NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Johnson & Wales University women's soccer team tasted defeat for the first time in 2017 on Monday. The Wildcats dropped a 4-0 decision at Connecticut College.
JWU dropped to 3-1 overall while the Camels improved to 3-0. Connecticut College is coming off a second round appearance in the 2016 NCAA Tournament.
The Camels got their first goal at the 33:34 mark off a corner kick then Kat Norton scored 67 seconds later. Alex Baltazar added a third goal just 1:16 into the second half.
Keeping the Wildcats in the game was rookie goalkeeper Jenn Warnicke (Portage, Mich.) as she made nine saves - the most by a JWU keeper since Cat Nolan stopped 12 shots at Lasell on September 10, 2016.
