PORTLAND — Whitman College suffered through its fourth one-goal loss of the Northwest Conference women’s soccer season in a 1-0 setback to Lewis & Clark here Sunday afternoon.
In a game that featured relatively little offense, the Pioneers got the game winner in the 68th minute of the second half. Katie Browning used her head to redirect a crossing pass to the near post, where Gina Watkins was waiting to knock it home.
Both sides were credited with just seven shots. Whitman keeper Courtney Porter made three saves while her Lewis Clark counterpart, Elise Delgado, was forced to make just one.
Corina Gabbert with three shots and Amy Hasson with two generated the bulk of Whitman’s offense.
Lewis Clark upped its record to 2-5-1 in conference and 2-5-3 overall.
Whitman, now 3-7-1 on the season and 2-6 in the NWC, start the second half of the conference season on Wednesday with a game at Whitworth. The Missionaries then host Puget Sound and Pacific Lutheran on Saturday and Sunday. Both of those games start at noon.
