WAVERLY, Iowa – Carleton College did not have a lot of dangerous scoring chances, but Bailey Ulbricht’s (So./Severna Park, Md./Severna Park) goal in the 64th minute stood up as the women’s soccer team won for the second consecutive day, this one a 1-0 victory at Wartburg College.
While Wartburg finished with an 7-2 edge in shots, only three of those attempts were on frame and Mikayla Coulombe (Fy./Crystal, Minn./Benilde-St. Margaret's) turned each aside in recording her first shutout.
After Carleton had gone nearly 54 minutes between shots, Ulbricht buried her attempt from the top of the box, slotting it into the lower left corner.
Looking for the equalizer, Wartburg put on immense pressure and had four corner kicks and three shots in the closing seven minutes of the contest.
"Wartburg was a strong squad and definitely had opportunities on the attack with a number of corners,” said head coach Jocelyn Keller. “We held them off and took advantage of our opportunity. Bailey really stepped up and created a lot for us on the day."
Carleton will open a six-match homestand on Wednesday, Sept. 5 when UW-Eau Claire visits Bell Field for a 4:30 p.m. affair.
