DAYTON, Ohio – Emilie Fillion's goal in the 40th minute of the match gave host Wright State University a 1-0 win over the Bowling Green State University women's soccer team in exhibition play Tuesday night (Aug. 13). The match, the first exhibition opener for both the Falcons and the Raiders, was held at WSU's Alumni Field.
The teams played three 30-minute periods in the scrimmage, and BG battled WSU through a scoreless first session. Just under 10 minutes into the second period, though, Fillion gave the home side the lead with what would prove to be the winning goal. Natalie Sedlock and Ashley Miltko drew assists on the play.
For the Falcons, junior Sidney Huth and redshirt freshman Courtney Hendrix combined for seven of the team's eight total shot attempts. The Raiders held advantages of 15-8 in total shots and 6-2 in shots on goal.
Huth had four shots, including both of BG's shots on target on the night, while Hendrix, who missed all of the 2012 season due to injury, fired three shots in Tuesday night's match.
The Falcons will return to Northwest Ohio to prepare for the second of three scheduled exhibitions. BG will hit the road this weekend for a Saturday (Aug. 17) match vs. Indiana State University. Then, the Brown and Orange will face Case Western Reserve University a week from Thursday night, Aug. 22, with kickoff set for 7:00 p.m. at Cochrane Field.
