Wartburg, Augustana tie in non-conference match

Wartburg’s women’s soccer team set a school record for ties in a season with their third last Saturday against Central. Why not another?

Alyssa Hewitt finished a cross from Brittany Frush in front of a wide-open net to tie the score at one in the 48th minute.

Neither team could find the net in the final 62 minutes of play.

Augustana, ranked No. 5 in the Central Region, held 17-12 and 9-6 shots and shots-on-goal advantages.

The Vikings (8-3-2) took the lead in the 34th minute when Wartburg (7-4-4) was whistled for a hand-ball in the box. Kelly Farell converted the penalty kick.

Beth Crow made seven saves for Wartburg, Margaret Williams five for Augustana.

Hewitt, recently named the IIAC Female Athlete of the Week, led the Knights with four shots.
