Ohio Wesleyan Routed by Wooster in NCAC Action

Senior midfielder Hannah Mudge (Baltimore, Md./St. Paul's School) scored to give Ohio Wesleyan a 4-3 lead late in the first half, but Wooster scored the next four goals to take the lead and went on to defeat the Bishops in North Coast Athletic Conference action on Wednesday at Selby Field.

The Bishops and Fighting Scots traded goals four times to open the game, with Ohio Wesleyan taking the lead only to see Wooster respond each time.

Mudge's goal with 8:36 left in the first half broke a 3-3 tie and gave the Bishops their fourth lead of the game, but Wooster answered with a goal by Hillary Darragh exactly 2 minutes later, then Taryn Higgins converted a free-position shot to give the Fighting Scots a 5-4 lead with 6:00 left in the period.

Wooster added scores by Darragh and Madison Carey in the final 80 seconds of the half to take a 7-4 lead at the intermission. Carly Carey scored a pair of goals and Jill Lee added another as Wooster tallied 3 times in a stretch of just over two minutes to stretch its lead to 10-4.

Mudge found sophomore midfielder Marlowe Mavian (Columbus/Wellington) for a score that brought the Bishops within 10-5 with 22:21 left in regulation time, but Wooster pulled away to take the win.

Mudge and Mavian each scored two goals for Ohio Wesleyan. Freshman Liz Searfos (Powell/Olentangy Liberty) went the distance in the Ohio Wesleyan crease, making seven saves.

Carly Carey led the Fighting Scots with 6 goals, while Darragh and Madison Carey scored three goals apiece.
