THE RUNDOWN:  

  • The Wheaton College women's soccer team traveled to Clark University Saturday afternoon for a New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) contest, which saw the Lyons earn a 2-1 overtime victory. 
  • Wheaton took the lead early, with Chloe Troy netting her team-leading eighth goal of the year. The goal came on a free-kick, which saw junior Hannah Lepordo flick the ball toward Troy who was able to put it away. 
  • The Lyons were in control of the scoreboard for the majority of the contest, until Maya Mashkuri knotted up the game in the 80th minute. 
  • With the game still tied after regulation, it took Wheaton less than five minutes to net the game-winner, this time with Kyla Magalhaes connecting with Troy. 
  • Despite the two sides finishing with 10 shots, the Cougars only managed four on goal, forcing Alexa Barbagallo to come up with just three saves. 

THE BASICS:

  • Shots: Wheaton 10 / Clark 10
  • Corner Kicks: Wheaton 5 / Clark 1
