GREENWOOD – The Lander women's soccer team extended its unbeaten streak to open the 2018 season with a 3-1 victory over Newberry on Wednesday night at Van Taylor Stadium.
Taylor's goal in the 18th minute put the Bearcats ahead, as she took a cross from Jermstad and powered it into the upper-right corner for her second goal in as many matches.
Newberry answered just minutes into the second half on a goal from Daphne Heyaime, but Vidal scored on an assist from Taylor to give Lander a lead that it would not relinquish.
Jermstad put the finishing touches on the Bearcat win with a goal in the 71st minute.
Lander returns to action on Saturday night as the Bearcats travel to Wingate for a 7:00 p.m. kickoff.
