Women’s soccer takes first loss of season

The women’s soccer team fell 2-1 to Worcester State University on Tuesday, their first loss of the season after two wins to open the year.

Worcester State scored first in the 41st minute, then added to their lead soon after halftime on an unassisted goal from Gaby Gonet.

Leslie A. Meyer ’13 cut the deficit in half for the Engineers, when she headed in a pass from Andrea Y. Park ’13 after a free kick in the 67th minute.
