HUNTINGDON, Pa. – The Bryn Athyn College women's soccer team suffered a 3-0 non-conference setback to Juniata Friday night in Gibbel Stadium.
Juniata (1-1-1) came out attacking as the Eagles attempted the first five shots of the game, getting four on target. Bryn Athyn keeper Allie Warren stood tall in that opening 21:30 spell and stopped all four Eagle shots on goal to keep the match scoreless.
The Eagles' Talia Bertrando snapped the deadlock at 22:42 with a right-footed strike to the lower left side of the net from 14 yards away. Brooke Rotheram earned an assist by spinning away from two Lion defenders and feeding an open Bertrando at the 18.
Meadow Walshaw-Wert made it a 2-0 contest 4:18 after the halftime break as she one-timed a Rotheram pass from just outside the six-yard box. Rotheram put herself in the goal column by converting a penalty kick at 58:05 for the third goal. Warren went the right away on the penalty kick, diving to her left, but the shot was just out of her reach.
Warren ended the contest with 10 saves, while Juniata's Cait Besch stopped four Bryn Athyn shots.
Bryn Athyn (1-1-0) heads to Penn State Altoona for another non-conference match on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 4:30 p.m.
