BRYN MAWR, Pa. – An early goal by the visiting Franklin and Marshall Diplomats proved to be all they needed to leave the Main Line with an 1-0 win over the Owls Saturday afternoon on Applebee Field.
F&M netted the game's only goal in 3rd minute as Spencer Plante lofted a shot over the hands of senior goalie Valentina Viertel to give the Diplomats the 1-0 lead.
Bryn Mawr didn't roll over in the game after falling behind early. The Yellow and White battled with the Diplomats the remainder of the first-half to make sure they were within striking distance.
In the second-half, the Owls stepped-up and started to put the heat on the Diplomats defense. However, on the cool and sunny afternoon, the F&M defenders were up to the task ad they kept the Owls out of the goal.
Both teams attack was pretty even but it was F&M holding a 9-6 lead in shots and 6-0 advantage in corner kicks.
The Owls are back to action then they travel to Dickinson on Saturday, Oct. 5. Game time is set for 1:00 pm.
