JAMESTOWN, N.D. – The Dakota Wesleyan University women’s soccer team kicked off the 2012 season with a nonconference game against Jamestown College Sunday afternoon in Jamestown, N.D.
Jamestown scored early in the game, but the Tigers tied the score late in the game off a goal by Megan Johnson. She scored with just over 10 minutes left to play on an assist from Cassie Landgaard. Less than a minute later, however, the Jimmies scored again and held on for the win. Jolynn Warnes scored both goals for Jamestown.
Junior Erika Carpenter and senior Kari Durham split time in goal for Dakota Wesleyan (0-1). Carpenter played the first 45 minutes of the game and made four saves and Durham played the final half of the game and made two saves.
