Iowa Wesleyan women’s soccer team falls to Fontbonne

Oct 11, 2017

The Iowa Wesleyan women’s soccer team hosted Fontbonne University Sunday in a rescheduled game from Saturday. The Tigers were able to score a goal in the match, but it was not enough as Fontbonne would defeat the Tigers 9-1.

Iowa Wesleyan’s defense was pressured from the start. The Griffins scored two goals in the first six minutes of play and added two by the 11 minute mark. The Tigers would give up four more goals before the half was over.

Grace Alongi took two shots for the Tigers in the opening period. She gave Iowa Wesleyan their lone goal in the game. Fontbonne picked up a yellow card, and the Tigers earned a free kick. Alongi took the shot and it sailed over the hands of the Griffins goalie for the first goal for IW.

Fontbonne scored one goal in the second half to bring the score to 9-1. The Griffins would hold the Tiger offense without a shot in the half, and go on to secure the win.

Destiny Colon was in the net for the Tigers, and she faced 23 shots on goal for the day. Colon finished the match with 14 saves.

Iowa Wesleyan’s next game will be on Thursday, October 12. They will travel to Blackburn College for a 3 p.m. start.
