Two second-half goals pushes women’s soccer over John Jay

DOVER, Del. – Two second-half goals and a solid defensive effort by the Wesley College women's soccer team gave the Wolverines a 2-0 shutout victory over the John Jay Bloodhounds on Monday to extend their season-opening winning streak to three games.

Wesley held an advantage in possession a majority of the first half and outshot John Jay 5-1 but couldn't find a way to break through and get a goal.

Janiah Moore broke the scoreless tie in the 54th minute when she got a pass at the top of the box from Lauren O'Sullivan on the wing. Moore made a move to make the defender fall and scored over the outstretched arms of the John Jay keeper.

Wesley added an insurance goal in the 86th minute when Mackenzie Forsythe bent a shot around the keeper off an assist from Emily Caldarelli.

The Wesley defense held strong the entire game, limiting John Jay to four shots and two shots on target. Emily Magness recorded her first collegiate win and shutout in goal for Wesley.

The Wolverines (3-0) will be back in action on Wednesday, hosting the Albright Lions at 7 p.m.
