Women’s Soccer draws even with Immaculata on Senior Night

DOVER, Del. – The Wesley College women's soccer team honored their seniors as they drew to a 4-4 tie with the Immaculata Mighty Macs in their final home game of the regular season on Wednesday.

Mackenzie Forsythe scored all four goals for the Wolverines, which is the most goals scored in a single game since Aleya Cummings scored four goals in a game against Cairn on Sept. 3, 2016.

Just two minutes into the second half and down by one, Amanda Moccaldi played a through ball between the Immaculata defense to Forsythe just outside the six-yard box. Forsythe ripped a one-timer into the bottom right corner to tie the game at two.

After two unanswered Immaculata goals, Emily Caldarelli played a ball to Forsythe past the Mighty Macs defense in the 84th minute. Forsythe slipped the ball past the Immaculata goalkeeper to cut the lead to one.

Just over three minutes later, Moccaldi played Forsythe in over the Immaculata defense, and once again Forsythe slipped the ball into the bottom right corner to tie the game at four and force overtime.

The two teams battled back-and-forth in overtime. Wesley's best chance came when Jaimi Snyder ripped a shot just outside the 18-yard box but a diving save by Immaculata's keeper kept the tie intact.

Caldarelli, Moccaldi and Megan Shacklock all tallied assists in tonight's contest.

Defensively, Isabelle Fabris and Emily Magness split time in net and registered four saves a piece.

Taylor Bracy, Morgan McDonough and Miranda Rojas all scored for Immaculata.

The Wolverines (8-3-2, 3-1-1 Atlantic East) take a break from conference action as they head over to Chestertown, Md. to face the Washington Shorewomen. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.
