FERRUM, Va. - The Virginia Wesleyan University women's soccer team defeated Ferrum, 3-1, Saturday evening on the road. With the victory, the Marlins improve to 9-3-3 on the season and 5-2-1- in conference play. Ferrum slid to 8-6-2 (4-3-1 ODAC).

Terry then finished one herself at the 33:10 mark and the Marlins took a 2-0 lead into the half. The team then extended that lead to 3-0 just three minutes into the second stanza as Meinhardt notched her second of the day off a Reina Araujo pass. Ferrum attempted a comeback as they nixed the shutout in the 66th minute but the Marlin defense suppressed any more chances.
