VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Virginia Wesleyan University women's soccer team drew, 1-1, against Salisbury University on Wednesday evening at the Trinder Center. With the result, the Marlins move to 2-1-2 on the year while the Sea Gulls go to 2-2-1.
It was a tale of two halves with Salisbury controlling much of the opening stanza. The Sea Gulls notched nine shots compared to VWU's three and scored the only goal of the first. The Marlins collected themselves at halftime though and changed the tides in the second. Virginia Wesleyan accrued 11 shots in the second none more crucial than a shot by Camryn Terry at the 26:46 mark. Carleigh Van Reenen got the play going as she forced a handball at the edge of the 18-yard box. Terry then set to take the kick, curling a beautifully placed ball to the far post that beat the kicker and knotted the game at 1-1. The game would continue on to a pair of overtime periods, but neither team was able to find the back of the net.
Freshman Amruta Karkare got her first start in goal as a Marlin, stopping seven Sea Gull shots on the evening.
Women's soccer returns to action once again at 7 p.m. on Saturday as the team welcomes Mary Washington University to the Trinder Center.
