Women’s Soccer Threatens in Late Loss to St. Bonaventure
DAVIDSON — Remi White’s second-half goal sparked a barrage of Davidson scoring chances, but the Wildcat women’s soccer team fell short 2-1 to St. Bonaventure Sunday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.
White’s goal came in the 80th minute, following a looping left-to-right cross by Hannah Casey. White finished in traffic amid a scramble for the ball, becoming the seventh Wildcat to score this season.
“We played really well for periods,” said Davidson coach Adam Denton. “But when you concede two goals in this league, it’s really tough to come back.”
Bona prevailed thanks to two goals by the A-10’s leading scorer, Cristina Torres. She struck in the 16th and 61st minutes.
A deep blast by Sophia Caruso in the 57th minute nearly got the Wildcats on the board, forcing Bona keeper Chiara Gottinger to dive to her right to save it.
After scoring, White also had scoring opportunities in the 83rd and 89th minutes. Alexandra Menard’s potential game-tying goal was high in the 87th.
Davidson returns to action Thursday, Oct. 14 when it hosts George Mason at 7 p.m.
