Women Drop Tough Match Against Indiana Wesleyan
Marion, Ind. - Asbury's women could not complete a weekend sweep in Indiana, falling to #17 Indiana Wesleyan 2-1 on Saturday night. The Eagles gave up a goal just after halftime that shifted momentum, which Asbury couldn't recover from.
Asbury (3-4) had won three straight games after opening the season 0-3 but could not overcome back-to-back games against tough opponents. Rebecca Batey continued her excellent start to her freshmen season, scoring the lone goal for Asbury in the 88th minute that cut the lead to 2-1. Indiana Wesleyan's Brittany Smith had added her second goal of the game in the 86th minute that proved to be the difference.
Batey now has a team-high seven goals on the season, including two multi-goal games. Batey had one of the few chances for the Eagles on the night getting off three of the team's eight shots. Asbury was only able to put four shots on goal while IWU fired 21 shots and nine on goal.
The Eagles will continue their road trip this week, travelling to Campbellsville to battle the Tigers on Thursday September 17th at 4:00 pm. The Eagles will next be at home on Tuesday September 22nd at 7:00pm when they open KIAC play against Berea.
