Women’s soccer rallies late but falls to Mary Washington

DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College women's soccer team rallied late but were unable to complete the comeback against the Mary Washington Eagles, 3-2 in Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) action.

Facing a three-goal deficit late in the second half, the Wolverines wouldn't go down without a fight. In the 81st minute, Aleya Cummings would find Janiah Moore from the midfield. Moore would shield the defender from the ball and beat the Eagle goalkeeper on a 1-on-1 for the Wolverines' first goal.

In the 89th minute, Lynnae Swanson would find Moore at the top of the box and cranked a shot to the far-left post to cut the Eagle lead to one goal in the waning moments of the game.

The Wolverines turned up the attack in the late moments of the game but couldn't find the tying score.

Goalkeeper Krista Salvadore tallied 15 saves in net for the Wolverines.

The Wolverines will be back in action on Wednesday when they travel north to Pennsylvania to battle the York (Pa.) Spartans. Kickoff of the CAC matchup is set for 4:30 p.m.
