Wolves Soccer team takes down Young Harris College
Carrollton, GA - The 2011 UWG soccer season came to a close Monday afternoon, as the Wolves took down Young Harris College on the road, utilizing a late goal to win their seventh match of the season by a 1-0 count.
The match was the first in the series between the Wolves and Mountain Lions and looked for 80 minutes to be a deadlocked event, as neither team could find the back of the net. But in the 81st minute, West Georgia put together a run that broke up that tie.
Meg Sytsma started the run and delivered a smart pass to Kate Marnock on the right side, who then found Cydney Raymond. Raymond finished things off with a beautiful pass to junior Anna Cusick, who put the ball in just under the crossbar for the game-winner.
"The goal really was a great thing to watch the way we worked the ball down the field," said head coach Marisa Kovacs. "I'm proud of our bounce back after a tough weekend. We really showed a lot of resolve out there today against a good team."
The goal was Cusick's third of the season and the assist gave Raymond three on the year. Raymond finished the season with a team-high 19 points, the most for an individual at West Georgia since Erika Harvey had 24 points in the 2008 campaign.
Raymond closes out one of the best four-year careers in UWG history with eight goals and three assists in her senior year. She finishes with 20 career goals and 48 points, good for third all-time and she is tied with Harvey for eighth in assists with seven in her four years.
The Wolves finish the season with a 7-9-2 overall record after Monday's victory.
