Crusaders start off 2011 with a "W"
Playing the first regular season game, of any sport, on the new turf of Bernlohr Stadium the Capital Women's Soccer program blanked Ohio Wesleyan by a score of 4-0 on Thursday afternoon and opened their account in 2011 with a 1-0-0 record.
It was a total team effort with the entire roster making an appearance on a hot afternoon in Columbus, but, for the Purple and White the heat was really coming from their offense. In the first half Natalie Fiorelli opened up the scoring with a great finish ten minutes into the match. Late in the half Bre Daly doubled the lead when she put away a great rebound effort off Kate Connell's shot off the post.
In the second half the offense continued to roll with Briana Walcutt picking up two goals in her first collegiate soccer game to put the final score at 4-0. For the game Capital out shot OWU 16-2 and the Crusader defense notched their first shut out of the year!
Next up will be a weekend duo of Denison, who made the NCAA Tournament last year and Kenyon, both on the road!
