Women's Soccer: WKU Slips Past Owls 1-0

FAU women’s soccer was on the wrong end of a 1-0 decision to Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers on Sunday afternoon at the FAU Soccer Stadium.

The Owls had picked up two victories at home in Sun Belt Conference play by 1-0 scores, including a victory on Friday over Middle Tennessee State University .

WKU broke a scoreless match in the 37th minute when Katrina Ott scored her first goal on the season after a corner kick from Lindsay Williams. Ott was able to finish within traffic in front of the 8-yard penalty box.

“We got off to a slow start but Western Kentucky to their credit was able to take advantage of some opportunities to get the lead,” said Brian Dooley, FAU’s women’s soccer head coach.

Despite being outshot 20-6 in the match the Owls were able to get some scoring opportunities. Freshman Alexandra Major paced the offensive attack with two shots. Sophomore Allison Griffin, Buerosse, Lewis and Russo each had one shot.

Redshirt freshman goalkeeper Courtney Zwetsch made a career-high nine saves in the match, and has allowed one goal in four home Sun Belt Conference matches.

FAU stands 3-3 in Sun Belt Conference play at the midway point of the league season. Overall the team stands 4-9 on the fall campaign. The Owls will travel out west to battle nationally-ranked University of Denver on Friday, October 15 at 7 p.m.
