Visiting downstate rival Vassar College on Saturday, Oct. 20, the UR women’s soccer team played their hosts to a 1-1 tie, a strong result considering Vassar’s 9-6 record this season.

 
Vassar kicked off the scoring in the 20th minute when forward Chloe Wheeler knocked in her ninth goal of the season on a shot from the top of the box. The ’Jackets tied things back up in the 84th minute, when sophomore midfielder Ashley Hunt set up senior defender Kristina Diaz, whose clutch goal was also the first of her college career.

 
The ’Jackets’ ability to bend without breaking proved crucial in the end, as although they allowed Vassar to take 31 shots, only one got by senior goalkeeper Bridget Lang. Of her 10 total saves on the day, perhaps none were more important than the two that came during the second overtime period with the game on the line.

 
Coming up for the Yellowjackets are three University Athletic Association (UAA) Conference matches, all of which will take place at home in  Fauver Stadium. They will play Washington University in St. Louis on Friday, Oct. 26, followed by a match on Sunday, Oct. 28 against the University of Chicago. The ’Jackets will wrap up their season on Saturday, Nov. 3 against Case Western Reserve University.
