HARRISONBURG, Va., Aug. 12, 2012 -- The James Madison women's soccer team rallied from a 1-0 deficit to tie Virginia Commonwealth 1-1 in a preseason exhibition game Sunday night at University Park.
In the first event held on the game field at JMU's new athletic and recreation complex, JMU junior Lauren Wilson (Coatesville, Pa./Downingtown) netted the tying goal midway through the second of three 35-minute periods.
Dukes' senior Katie Menzie (Chantilly, Va./Chantilly) delivered a pass ahead to Wilson, who dribbled into the penalty box and slipped a 12-yard shot past VCU redshirt freshman goalkeeper Emma Kruse into the left corner of the goal.
VCU got on the scoreboard midway through the first period when senior Wendy Acosta received a pass from junior Brianne Moore (Halifax, Nova Scotia/Halifax West) and dribbled into the penalty box. She beat redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Kate Courter (Lincoln Park, N.J./Immaculate Heart) with a low sharply-angled shot from the left corner of the goal that fell inside the right post.
JMU out-shot VCU 11-8.
