Pineville, NC – The JWU Women's Soccer team sought to avenge an early season road defeat against Washington Adventist University on Thursday night, but came up short in the end, 0-3.
#8 JWU had the best opportunity of the first half when Jaedan Smith found herself one vs one against the keeper, but a big save from WAU (8-8) keeper Laura Perez kept the game 0-0.
In the second half, JWU (5-7) started on the attack as a Lana Truese cross was claimed by the keeper. WAU's counter attack moved quickly into the Wildcats' defensive half and a long strike from the Shock's Jennifer Santos found the back side netting.
Santos would add another in the 67th minute before completing the natural hat trick in the 77th minute when she finished a corner kick at the top of the six yard box. It was Santos's 19th goal of the season for the Shock, who are ranked #7 in USCAA D1 Coach's Poll.
Kylie Priddy added six saves in goal for the Wildcats.
The Wildcats will play again on Oct. 20 at 12:00 pm against Piedmont International. The game will also serve as Senior Recognition Day as well as a Homecoming celebration.
