TACOMA --- The George Fox women's soccer team took on the conference-best Loggers of Puget Sound on Sunday, losing a tough one on the road, 2-0.

Recap:

The Bruins created a pair of solid chances early as Madison Huesers and Savannah Sexton put shots on frame in the 5th and 8th minutes, respectively.

Despite the early offense, it was the Loggers who struck first, netting a goal in the 20th minute to take a 1-0 lead.

The Bruins had some solid chances around the 30-minute mark, taking three shots to keep pressure on the Puget Sound defense. They were unable to equalize as the half ran down, 1-0.

Huesers opened up the second half with another shot on frame, and Savannah Moisan followed suit just over a minute later.

But again, it was Puget Sound who found pay dirt, scoring in the 69th minute to widen the gap to 2-0.

The Bruins had a couple chances to chip into the deficit in the final ten minutes, but shots by Chloe Shumaker, Leanna Harris and Brittany Bravo were either saved or missed wide.

George Fox outshot Puget Sound 15-8 in the contest. The Logger keeper registered eight saves.

Top Performers:

Huesers applied consistent pressure throughout the contest, finishing with three shots, all on target. Abby Anderson contributed three shots and Shumaker added two more.

What It Means:

The Bruins move to 3-9-2 in conference play and 5-9-2 overall.
