The Wildcats Women’s Soccer team put together an impressive win against William Penn University to even their conference record at 2-2. The Wildcats defeated the Statesmen 4-1 on Sunday after the game was postponed from Saturday due to weather.

Jenna Latimer led all scorers with two goals. Victoria Aceves-Power and Georgia Vernardakis provided the other two goals for the Wildcats.

The first goal from the Wildcats came just 19 minutes into the game with the second goal also coming in the first half for the Wildcats to take a 2-0 lead into halftime. The Statesmen scored their only goal of the game seven minutes into the second half. But the Wildcats answered quickly 11 minutes later with a goal of their own making it 3-1. Lattimer finished off the scoring making the final score 4-1 in favor of the Wildcats.

The Wildcats will look to build on this win as they travel to Grandview University to take on the Vikings on Oct. 3.
