Baker, Woody lead Dogs over Furman
The Georgia soccer team earned its third consecutive shutout victory on Sunday, defeating Furman 2-0 a the UGA Soccer Stadium.
Madelin Baker scored both of the Bulldogs’ goals, and goalkeeper Caitlin Woody blanked Furman for her third shutout in as many games as Georgia improved to 3-1.
The victory moved fourth-year head coach Steve Holeman to 199 career victories through his 20 seasons.
Barker’s first goal came in the 21st minute when she took a pass up from defender Torri Allen and beat her player on the wing, firing the shot far post and into the bottom left corner to give Georgia the 1-0 lead. It was the first of the season for the senior, who entered Sunday’s game with an assist and nine shots on the season. Allen earned the assist on the score.
Barker added her second goal of the day to make it 2-0 in the 56th minute, stealing the ball and burying the strike into the top left corner.
Barker ended her career day — and first multiple-goal game — with eight shots to lead Georgia, while Madeline Crowder and Gabby Seiler had four apiece. Woody made three saves.
The Bulldogs host Jacksonville at 7 p.m. Friday and travel to play UNC-Greenville on Sunday.
