Oct. 14, 2005
Spartanburg, SC - The Citadel defense held Wofford to only three scores, protecting the net from 31 shots, as the Bulldogs fell 3-0 to the Terriers Thursday afternoon in Southern Conference action at Snyder Field. Senior forward Lauren Merchant paced the Bulldogs with two shots, including one shot on goal.
Preseason All-Southern Conference pick Mallory Bramlett began the game's scoring for Wofford (3-9-1, 2-2 SoCon) at 30:46 on an unassisted tally. Just under 10 minutes later, at 40:42, classmates Kelly Broderick and Whiteny Steelman connected. Broderick sent a corner kick into the box, which was headed to the back of the net past The Citadel defense for her first score of the season.
In the second half, shortly after the Terriers took another corner kick, junior Jessica Connett turned opposite the goal while standing on top of the 18-yard box and found Bramlett. Bramlett fired a rocket home from nearly 30 yards out to cap the scoring at 59:14.
Junior Bernie Sikes recorded her second career win and shutout, both in Southern Conference play, in goal for Wofford by making two saves.
Two players split time in goal for the Bulldogs (2-12, 0-6 SoCon). Brit Bunnell started the game and played the first 45 minutes making three saves. After halftime, Angie Ellenwood entered the cage and played the final session stopping five Terrier shots.
The Bulldogs continue on the road as they face Socon foe Western Carolina this Sunday, October 16 at 2pm.
