest before hosting Kutztown University on Wednesday, Sept. 21.
The Raiders are now 5–2 (3–2 PSAC) this season with a three-game winning streak.
