LAKELAND, Fla. (Nov. 6, 2018)
– The Wildcat's historic 2018 season came to end on Tuesday as the Johnson & Wales (Fla.) women's soccer team (10-7-0) fell to the No. 1-ranked Southeastern Fire (17-1-1), 10-3, in the Sun Conference Semifinals.

Sophomore Savannah Jackson finished the night with two goals and an assist to mark her 11th multiple-goal game of the season. The native of Davenport, Florida, ended her second year at JWU with a school-record 62 points on a single-season record 28 goals with six assists.

After falling behind 2-0 following the first 45 minutes of action, the Wildcats netted two scores of their own. Junior Chelsea Green notched her third goal of the year in the 49th minute after receiving a pass from Jackson. JWU tied the match in the 54th minute when Jackson registered her first goal of the match. Senior Carissa Sanchez set up the score for her seventh assist this year.

The Fire put the game out of reach with seven-straight goals last in the second half.

Jackson added a score in the 89th minute thanks to a long punt by goalkeeper Kellie Fitzpatrick. The first-year Wildcat earned the first point of her collegiate career on Jackson's goal.

With the loss, JWU ends the season with a 10-7-0 record, marking the highest single-season win total in program history. The Wildcats also notched a program-best six Sun Conference victories and hosted the team's first TSC Tournament match, resulting in a 3-0 win over Warner.
