Through the first five games, Wesleyan has outscored its opponents 3-1. On Tuesday, the Lady Bobcats shut down an IUP offense that had pounded the net for 11 goals through its first four games.
"Our defense played very well as a unit. We played hard all game and our fitness was a key factor in bending and not breaking," Holguin said. "Not one person stood out, it was a total team effort. We did play pretty well offensively, but no goals again."
Each team managed one shot on goal. Duncan's single save was matched by Indiana goalkeeper Mara Hricik. The Lady Red Hawks earned four corner kicks compared to one for the Lady Bobcats.
Wesleyan was called for 14 fouls compared to only seven for IUP (3-1-1).
Lady Bobcats (2-1-2) will entertain Pitt-Johnstown Saturday for a 1 p.m. West Virginia Conference contest.
