An Emilie Fillion goal just 2:17 into the match proved to be the difference as the women's soccer team held on for a 1-0 win at Nevada Sunday.
Fillion drilled a 40-yard shot over the head of the Wolf Pack goalkeeper to give WSU the quick 1-0 lead. The goal, which was the third of the season for the senior forward, was just one of two shots the Raiders attempted in the first half and one of four for the match overall.
The Wright State defense took over from there as senior goalkeeper Brooke McCurdy recorded her first shutout of the season and 16th of her career, tallying two saves.
Wright State (2-1-1) hosts Western Michigan in its home opener Thursday at 7:00 at Alumni Field.
