SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (October 2, 2019) – The Western New England University women's soccer team registered a 4-1, non-conference victory over Dean College on Wednesday afternoon at Suprenant Field.
Sophomore Allison Bruehwiler (Old Saybrook, Conn.) powered the Western New England offense with a pair of goals, while junior Christina Sordi (Bethlehem, Pa.) and freshman Allyson Hill (Storrs, Conn.) also found the back of the net.
Dean freshman Jasmine Sztyler-Magee (Burlington, Conn.) tallied the lone goal for the visitors.
Western New England opened the scoring just under four minutes into the game, when junior Kristin Decost (Hudson, N.H.) sent a cross into the box and Sordi redirected the service past Dean senior goalkeeper Macy Parisee (East Freetown, Mass.).
At the 8:51 mark, the Golden Bears doubled their advantage as Sordi intercepted a pass from Parisee and found Bruehwiler wide open in front of the goal, where she one-timed a shot inside the near post.
The Bulldogs cut their deficit in half in the 29th minute, as Sztyler-Magee got behind the Golden Bear defense on a breakaway, dribbled around charging WNE goalkeeper Alex Lemekha (Stamford, Conn.), and buried a shot into the back of the net.
Hill tallied her second goal of the season on a shot from well outside the box in the 40th minute, before Bruehwiler capped the scoring on a feed from junior Mariana Goncalves (Ludlow, Mass.) early in the second half.
• Western New England outshot Dean 59-4 in the contest, with a 20-0 advantage in corner kicks.
• Bruehwiler now leads the Golden Bears with 10 points (3 goals, 4 assists) this season.
