BEXLEY -- For the third straight game, the Heidelberg University women's soccer team was blanked on the scoreboard, this time at the hands of Capital University. The Crusaders defeated the Student Princes 2-0 in Columbus on Wednesday evening.

With the loss, the Berg drops to 5-6-1 (0-2). Capital improves to 8-2 (2-0).

Capital held a superior advantage on the offensive side of the game, out-shooting Heidelberg 20-9 over the 90 minutes.

Alexandra Farmer started in goal for the Student Princes and collected seven saves on the evening. Erica Campbell led the Berg offense taking four shots, two of which drew saves from the Capital goalkeeper.

All of the scoring came in the second half as Maggie Peddicord found the back of the net on two occasions. Her first came from a shot at the top of the box to the upper left corner of the net in the 53rd minute. Just seven minutes later, she doubled her tally and the Crusader lead, finishing a cross by Hillary Counts.

Heidelberg hopes to get back to winning ways on Saturday at Hidden Valley Soccer Complex as Marietta College visits Tiffin for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
