Lady Owls Fall to Avila
KANSAS CITY - The William Woods University women's soccer team struck within the first two minutes of the match, but the early goal wasn't enough as the Owls fell 3-5 to Avila University.
The Owls got the scoring going early, as Brittainy German found Jamie Palermo in the middle of the penalty box. The sophomore slotted the ball home past the Avila goalkeeper.
Just under 10 minutes later, Avila equalized before adding a second in the 17th minute. Both goals came off the foot of Caryn Welch, with the first being assisted by Tracie Geile.
Unfortunately, the Owls couldn't hold on to the lead, as Welch completed a hat trick in the 57th minute and added a fourth goal in the 65th minute.
The Owls will have the weekend off, traveling to Canton, Mo., on Monday to take on Culver-Stockton College. Kickoff for that match is set for 3 p.m.
