GREENSBORO, N.C.---Two first-half Emory & Henry College goals boosted the Wasps to a 3-2 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) soccer victory over Guilford College Wednesday night. The outcome secured an ODAC Tournament berth for the Wasps (6-10, 5-7 ODAC) and eliminated the Quakers (4-15, 3-9 ODAC) from contention for one of the eight postseason spots.

The Wasps got on the board first half in the ninth minute when Blair Vaughn sent a through-ball into the middle of the box, finding Erica Merriman. In the 37th minute, Bethany Myer collected a turnover in the Quakers' defensive midfield and fired a shot from the top of the box, doubling Emory & Henry's lead.

The Quakers quickly countered three minutes later when Sarah Levitt booted a shot after a throw-in, cutting the deficit in half.

Emory & Henry answered in the 53rd minute when Sarah Gorenflo flicked a cross to Ashlie Caldwell to put the Wasps up 3-1. In the 81st minute, Caroline Bishop found Levitt in the six-yard box to cut the Emory & Henry lead to one and increase Levitt's season goal total to five.

The Quakers held the advantage on shots, 20-17.  Miriam Davis-Rosenbaum made eight saves in net for the Quakers.  Sarah Jerome had nine stops for the Wasps.
