FERRUM, Va. – Ferrum’s Alex Mattson broke a scoreless tie at the 56:56 mark of the second half and teammate Brady Hentz added an unassisted goal just over 17 minutes later to help the host Panthers edge Guilford 2-1 in ODAC women’s soccer action on Thursday, March 11th.
Guilford (0-3-0, 0-3-0 ODAC) netted its first goal of the season when Deanna Schlott found Taylor Rumrill and Rumrill responded by driving home a goal with a scramble in front of the net. That strike at the 75:54 mark sliced the Ferrum (1-1-1, 1-1-1 ODAC) lead in half, 2-1.
