RICHMOND, Va. — VCU’s Emma Kershner scored twice in the second half to lift the Rams past Davidson 2-0 in women’s soccer Tuesday night.

Playing their first of three straight road games, the Wildcats fall to 4-3-1 overall and 2-2 in the Atlantic 10.

“It’s disappointing to lose on the road, but we’ve got to be up for the next challenge on the road again with George Mason,” said coach Adam Denton. “We’re at the halfway point of the A-10 season, and we’re 2-2. So we need to build and move forward.”

Through the first cycle of the conference season, the Wildcats own wins over George Mason and Richmond and have also lost to George Washington. Davidson has outscored its A-10 foes 5-4.

Tuesday evening, VCU had a 7-3 advantage on shots, including 4-1 on shots on goal, and a 6-0 advantage on corner kicks. Gretchen Pearson, Rachel Schleicher and Sophia Caruso had shots, with Pearson’s shot in the 80th minute requiring a save by VCU’s Grace Young.  

The teams played a scoreless contest until Kershner struck in the 58th minute. She made it 2-0 15 minutes later.
