Faith Stewart scored three goals to lift Wofford to a 4-1 victory over East Tennessee State Sept. 13 at Snyder Field in Spartanburg, SC, keeping the Lady Terriers undefeated on the season.
Stewart got Wofford on the board just eight minutes into the match on a header. Amanda Leyland had the ball on the left side of the box and played a pass to the far post to Amanda Berman. Berman one-touched the ball to Stewart on the left post and Stewart finished the play.
Less than seven minutes later, Stewart and Berman broke away from the East Tennessee State defense. Berman crossed the ball to Stewart who pounded a shot into the back of the net to give Wofford a 2-0 lead at the half.
East Tennessee State (2-3-0, 0-2-0) closed to within 2-1 when Melissa Wilder took control of a deflection off of Wofford keeper Katie Menegaz and put the ball into the goal in the 46th-minute.
However, Wofford recovered less than 10 minutes later as Berman headed the ball into the goal off a cross by Leyland to put the Lady Terriers ahead 3-1 in the 57th-minute.
Stewart finished the scoring when she gained control of the ball in front of the Buccaneer goal, juked two defenders, and slid a shot to the right of the keeper for her third goal in the 72nd-minute.
