MURFREESBORO, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College women's soccer team fell on the road to Chowan by a score of 3-0 Saturday afternoon.

The Hawks closed out the scoring early in the second half with a goal from a tight angle that found the top corner.

Lees-McRae finished the match with six shots, three of which were on goal. The Bobcats offensive chances came from Tegan Dean, Ashley Herndon, Autumn Espositio, Cassandra Gregg, and Nicole Shapiro.
