COLUMBIA, Ky. - Lindsey Wilson College senior keeper Carrie Revlett set the programs' career shutout record with her 21st showing without a goal allowed as the third ranked Blue Raiders edged 16th ranked Indiana Wesleyan University 1-0 Thursday at Walter S. Reuling Stadium.
The game remained in a scoreless tie for the first 62 minutes of play until Lindsey Wilson freshman forward Rebecca Bjorkvall found a loose ball in the box to score her first career goal for the game winner.
Bjorkvall was in the right place at the right time as the loose ball rolled in her direction inside the box after a teammate's pass was blocked. The freshman had time to set up the shot from the center of the box that she pushed past the Indiana Wesleyan keeper into the far right corner of the net.
Lindsey Wilson (2-2-0) furiously attacked the goal to no avail in the first period, taking seven shots that didn't slip by Wildcat freshman keeper Beth Anne Nowak.
Blue Raider junior defender Yolanda Hamilton came close in the 15th minute on a shot that clipped the crossbar and barely missed rolling into the goal. Nowak finished the first period with five saves.
Revlett's record-setting effort was aided by a strong Lindsey Wilson defense that didn't allow Indiana Wesleyan (0-1-0) to spend much time near its goal. The Wildcats ended the game without taking a shot, compared to the Blue Raiders who poured in 13 attempts, 10 of which were on goal.
Lindsey Wilson returns to action at 11 a.m. CT on Monday, Sept. 7 against Savannah (Ga.) College of Art and Design in Rome, Ga.
