The Dayton Flyers women’s soccer team wrapped up their non-conference schedule on the road with their first loss of the season, 1-0 to Toledo Aug. 29, and a draw, 0-0 against Kentucky Sept. 2.

Against the Rockets, the Flyers gave up a goal from a corner kick in the 48th minute. Although the visiting Flyers out-shot Toledo 4-1 in the second half, they were unable to find an equalizer.

Against the Wildcats, the goal drought continued, as the Flyers fired 22 shots to 14 for the Wildcats, but were unable to find the net for the second straight match.

Going into their final non-conference stretch, with three home games against IUPUI (Sept. 5 at 1 p.m.), Ohio State (Sept. 9 at 7 p.m.) and Michigan State (Sept. 12 at 1 p.m.), the Flyers have gone 200 minutes without a goal. Their last goal, a penalty by senior wide back Lexy Kidd, sealed their 2-1 win over Northern Kentucky in the home opener.
