Homestretch

SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Only four games remain in the 2012 Vixen Soccer regular playing season.  This week Sweet Briar hosts Bridgewater College on Wednesday and travels to Hollins University on Saturday.  Last week the Vixen side juggled its lineup and saw results, this week the team will look to capitalize on those successes.

 

Minutes into the game with league leading and nationally ranked Virginia Wesleyan College SBC generated a corner leading to a Marissa McCord (Asheville, N.C. / T.C. Roberson) header that put the Vixens on the board. 

 

Emily Spivey (Dillwyn, Va. / Buckingham County), striker turned defender, saw a lot of action in the final third against the Marlins.  Spivey adds speed to the Vixen back line. In their last outing with Randolph-Macon College, Katherine Tillson collected another shutout second half. Outside winger Ashley Federico (Milford, N.H. / Milford) also continues add support.  The first-year consistently turns in solid performances - dropping back on defense and pushing forward the attack.

 

Bridgewater enters the midweek contest coming off a double-overtime loss to Lynchburg College.  The Eagles will be eager to get back in the win column, but may be hampered by tired legs.  In that marathon match, Bridgewater was on the wrong end of four yellow cards and 18 fouls.

 

On Saturday SBC travels to Roanoke for an afternoon match with fellow women's college, Hollins.  Hollins sits two spots above SBC in league standings and both teams will fight for that all-important conference win down the stretch.
