FINDLAY, Ohio – The effects of the injury bug continued to plague the Ohio Dominican women's soccer team Sunday afternoon as the Panthers dropped its second straight game, falling 3-1 to South Division foe Findlay at DeHaven Field.
The second loss of the weekend brings ODU's record to 2-5-1 overall and 2-3-1 in the conference, while the Oilers with their first win in four contests, improves to 3-4-1 overall and 3-2-1 in the GLIAC.
Eryn Weber gave Findlay the 1-0 advantage at the 11:59 mark of the first half as she put away a deflected ball of Panthers' keeper Laura Clark (Fr./Lapeer, MI).
ODU knotted the game at 1-1 off a set piece in the 35th minute as junior Jennifer Holton (Johnstown, OH) struck a perfect free kick to freshman Tonya Frasik (Lebanon, OH) who put it away for the first score of her young career.
The Panthers allowed just two shots in the first frame, but the Oilers began to come alive in the second with eight shots for the half, including the eventual game-winning strike from Brittany Guglielmi from 25 yards out to the upper right 90 in the 54th minute. An own goal by ODU at the 70:24 mark provided the final tally.
ODU returns home for the start of a four-game home swing this Friday, Sept. 30 as Ferris State (Mich.) comes south for a 4 p.m. start.
