Kaitlin Ashley '11 Nets Second Goal of Her Career but It's Not Enough in 2-1 Middlebury Win

Kaitlin Ashley '11 (#4, photo courtesy of SteveMcLaughlinPhotography.com) scored an unassisted goal 10 minutes into the second half to forge a tie with NESCAC rival Middlebury during a game in Middletown Sat., Sept. 22. The Panthers picked up a loose ball in the midfield and converted it into the game-winner in the 73rd minute as Middlebury extended its unbeaten streak vs. Wesleyan to 13 games (11-0-2) since last losing to the Cardinals in 1994. The Cardinals traveled to Western Connecticut for a game Thurs., Sept. 27 most recently. WCSU scored on a header in the 10th minute and made it hold up for a 1-0 win. Gavi Elkind '09 and Andrea Giuliano '09 each picked up six saves during their half in the net. All five of Wesleyan defeats thus far in 2007 have come by just one goal, one of those in overtime. The team's next start will be Sat., Sept. 29 when the squad visits NESCAC rival Connecticut College.
