CARROLLTON, Ga. – A ninth minute goal was all the scoring the UWG soccer team had in them on a windy day at University Field as the Wolves fell 2-1 to Christian Brothers in Gulf South Conference soccer action on Sunday afternoon.
Katie Mitchell sent in a corner that found the head of senior Katie Phillips, who headed it towards the net. The CBU keeper, Autumn Woods corralled the ball, but was already in the net when she did, giving the Wolves the early lead.
Christian Brothers answered with a pair of unanswered goals in the first half, as Lauren Magdefrau tied it up as Nikesha Mitchell assisted on the scoring play in the 14th minute.
