Battle Of The Wildcats Ends in Narrow Loss for JWU

Pineville, NC - JWU's Women's Soccer Team took on their fourth NCAA opponent in the last six games as they hosted the Randolph College WildCats. The close contest ended with a 1-2 defeat for Johnson & Wales.

Randolph College (5-3) opened the scoring early in the game when Sara Bane's cross found Alaina Gembach for the finish. JWU would answer with less than 10 minutes left in the half on a superb individual effort from Jaedan Smith. Smith dispossessed a Randolph player 10 yards in her own half and proceeded to dribble through three Randolph defenders before beating the keeper as well. The half ended with a score of 1-1.

JWU (3-5) defended with passion in the second half, and goalkeeper Kylie Priddy collected 5 of her 10 saves in the second period. The game appeared destined for overtime until Randolph's Sidney Keyes played a long ball into Bane's path for the game winning goal in the 87th minute.

The Wildcats of JWU next play on Oct. 8 as they travel to Trinity Washington University for a 3:15 pm kick-off.
