ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. - Bridgewater College put together its best offensive output of the early season Saturday to defeat North Carolina Wesleyan 2-0 in non-conference women's soccer action.
The Eagles created plenty of scoring opportunities with a 26-5 advantage in total shots and a 6-2 edge in corner kicks.
Bridgewater scored both of its goals in the first half to lead 2-0 at the break.
Sydney Ryan put the Eagles on top with an unassisted goal in the 24th minute. The goal was the third of the season for the Bridgewater senior.
The Eagles scored again, just before the break, in the 44th minute. Hanna Randolph connected with a pass to freshman Madison Crooks and Crooks found the back of the net for her first career goal, giving the Eagles a 2-0 advantage at the break.
Sydney Davis and Megan Byle combined for the shutout in goal. Davis finished with two saves while playing 82 minutes. Byle saw the first action of her career, playing the final eight minutes to finish off the shutout.
Bridgewater, now 3-3, is back in action next Saturday when the Eagles travel to play Salisbury University.
