Columbus, Ohio - The University of Findlay women's soccer team was the first Oilers team to play a Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) contest on Wednesday, September 6 at Ohio Dominican. Findlay fell in that match by a final of 1-0 dropping their record to 1-2 overall with an 0-1 mark in G-MAC play.
It took nearly 29 minutes of play for a team to get on the scoreboard. On the Panthers' fourth shot attempt of the match, Alli Pavlik scored to put Ohio Dominican up 1-0.
After that goal, the Oilers managed just two shots as they struggled to get past a tough Panthers' defense.
In total, the Panthers fired 19 shots to Findlay's six. Each team committed eight fouls while ODU had eight corner kicks to just three for the Oilers.
Junior Megan Kupetz led the team with two shots and had the Oilers' only shot on goal, an attempt to score that came in the 39th minute. Sophomore Chloe Marburger, sophomore Sierra Peacock, freshman Karleigh Clere, and freshman Samantha Church each recorded shot attempts in the loss.
Sophomore keeper Anna Money fought off nine shots on goal by the Panthers, one of which found the back of the net. Money made eight saves, matching her season-high.
Findlay is back on the pitch on Friday, September 8 when they travel to Northwood for a non-league matchup that is slated to begin at 4:30 pm.
