Stingy defense lifts BGSU women's soccer team to MAC title game

BOWLING GREEN — The stingy Bowling Green State University women's soccer team has employed a defense-first philosophy that has landed the Falcons in the Mid-American Conference title game.

For the third consecutive season, the BG women have earned a spot in the MAC tournament title game. The Falcons (5-1-0), who have registered five shutouts in their six matches this season, host Ball State (6-2-1) at 7 p.m. Saturday at Cochrane Stadium.

Bowling Green has outscored its opponents 15-2, including by a 10-0 margin in the past three games.

“We emphasize defense,” first-year coach Jimmy Walker said.
