CENTRAL, S.C. – The Spring Hill College women's soccer team overcame an early 1-0 deficit to take a 2-1 conference win at Southern Wesleyan University on Saturday afternoon.

The Warriors (2-7-1, 0-4 SSAC) jumped on top in the 13th minute of play when Ashley Whiterspoon scored with an assist by Allison Johns.

Spring Hill rallied for an answering goal in the 38th minute as freshman forward Emily Thorpe from Shawnee Mission, Kan., slipped in a score off an assist by senior midfielder Elaine Femmer of St. Louis, Mo.

Senior forward Amber O'Connor of Ham Lake, Minn., provided the game-winner with just 5:38 left on the clock when freshman Tatiana Gonzalez of Ocean Springs, Miss., entered a corner kick into sophomore defender Molly Cowley of Jefferson City, Mo., who fed a pass to O'Oconnor who then promptly drove home the goal.

The Badgers attempted 17 shots with eight being on-goal and SWU took eight shots with just four being on goal.

Spring Hill (5-6, 2-3) will next host Brewton-Parker College (1-9, 0-4) in a conference match at 2 p.m. on Library Field.
