TERRE HAUTE, IND. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
withstood a second half charge from Webster University to claim a
2-1 women's soccer win on a rainy Wednesday night.
Senior Carolyn Guzik (Avon, Ohio/Padua
Franciscan) put the Engineers ahead with a penalty kick
goal in the 32nd minute, after drawing a foul in the box.
Freshman Becca Evans (Tinley Park, Ill./Victory
Andrew) contributed Rose-Hulman's second goal in the 58th
minute, courtesy of a crossing pass from junior Amy
Schleter (Knoxville, Tenn./Karns).
Webster answered just two minutes with a direct free kick goal
by Alexandria Nikolaus in the 60th minute to make the score
Webster charged in the last 30 minutes, but a strong Rose-Hulman
defensive effort and timely passing kept the Gorloks off the
board. The Fightin' Engineers outshot Webster 4-3 in the
second half, although Webster had an 11-8 edge for the match.
Senior Julie Brennan (Indianapolis/Pike) picked
up the victory in net with five saves for Rose-Hulman.
The Engineers improved to 3-2 on the season and travel to
Millikin University on Saturday.
#1 in the nation for 15 years!
