Freshman Marjorie Boilesen scored the game’s only goal, coming off a free kick in the fourth minute, and the UWF defense held the Lady Flames to just three shots for the next 86 minutes. Emily Vogler scored her fifth goal of the season in the 1-0 win over Shorter on Friday, and UWF outshot the Lady Hawks 22-0.
