The 2018 Guilford College women's soccer team recorded a 6-10 record and went 4-6 in Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) matches.

The Quakers began the year with heartbreaking one-goal losses to Greensboro, Brevard, and Meredith. Guilford, however, responded with three straight victories to even its record at 3-3. 

Guilford opened ODAC play with a 2-1 win over visiting Eastern Mennonite. Senior Juliana Evans-Anfom's penalty kick in the 85th minute secured the victory for Guilford.

On October 17, the Quakers snapped a four-match losing streak with a 2-1 home win over Emory & Henry. Katie Kaznowski, a sophomore, scored the game-winning goal in the 72nd minute in the win over the Wasps. 

Guilford recorded its final win of the season with a 9-0 triumph over ODAC rival Sweet Briar on October 24. Evans-Amfom scored two goals and tied the school standard with four assists in the contest. Freshman midfielder Karol Jaimes also scored twice as the Quakers after notching their most goals in a match since 2016.

The Quakers closed the year a strong performance against a good opponent in defeat: a 1-0 loss to visiting Randolph-Macon. Freshman Aubrey Gunther recorded a season-best 14 saves for Guilford in the setback. Six Quakers' student-athletes were recognized prior to kickoff on Senior Night. 

Evans-Amfom led the Guilford offense with 10 points on three goals and four assists. Reilly and Emily Shephard both contributed eight points. 

Gunther and Morgan Malinowski split time as the goalkeeper position. Gunther had a 2.20 goals against average and made 64 saves in 859 minutes. Malikowski, sophomore, posted a 3-1 record, had two shutouts and a 1.22 goals against average.

Coach Stephanie Webb will return as many as 20 student-athletes for the Quakers' 2019 season.
