WOMEN’S SOCCER FALLS TO NYIT, 2-1
OLD WESTBURY, NY -- The Wilmington University Lady Wildcats allowed two second half goals to the host Bears of the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), and fell 2-1 in non-conference women’s soccer action on Tuesday afternoon.
Wilmington struck first, as senior Angelica Appold knocked home a corner kick off the foot of freshman Victoria Vasapolli, right before the end of the first half. That would be the only offense the Wildcats could muster, as the Bears dominated play in the second stanza.
Sina Windmueller scored off a pass from Heather Kasper during the 67th minute to tie the game at one. Just four minutes later, Ally Halbig netted an unassisted goal to give NYIT a 2-1 lead that would hold until the final whistle.
Junior goalkeeper Amanda Walters recorded eight saves in the loss, while Kathryn Miller did not record a save in the victory. The Bears held a convincing 19-6 advantage in shots, including a 12-3 edge in the second half. The Wildcats had the edge in corner kicks, 6-2.
Following the game, Wilmington dropped to 2-3 on the season, while NYIT improved to 5-2 overall. The Wildcats are back in action on Thursday afternoon, when they travel to take on the Golden Lions of Dowling College in a non-conference tilt beginning at 4:00 PM.
