Penn College Women's Soccer Opens with a Win

Valeria Passalacqua, of McAllisterville, scored the game winner as the Wildcats topped Baptist Bible College, 4-1, to go to 1-0.

Jamie Steer opened the scoring at the 29-minute mark with an unassisted goal. Passalacqua it 2-0 in the 32 nd minute with an assist by Kierstin Steer. Lady Wildcat Sarah Zeigler made it 3-0 at the 35-minute mark on an unassisted goal and the final Penn College goal came at the 55-minute mark on an own goal by deflection by Baptist Bible.

 "Winning feels good," said Penn College coach Markus Rybak.  "We had a slow start. Baptist Bible was pretty dominant during the first 15 minutes but then we got a lucky break on a free kick that Jamie scored on and that turned the game around. … Overall, I was very pleased."
