Mary Baldwin Soccer Wins Home Opener

Mary Baldwin Soccer Wins Home Opener

The Mary Baldwin College soccer team opened their season this afternoon at home against Wilson College defeating the visitors 5-3.  Wilson struck first then added a second goal by Courtney Bernecker to take a 2-0 lead.  Freshman Caitlin Novak answered with her first of two goals of the afternoon to bring MBC back to within one goal at the half.  Senior April Pegg-Joplin then tied the game.  That seemed to give Mary Baldwin the confidence they needed to dominate the second half. Caitlin scored a second goal and assisted fellow freshman Kadijah Jones on one of her two goals. Senior Erica Gaughan remained in the goal the entire game finishing with 5 saves for the afternoon. The Fighting Squirrels also managed to 8 corner kicks to Wilson's 1 and 24 total shots to Wilson's 10. MBC will be back in action Monday afternoon at home  as they take on Randolph College at 4:00PM.
