1-0 Triumph at Beloit Puts Lake Forest in MWC Tournament

The Forester women's soccer team won 1-0 at Beloit College on Sunday (October 25). Lake Forest is now 10-6-0 overall this season and 5-2-0 in Midwest Conference play. The loss dropped the Buccaneers to 7-8-0 overall and 3-4-0 in the league.

The Foresters scored the only goal of the game 17 minutes and 10 seconds into the game. Freshman Becky Esrock (St. Louis, Mo./Whitfield School) put a shot on goal that was saved by the Beloit goalie but senior Emily Sadler (Everett, Wash./Cascade Senior) was there to kick in the rebound.

Lake Forest out-shot the home team 8-2 in the first half and 10-5 in the second but was unable to score again.

Beloit was kept off the scoreboard by a Forester defense led by freshman goalkeeper Bri Schleibinger (Spring Grove, Ill./Richmond Burton), who finished the contest with five saves and her third shutout of the season.

The victory clinched a spot for the Foresters in the four-team MWC Tournament November 6-7. The event will be hosted by the winner of Saturday's (October 31) game between Carroll University and host St. Norbert College.

The Foresters will play a pair of MWC road games next weekend (October 31-November 1), taking on Illinois College on Saturday and Monmouth College on Sunday. Both contests will begin at noon.
