Bishops Down Hollins on Think Pink Day, 4-2
Rocky Mount, N.C. - On Think Pink Day at Scalf Field, the North Carolina Wesleyan women's soccer team picked up a 4-2 non-conference victory over Hollins University. Four different Bishops tallied goals in the win, which leaves NCWC with a 5-6-1 overall record.
Wesleyan opened up a quick 2-0 lead with a pair of scores inside the first 15 minutes. Chelsea Laurens got things started with a 35-yard blast at the 9-minute mark, while Rebecca Staylor scored the second goal of the match just minutes later off a defender deflection in the box.
Hollins cut the Bishop lead in half with an unassisted goal by Becca Logan in the 17th minute, but Staylor countered at 25:25 by pushing the ball up the left side and delivering a perfect cross to Johanna Wallinder, who found the back of the net with the eventual gamewinner.
The two teams traded goals in the second half over a span of 36 seconds. Logan again did the damage for Hollins, and freshmen Sarah Olsowski scored the Bishops' goal after taking a feed from Nicole Liette.
Wesleyan returns to USA South play this weekend when the Bishops host Piedmont (noon) and LaGrange (1:00) on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Sunday's match versus LC will serve as Senior Day and Parent's Day.
