Griffons victorious over Harding

Featured Sports Review Soccer Sports

The Griffons began their season with consecutive victories, defeating Harding University 2-1.

Western once again brought the offensive attack.

With the use of 23 shots, 13 on goal, the Griffons found the net twice. Both goals were scored by midfielder Bridget Blessie, which already matches her previous season total.

However, it was a total team effort by Western, as nine other Griffons recorded a shot on goal.

Blessie was assisted by Layne Sheppard, who picked up her second assist of the season, and Cassidy Chappell, for her first assist of the season.

At the other end of the field, goalkeeper Sarah Lyle had a four-save performance, allowing only one goal.

The Griffons will take their 2-0 record to Minnesota, facing Bemidji State this Friday, Sept. 11, at 3 p.m. and Minnesota-Crookston Sunday, Sept. 13, at noon.
