Wolves Shutout Lady Canes

COLUMBUS, Ga. - The Georgia Southwestern women's soccer team lost 5-0 to the University of West Georgia on Friday afternoon in the first game of the Peach Belt vs. Gulf South Invitational hosted by Columbus State.

UWG took the lead early when Melanie Kilburn knocked in a shot by teammate Samantha Jones that deflected off the post just shy of four minutes into the match. 
 
In the 14th minute the Wolves (4-2-1) scored again when Angie Jolley knocked in her third goal of the season.
 
Ericka Harvey drove a loose ball between the pipes from the front of the box at the 22:20 mark to give UWG a three goal lead.

Cydney Raymond added a goal before the half for the Wolves off an assist from Harvey.

The same duo teamed for the final goal of the match in the 67th minute.

Christy Drabek tallied eight saves for GSW. West Georgia starting goalkeeper Jenny Ross stopped two in 45 minutes of work.  Patricia Logsdon had three saves in her 45 minutes for UWG.  The Wolves outshot GSW 25-7 and led 6-2 in corner kicks.

The Lady Canes (2-5) are back in action on Sunday when they return to Columbus to face Alabama-Huntsville at 3 p.m. in their final game of the Peach Belt vs. Gulf South Invitational.
