Women’s soccer overcomes halftime deficit, tops Webster
The No. 9 Washington University women’s soccer team scored four second half goals to stun Webster University in a come-from-behind 4-1 victory.
Webster scored off a rebound in the 42nd minute after junior Clara Jacques saved the first shot.
But in the 49th minute, senior Emma Brown jump-started the rally with the game-tying goal. Brown collected the ball on the left flank before cutting inside across the box and powering a shot to the far post and into the net.
In the 58th minute, sophomore Lauren Steimle scored for the fourth game in a row to make it 2-1, and Brown added her second of the game four minutes later.
Sophomore Jessica Johnson put the finishing touch on the victory with a goal in the 88th minute. Senior Mari Greenberg headed the ball over the defense, and Johnson volleyed it into the top right corner for a 4-1 lead.
Jacques recorded the 37th victory of her career, moving her to the top of the school’s all-time wins list.
The Bears (11-1) travel to Atlanta, Ga. for a University Athletic Association battle with No. 6 Emory University.
