GROVE CITY, Pa. -- The Grove City College women's soccer team set a new school record by winning its ninth consecutive match Friday as Grove City downed Presidents' Athletic Conference rival Thiel 4-1 at College Field.

Sophomore Stacey Brubaker (Houston, Pa./Chartiers-Houston) tallied Grove City's second goal 11 minutes later on an assist from senior Meg Tilley (Columbia, Md./Hammond).

Following a goal from Thiel's Katie Mound on a penalty kick that cut the lead in half, Grove City's Kate Klingensmith (Wexford, Pa./Pine-Richland) pushed Grove City's lead to 3-1 with an unassisted goal at 41:11 of the first half.

Novosel capped the match's scoring in the 53rd minute with her second goal of the afternoon. Junior Autumn Hubbard (Nampa, Idaho/Nampa Christian) supplied the assist.

In goal, sophomore Lindsay Thompson (Woodstown, N.J./Woodstown) played the first half, making two saves. Freshman Kori Koper (North Huntingdon, Pa./Norwin) played the second half for Grove City.
