Georgia College Whips Wolves, 4-0
MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Scoring four first half goals, the Georgia College soccer team (4-3) dominated the University of West Georgia Wolves (2-6) 4-0 Saturday at Bobcat Field, marking the second-straight victory for the Bobcats.
The 'Cats scored the first goal of the contest just two minutes into the game when freshman Brittaney Borror (Evans, Ga.) dribbled past West Georgia goalie Mary Laza to have an open net.
After scoring her first goal of the season, Borror followed with her third assist of the year, finding Megan McAlpin (Newnan, Ga.), who hit a shot into the left corner of the net to give Georgia College a 2-0 advantage just 17 minutes into the half. Borror's three assists are a team best and the team record continues to 15-0-1 when McAlpin records a point in the past three seasons.
Junior Karen Bonilla (Manassas, Va.) recorded her first assist of the season, hitting sophomore Anna Wierzbicki (Newnan, Ga.) for a header that sailed into the right corner of the goal. Bonilla followed five minutes later with another assist to hit freshman Taylor Yee (Alpharetta, Ga.). Yee's shot rolled just under the diving body of Patricia Logsdon. Wierzbicki and Yee now have two goals each on the season.
Both Mary Rob Plunkett (Augusta, Ga.) and Taylor Mulryan (Cumming, Ga.) recorded two saves in the game. Plunkett has 28 saves, a 1.13 GAA and a .824 save percentage while Mulryan has eight saves, a 1.19 GAA and a .800 save percentage on the 2010 campaign.
Georgia College outshot the Wolves 28-17, including a 7-2 advantage on corner kicks.
