For Immediate Release
Grand Rapids, Mich. – The Indiana Tech women’s soccer team traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan on Saturday to take on Davenport University in a battle for the top spot in the WHAC. Both teams entered the contest with spotless records in conference play, but it would be the Panthers who came out on top, prevailing 2-1.
The Warriors surrendered two goals in the first 10:39 of the match, and that proved to be the difference.
The loss snapped Indiana Tech’s seven game win streak, moving their record to 12-3 overall and 4-1 in the league. Davenport improved to 12-2 and 5-0 in the WHAC.
The Panthers opened the scoring just over a minute into the game, as Abigail Westerweel knocked in a header off a corner kick. DU added to their advantage a little over ten minutes later when Letesha Cannonier stole the ball in the box and buried the ball into the corner of the net.
Davenport controlled much of the first half, outshooting Tech 10-4 and held a 5-1 edge in corner kicks, taking their 2-0 lead into the break.
The Warriors finally broke through in the 82nd minute, climbing back into the game with a goal from Natalie Zimmerman (Berkley, MI/Berkley). Zimmerman headed home a corner kick from Tori Singstock (Southgate, MI/Southgate Anderson) to cut the deficit to one, 2-1.
However, time was not on Tech’s side and would drop their first conference match of the season.
Junior keeper Jordan Roell (Guilford, IN/East Central) made four saves on the night. Zimmerman’s goal was her 10th of the season, moving her into a tie for second on the team.
Up next, the Warriors will return home on Saturday, Oct. 13 for Senior Day and will host Lawrence Tech at 12:30 p.m.
