FISSEL'S SECOND HALF GOAL LIFTS WILKES WOMEN'S SOCCER TO 1-0 WIN AT KING'S
 
WILKES-BARRE – Senior Katy Fissel (Madison, NJ/Madison) scored the game-winning goal early in the second half to lead visiting Wilkes University to a 1-0 win over cross-town rival King's College Saturday night.
 
Wilkes finishes the regular season with an 11-4-3 overall mark and ends Freedom play with a 5-1-1 record. King's sees its season end at 4-12-1 overall standing 1-6 in Freedom games.
 
With the win, Wilkes clinches the No. 2 seed in next week's Freedom Conference tournament. Wilkes and Eastern both finished with identical 5-1-1 records, but the Lady Colonels earned the tiebreaker with a tie against the top seed Misericordia. Eastern lost to the Cougars earlier in the year.
 
Just over 12 minutes into the second half, Fissel took a Brooke Edwards (Levittown, PA/Harry S. Truman)' cross from the right side and found the back left corner of the King's net to give Wilkes a 1-0 lead. It proved to be all the Lady Colonels needed as the Wilkes backline forced its school record tenth shutout in the process.
 
Goalkeeper Kate Mahoney (Kingston, NH/Central Catholic) made one save in net collecting her seventh shutout for Wilkes.
 
Wilkes will host No. 3 Eastern University Wednesday in the Freedom Conference semifinals at the Ralston Athletic Complex. Game time will be determined early next week.
