Campbellsville, KY---The Asbury College women's soccer team will play for the NCCAA Title as they were crowned Mid-East Champions after defeating Campbellsville University 7-2 Tuesday afternoon. The National Tournament will take place in Kissimmee, Florida December 3-6.
Asbury (12-8-1) fell behind early giving up a goal in the 17th minute. The Eagles would rally for five straight goals, two coming from Bethany Russell. Russell scored the equalizer minutes after the Tigers' first goal when Jessica Young sent a cross from the left side that Russell headed into the net. Miranda Wiley added her first goal of the match after beating a defender after a pass from Carol Fogler. That would put the Eagles up for good.
