Women’s Soccer Pushes Past Rose-Hulman 2-1

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – The Panthers used an inspired second half rally to battle back on the road in Terre Haute on Tuesday and down the Engineers of Rose-Hulman 2-1.

Senior Rachel Irwin and sophomore Maureen Murphy helped carry the visiting Black & Orange, each posting one goal on one shot with an assist in the 2-1 victory.

Despite an “own goal” scare in the 22nd minute of play that served GC a 1-0 deficit, the women showed their resolve after intermission and netted chances at 49:35 and 80:50. The second half equalizer came on an assist from Irwin and freshman Kayla Panzau and was buried by Murphy. The game winner in the 80th minute came on a strike from Irwin on a well-timed ball by Murphy.

Defensively senior Emily Rose earned the win, notching five saves and allowing no goals in her 44:45 minutes of play.

Collectively, GC outshot Rose-Hulman in shots (15-13) and corners (5-2).

With the win women’s soccer advances to 5-4 (1-0 SLIAC) and will resume play on Saturday, October 1 as they welcome conference foe Spalding University to Francis Field for a 2:00 pm tilt.
