Local sports: Wilson Phoenix fall to Warriors

Wilson College’s Phoenix fell to Lycoming College’s Warriors Sunday as the women’s soccer team continued non-conference play. The Warriors (6-1) shut out the Phoenix (1-4) by a final score of 7-0.

How It Happened

The Phoenix defense was under fire from the start of the match and continued to be throughout. Just three minutes into the contest, the Warriors connected on a goal by Bridgette Maaluom for the early 1-0 lead.
