NEWBERG, Ore. – The visiting Whitworth women's soccer team held on to beat George Fox 1-0 after a first half goal by Gabriella Coprivnicar in Saturday afternoon's Northwest Conference match at the Austin Sports Complex.
Whitworth (4-11-1, 3-8-1 NWC) shut out George Fox (4-7-3, 2-7-2) in both matches this season. The Pirates won 3-0 in Spokane and 1-0 in Oregon.
The Bucs pulled out the win despite being outshot 21-10 on the match. Isabelle Arends and Kaycie Priske split time in goal for the Pirates, combining for 10 saves. Brooke Jones recorded three saves for the Bruins.
The Pirates' lone goal came in the 30th minute. Kendall Sharp found Coprivnicar who broke away from Bruins' defenders and sent her shot past Jones for her second goal of the season.
Brixiada Mendoza led the Bucs with three shots, two on goal. Madison Burch finished with six shots, four on goal for the Bruins.
Whitworth returns to Spokane next weekend for matches against Pacific (Ore.) and Linfield, the Pirates' last home matches of the season.
