Wilmington, Ohio – The Transylvania women's soccer team dropped a 2-0 decision to the Wilmington College Quakers at Williams Stadium on Wednesday night.

The loss drops Transylvania's record to 1-5-1 while the Quakers improve to 4-2-1 on the season.

Leading the way for Transylvania's offense was Brett Edwards, who tallied three shots in the midweek loss.

After a slow start to the match, the Quakers raced ahead late in the first half on a goal by Elizabeth Matthews from just inside the five-yard line.

Trailing 1-0, the Pioneers mounted a counterattack, peppering the Wilmington goalkeeper to the tune of seven shots on goal. However, the Quakers held steady as they continued to blank the Transylvania offense.

Then, in the 77th minute, the Quakers padded their lead with a close-range strike from Maddie Scott that pushed the final count to 2-0 in favor of Wilmington.

Picking up the loss in goal for Transylvania was Morgan Patton, who tallied two saves against two goals allowed on Wednesday.

The Pioneers will be back in action on Friday night, September 27 when they visit the in-state rival Berea College Mountaineers. First touch between the Mountaineers and the Pioneers is set for 7:00 p.m. at the Berea College Soccer Field.
