Despite a home game cancellation due to Hurricane Florence, Women’s Soccer traveled to the College of William & Mary Sunday afternoon to battle it out in the rain with the Tribe.
The game started off with a foul called against William & Mary and a wide shot attempt by VCU sophomore forward CiCi Fox in the first five minutes. Sophomore midfielder Samantha Jerabek came right behind Fox, making another shot attempt, but it sailed over the goal.
The Rams took control early on. As VCU made shots on goal, William & Mary received one foul after another, subduing the Tribe’s momentum.
As the second half began the sides traded shots for the first 10 minutes until junior defender Susanna Friedrichs scored for the Rams with an assist by senior forward Kelly Graves.
After the goal, both teams took their time rotating out starting players and bringing in substitutions.
Outdoing the Tribe, the Rams made 22 shot attempts on goal compared to William & Mary’s five. The lack in shot attempts ultimately lost William & Mary the game as VCU headed back to Richmond with a win.
The Black and Gold stays on the road for their next game against St. Bonaventure University Sept. 20. The game will be televised on ESPN+ starting at 7 p.m.
