Air Force Downs DePaul, 1-0, to Remain Unbeaten at Home
Oct. 3, 2003
U.S.A.F.A., Colo.- An own goal was the difference maker as Air Force defeated DePaul, 1-0, in women's soccer action on Friday night, October 3, at Cadet Soccer Stadium. Falcon senior goalkeeper J.J. Wolf tied the school single-game record with 16 saves in helping Air Force remain unbeaten at home and 5-4-1 on the season.
DePaul drops to 8-3-0 on the season, snapping a four-game winning streak.
The lone goal came in the 55th minute when Blue Devil defender Erin Davren deflected a shot by AFA's Brittney Perkowski into her own net. Perkowski, who was credited with her first-collegiate goal, took a pass from Ashley Parker and sent the shot toward the DePaul goal, where Davren deflected the shot. The ball trickled into the goal before Davren and Blue Demon goalkeeper Lindsey Deason could get to it.
DePaul out-shot Air Force 22-14 for the game, but could not get a ball past Wolf, who tied the Falcon single-game record with 16 saves, also accomplished by Kristy Hulman vs. BYU, on October 23, 1999.
Deason had nine saves for the Blue Demons in the losing effort, with Erin Walter leading DePaul with four shots.
Perkowski led Air Force with six shots, four on goal.
The Falcons, who remain a perfect 4-0 at home, return to action at Cadet Soccer Stadium Sunday, Oct 5, hosting Montana at 1 p.m.
