LAKELAND, Fla. (November 12, 2019)
– Seven goals in the first proved to be too much to overcome as the Johnson & Wales (Fla.) women's soccer team (12-5-1) fell to the No. 4-ranked Southeastern Fire (9-1-0), 8-2, in the Sun Conference Semifinals on Tuesday night.

The Fire scored seven goals in the first half and added an eight in the 51st minute to take an 8-0 lead.

The native of Winter Haven, Florida, added her 46th goal of the season in the 72nd minute to cut into the SEU lead, 8-2.

Denise Mendoza (12-5-1) recorded nine saves in the loss to set the school's single-season record for saves (116).

JWU finishes the year 12-5-1 with a 6-3-1 mark in Sun Conference action.
