BRUINS UPSET BEARCATS 1-0

SALEM, OR — Julie Alexander scored in the 72nd minute as the George Fox Bruins upset the Willamette University women’s soccer team 1-0 in a Northwest Conference match Wednesday night at Sparks Field.

The Bruins are now 4-11-1, 2-10-1 NWC while the Bearcats lose their second straight game and fall to 10-6-1 overall, 8-4-1 NWC.

Playing in a steady drizzle, Alexander scored late in the second half when her shot from the top of the box slipped through the hands of Bearcat goalie Kari Woody for the game’s only score.

The Bearcats had numerous opportunities, out-shooting GFU 19-6 in the game. Bruin goalie Jessica Cardwell turned aside nine Bearcat shots on goal. Woody had three saves for Willamette.
