Women's Soccer Starts Season With 0-0 Tie At #18 Centre

Danville, Ky. - Inclement weather pushed back the start of the 2017 season for the Wittenberg women's soccer team. The Tigers opened their season on Saturday at #18 Centre College, holding on for a 0-0 tie after 120 minutes of action. It took two overtime periods for the teams to call it a day, as the sky remained cloud covered with spotty showers throughout the duration. Neither side was short of scoring opportunities, as the Tigers took nine shots, including five on target.


  • Leah Soutar managed to get two shots off for the Tigers, with both of them on net in the overtime stalemate.
  • Hannah Wilson stood tall for all 120 minutes, handling six of the Centre shots that came on target.
  • Wittenberg jumped out to a quick start, producing five shots in the first half, before being held to just one shot in extra time. 


"Every player had a role in tonight's game and the sense of togetherness was contagious on the sideline. Centre is a very good team and it's exciting to see our team step up and execute in big moments against a top team in Division III. It's a great first step in this journey but we are hungry for more and excited for what's to come," said Head Coach Katie Robinson


  • The Tigers take on Wilmington College from Edwards-Maurer Field in the home opener on Wednesday, as kickoff is set for 7:00PM.
