PEPPER PIKE, Ohio — Marygrove women’s soccer squared off against a red-hot NCAA Division II Ursuline College team Wednesday (Oct. 15) in Pepper Pike, Ohio, taking a break from the WHAC slate for one game. The host Arrows (11-3) struggled to score in the first half against the Mustangs (2-11-1, 1-3-1 WHAC), but eventually found their groove in the latter stanza to top the Green & Gold by a 6-0 final tally.

The Mustangs played a tough first half after allowing an early, eighth-minute goal to the Arrow. Defense would be the story the remainder of the opening half as the Mustangs held their own against the NCAA DII power to trail by one, 1-0, at the break.

Five second-half goals would help the Arrows avoid their second upset in the last three meetings against the Mustangs as the hosts went on to win by six. The loss drops the Mustangs all-time series record against Ursuline to 1-3 through four total meetings. The women’s soccer team pulled off the first – and only – win over a NCAA DII program by toppling the Arrows, 2-1, in Detroit on Sept. 22, 2012.

Cheyenne York (Taylor, Mich./Truman High School) led the Mustangs with six shots, two on goal, while Karina Cebrero (Detroit, Mich./Cristo Rey) added the only other Marygrove shot. The Mustangs were outshot 13-2 on target in the non-conference setback, largely due in part to missing pieces to their starting core as the team rests for a weekend battle with WHAC foe Cornerstone.

The Mustangs will visit the Golden Eagles Saturday (Oct. 18) as they look to keep their playoff hopes alive. Kick-off is slated for 4:30 p.m. in Grand Rapids.
