WSU women top Oakland

FAIRBORN — Wright State women’s soccer won 2-0 over the Oakland Grizzlies, Oct. 7 at WSU’s Alumni Field.

For much of the half, the Raiders worked to penetrate the Oakland defense, who consistently moved the majority of the team back into the box to defend. Both teams finished with two shots for the half. The second half began much like the first half with the Raiders putting pressure on the Oakland defense. The Raiders pushed their lead to 2-0 on an over-the-head pass from freshman Destiny Johnson to allow junior forward Kayla Schrubb to run on to the ball in the box and hit a low liner to the right corner for a deflection off of the Grizzlies’ goalkeeper into the goal.

Wright State heads to Horizon League leader Indiana University Purdue University-Indianapolis for a 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13 match. This match will be streamed on ESPN3.
