COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio Dominican women's soccer team captured a 1-0 victory Wednesday evening as they topped Ashland 1-0 in a non-conference match in Ashland, Ohio.

With their third shutout of the season, ODU improves to 5-4-2 on the year while the Eagles fall to 2-9-0 overall.

Scoring her fourth goal of the season, freshman Lauren Pratt (West Chester, Ohio) scored the game's only goal after she connected to the high right corner of the goal from freshman Summer Bourcier (Mansfield, Ohio) in the 38th minute of the first half.

The Panthers defense managed to keep the Eagles at bay, only allowing them one shot in the first half and just seven total for the game. ODU edged Ashland in shots 14-7 while the Eagles held a 5-4 advantage on shots on goal.

Both teams tied in corner kicks with two a piece and the Panthers committed just four fouls.

Sophomore goalie Laura Clark (Lapeer, Ohio) grabbed four saves in goal.

The Panthers will begin conference play again this weekend as they host Walsh on Friday, Oct. 5 at 7:00 p.m. and Malone on Sunday at 4:00 p.m.
