ROCK ISLAND, IL - The Calvin women’s soccer team fell 2-1 to Washington University on Saturday evening on the campus in Rock Island, Ill on the campus of Augustana College.
Calvin drew first blood in the late stages of the first half, with an Emily Ottenhoff set piece finding the head of Carly Prins, a recipe that has garnered much success for the Knights in postseason play. But Wash U. equalized with immediacy, knotting the score at 1-1 just 37 seconds later.
The Bears charged down the field and Becca Heymann was able to drill a shot into the top-shelf and level the score at one. The teams entered half-time tied at one, each looking for the extra effort to put them over the top.
