Salem Soccer Wins Second in a Row
Winston-Salem, NC-The Salem College soccer team remained perfect through their first two games, with a 3-0 victory over Peace College in Raleigh. Salem improved their record to 2-0, while Peace dropped to 0-3. The game was delayed one hour due to Hurricane Hannah.
Salem was able to get on the scoreboard in the first 3 minutes, when Tatum Justice scored an unassisted goal. The Spirits scored again in the 10th minute when Brittany Thurlow fired a shot into the bottom right corner. Thurlow's goal was assisted by Tori Collier. The score remained 2-0 at halftime.
Michala Michaux finished the third goal of the game on a corner kick taken by Kim Wisen. Michaux's goal was scored in the 51st minute. Salem outshot Peace 32-15. Andrea Baldwin and Brittany Tedrick combined in goal for the shutout. Baldwin recorded 3 saves and Tedrick had 6 saves. Sherry Revels allowed all three goals against Peace, and recorded 15 saves.
"I was glad to see us get an early lead, so that we could rest some players who are injured," said Salem Head Coach Jay Callahan. "We have three tough matches over the next week that we need everybody healthy for."
Salem is on the road again on September 7 as they head to Shenandoah University in Virginia.
