Bracken Nets Lone Goal as Devils Top Owls

BRYN MAWR, Pa. – Lauren Bracken headed home a corner kick in the 71st-minute and Sophia Kavulich made the only save she had to on the afternoon to give the Dickinson women's soccer team a 1-0 win over Bryn Mawr on Saturday afternoon in Centennial Conference play.

The Owls were on the front foot right out of the gates as Elizabeth Hummel sent a shot high just two minutes in. It would take until the 11th-minute for Dickinson to get their first chance with Meg Tate having her attempt blocked by the defense. Bryn Mawr had the following three shots, but none of them tested Kavulich. In the 19th-minute, the Devils got their best opportunity at a goal, however, Charlotte Glancey was turned away by Grecia Prieto. Prieto would watch Caleigh Fletcher miss right in the 39th before she had to deny Sophia Elguera four minutes before the half.

Tate tried to give DC the lead coming out of the break as she forced a save out of Prieto at the 56:42 mark, after missing wide left in the 46th. Dickinson continued to keep the pressure up with Sarah Cudmore and Tate each firing at goal but were unable to dent Prieto. The Red Devils finally got the breakthrough at the 70:57 mark as Lexie Greene played in a corner that deflected off the head of Glancey before coming to Bracken for the finish and the 1-0 edge. Macey Mento went in search of an insurance tally, but Prieto stopped her once before she pinged the crossbar with seven minutes left. Lily Schmitt and Cudmore would add chances as well, but could not cash in. Bryn Mawr still had a fighting chance late as Hummel worked herself free for a shot which Kavulich stopped to preserve the clean sheet.
