UPLAND, Ind. – The Taylor women's soccer team defeated Georgetown 2-1 on Saturday, matching the program record for wins to begin a season with its fourth consecutive victory to open 2016.
TU (4-0) got off to a strong start in the contest, taking a 2-0 lead into halftime.
Bailey Zehr scored a goal for the second-straight game when she volleyed a pass from Shelbi Lowe into the net to open up the scoring for the Trojans. Lowe recorded a second assist when she set up Nikki Zaino for a header that Zaino sent home just outside the goalie's reach.
