Women’s soccer (9-3-1, 3-2-1 MAC) beat Eastern Michigan (2-9-2, 1-4-1 MAC), 2-1, on Thursday afternoon at Scicluna Field in Ypsilanti, MI. The Bulls then returned home to host Central Michigan (7-5, 4-2 MAC), losing 1-0 after allowing a goal in the final minute of the game Sunday afternoon at UB Stadium.

The first half against Eastern Michigan was a defense-heavy affair, with neither team scoring thanks to strong goalkeeping performances by Eagles senior Chelsea Abbotts and Bulls senior Emily Kelly.

Despite conceding a goal at the 48-minute mark, goals by junior midfielder Leah Wengender and senior forward Taylor Caridi secured UB’s third-straight victory.

Sunday’s matchup against Central Michigan was a heartbreaker for UB, as CMU sophomore forward Elizabeth Chlystun scored the game-winning goal in the final 53 seconds of play.

While the Bulls lost the game, UB outshot the Chippewas 23-8, with seven shots on target compared to CMU’s six.

Kelly made five saves while CMU goalkeeper Allison LaPoint made seven stops. 

The Bulls will host the Western Michigan Broncos (3-10, 1-5 MAC) at UB Stadium on Thursday at 7 p.m.
