GEORGE FOX 1, LEWIS & CLARK 0: Bruins Pick Up Homecoming Win over Pioneers
NEWBERG, Ore. – Scoring the only goal of the game on a well-executed play in the 70th minute, the George Fox University Bruins picked up a 1-0 Northwest Conference women’s soccer win over the visiting Lewis & Clark College Pioneers on Homecoming Day Saturday afternoon here at the Austin Sports Complex.
With both defenses yielding little in the way of close shots, the Bruins finally broke through at the 70:15 mark in the second half. Melanie Gaither, who leads the Bruins with six goals scored, beat her defender on a drive outside the left side of the box and angled a low cross to Lela Stockley, who had just entered the game and was coming to the inside of the box. Stockley quickly shot the ball past charging Pioneer keeper Elise Delgado inside the far post for her first goal of the season and the game-winner.
George Fox finished with an 11-8 edge in total shots and a 6-3 advantage in shots on goal. Alyssa Montero went the distance in goal and earned the shutout with three saves. Geena Fong played the first half in goal for Lewis & Clark and had four saves, while Delgado had one save for the Pios in the second half.
