Bobcats Get Late Game-Winner to Down Warren-Wilson, 1-0

BANNER ELK, N.C. - Tiffany Rodman beat her defender and ripped a shot over the keeper's head from 20-yards in the 87th minute to give the Lees-McRae Lady Bobcats a 1-0 non-conference win over Warren-Wilson College Tuesday night at Tate Field.


It was Rodman's, a sophomore from Corona, Calif., fourth goal of the season and second game-winning goal.

The Lady Bobcats dominated possession throughout the game, but could not find the net until Rodman's drought-ending goal.

Lees-McRae outshot Warren-Wilson 32-0.

Sophomore goalkeeper Brittany Bolton (Roanoke, Va.) recorded the win for Lees-McRae without facing a shot, while Rachel Schonberg took the loss for Warren-Wilson despite her ten saves.

With the win Lees-McRae improves to 8-2 overall, while Warren-Wilson falls to 2-3-2.

"Tonight we proved that if you keep fighting for 90 minutes you can be successful," said head coach Renee Lopez. "Tiffany Rodman's game-winning goal was an example of pure heart and determination not to lose."

The Bobcats host Pfeiffer University, Saturday, October 4th at 1 p.m., during Homecoming weekend, for their next match.
