Following a scoreless first half, the Colonels scored the only goal of the match at the 51:30 mark when Mary Taylor Kersey capitalized on a corner kick with Kelsey Boling earning the assist. Centre outshot the Yellow Jackets, 12-2, and won the battle of corner kicks, 9-1.
The Yellow Jackets are back in action on Tuesday, Sept. 13 when B-W hosts traditional rival Hiram College on the Tressel Field turf at The George Finnie Stadium at 7:00 p.m.
