CLEVELAND, OHIO – The Baldwin Wallace University women's soccer team was dropped a heartbreaker to cross-town rival Case Western Reserve University in a non-conference game by a final score of 1-0 on DiSanto Field.
With the loss, the Yellow Jackets (1-5-1) snapped a two-game winning streak against the Spartans (4-1-1), who remained undefeated in non-conference home games with a mark of 9-0-2. BW was the last team to beat Case Western Reserve in a non-conference home game back on September 19, 2012 when the Yellow Jackets posted a 4-2 victory.
BW and the Spartans played to a scoreless draw in the first half. Case Western Reserve controlled the offensive play as it recorded 12 shots to three just for the Yellow Jackets. Junior netminder Emily Tallmadge (Fairview, Pa.) was tested most of the half and came up with six saves, including two diving saves and one that she knocked over the crossbar.
Case Western Reserve got the game's lone goal when Jessie Sabers tipped the cross from Lauren Wichman past Tallmadge at the 75th minute mark.
Despite the loss, Tallmadge finished the match with 10 saves, including one from point blank range and another diving save in the second half.
BW is back in action on Wednesday, September 24 when the team hosts Waynesburg (Pa.) University in the first game of a women's and men's non-conference soccer doubleheader at 6 p.m. Fans can follow and watch all of the action live at http://tinyurl.com/q6faspc.
