Behind an early Kalee Thompson goal, the Wright State women's soccer team picked up a key 1-0 Horizon League win Saturday afternoon at Green Bay.
The Thompson goal came at the 11:38 mark of the first half as the sophomore midiflelder got behind the defense and won a one-on-one with the Phoenix goalkeeper with a close shots. It was the third goal of the season for Thompson with the assist going to senior forward Emilie Fillion, her fourth of the year.
From there, the Raider defense took over in posting the shutout, their seventh of the season and fifth in the last seven contests. Senior goalkeeper Brooke McCurdy recorded her sixth complete shutout of 2013 and had three saves.
The win keeps WSU in second place in the Horizon League standings, a half-game back of leader Milwaukee with one match remaining.
Wright State (7-5-4, 4-1-1 Horizon) closes out the regular season on Friday, November 1, as the Raiders host Cleveland State at 7:00.
