SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's soccer team picked up its 100th all-time victory with a 2-0 shutout of Pitt-Greensburg at Slippery Rock University Saturday afternoon.

Grove City maintained its 1-0 lead into the 79th minute when Tilley doubled the lead with her second goal of the match, a blast into the right corner. Senior midfielder Diane Metzger (North Huntingdon, Pa./Norwin) recorded the assist, her first of the season.

In goal, sophomore Lindsay Thompson (Woodstown, N.J./Woodstown) recorded her first career shutout and first win. Grove City out-shot Greensburg 21-5.
