(FINDLAY, Ohio) – Walsh won its fourth consecutive game and defeated the G-MAC's first place team with a 2-1 result over Findlay on Saturday. The Cavaliers (7-2-1, 6-1-1) moved into a tie for second place with the come-from-behind victory over the previously unbeaten Oilers (7-1-2, 6-1-2).
All of the goals in the game came early. Findlay's Ashley Rings opened the onslaught with a goal just 3:54 into the contest. The lead didn't last long as Brianna Sanborn scored her sixth goal of the season on an assist from Madalyn Canter in the 11th minute. At the time put her in the lead for most in the conference.
Hannah Bowman followed up soon after with the go-ahead goal on a helper from Ashley Dobbins at 18:02. From there the defense was able to lock-down the Oilers and limit them to just six shots the rest of the game. Only three of those were on target with Mickey McClanahan in goal to tally the saves.
Walsh did keep pressure on Findlay's end with 14 total shots in the game and held a slim 5-3 advantage in the corner kick department, but was unable to find the back of the net once again.
The Cavaliers will head south this week for a pair of games against Trevecca Nazarene and Kentucky Wesleyan. The Trojans are first up on the docket and will host the Maroon and Gold in Nashville on Thursday with a 7:30 p.m. start.
