CULLOWHEE, N.C. -Western Carolina women's soccer (7-8-1, 2-6 Southern Conference) was dropped by Wofford (7-3-4, 3-1-3 SoCon) 1-0 Sunday at the Catamount Athletic Complex on senior day.
For the fourth straight game Western Carolina held its opponent scoreless in the first half but it also failed to score the opening half as well. It is also the second straight game a team has scored in the second half, on WCU, to secure the win.
Western Carolina and Wofford were as even as two teams could be in the game, save the score. The Catamounts and Terriers each had 13 shots in the contest and each also had five corner kicks.
It was a Wofford corner kick, at the 64:43 mark, setting up the score for the Terriers. Maggie Bosley sent a corner kick into the box to Katherine Whisenhunt who found the back of the net.
The Terrier score amped up Western Carolina's pressure offensively. The Catamounts had some solid looks at the net but just could not score.
Redshirt junior Brittany Gendronhad the best shot of the game late in the second half. Gendron took a shot on the left side, about 10 yards out. The ball hit middle part of the cross bar and for a split second looked like it would go in. The ball dropped right in front of the goal and was just inches from going in but Wofford was able to clear the ball and the Catamount threat.
Western Carolina will play a rare non-conference game, late in the season, when it travels to Francis Marion on Friday October 25. The match is set for 7 p.m.
