WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Sophomore Maddie McCormick tallied a goal and an assist to lead UNCW to a 2-1 victory over Towson in Colonial Athletic Association women’s soccer action Friday at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

The Seahawks improved to 6-7-0 overall and 1-2-0 in CAA play as they remained undefeated in four home contests this season. The Tigers, meanwhile, slipped to 6-6-1 and 1-2-0 with the one-goal setback.

McCormick put the Seahawks in front, 1-0, in the fifth minute as she knocked home a loose ball from the middle of the box for her fifth goal of the season.

Junior Katlyn Axenfeld would draw the Tigers level at 1-all at the 23:36 mark when she headed home a cross from senior Emily Banes.

UNCW regained its one-goal advantage just before the end of the first half as sophomore Katrina Guillou used a pass from McCormick to get behind the Tigers defense before playing a ball into the left-hand side of the net for her team-leading sixth goal of the season. Junior Stephanie Bronson was also credited with an assist on the play.

Freshman Carolyn Huddy got the start in goal for the Seahawks and made seven saves as she recorded her first career victory. Junior Erin Quinn made two saves in net for the Tigers.

Towson posted a 10-9 shot advantage in the contest, holding a 6-3 edge in the second half after UNCW enjoyed a 6-4 margin in the first half. The Seahawks attempted seven of the nine corner kicks awarded in the contest.

UNCW returns to action Oct. 11 as it hosts the College of Charleston in a 7 p.m. kickoff at the UNCW Soccer Stadium. Towson is back on the pitch Sunday in a 1 p.m. matchup with the Cougars.
