HUNTINGDON, Pa. – The Juniata women's soccer team defeated Southern Vermont College in a 1-0 victory for the team's second win of the weekend.
What Happened: The Eagles held a 15-0 shot advantage in the first half alone but could not seem to find the back of net. Senior Carly Altenberg (Mount Laurel, NJ/Lenape) just narrowly missed a shot from outside the box before junior Wynter Adams (Houtzdale, Pa./Moshannon Valley) scored her first career goal off an assist from senior Aubrie Christensen (Suwanee, GA/Manheim Township) to put the team up 1-0 46 minutes into the game. The goal would be Juniata's only for the day.
The Mountaineers did not give up through the entirety of the game, putting forth a fast and furious push in the last 30 seconds of the second half. Juniata was able to hang onto their lead, securing the victory.
Juniata finished the game with a 27-0 advantage in shots.
Looking Ahead: The Eagles will travel to Hood on Wednesday, Sept. 6 before returning home on Saturday, Sept. 9 to face King's College at 5:00pm at Gibbel Stadium.
