BLUFFTON, Ohio - The Bluffton University women's soccer team honored Beth Snyder (Akron, NY) and Abby Karikas (Curtice/Genoa Area) as part of the Senior Day festivities on an unseasonably warm Saturday, Oct. 29, 2016. The Beavers finished off the season with an 0-14 mark (0-9 HCAC), while Transylvania improved to 4-11-2 overall and 4-5 in the Heartland Conference).

With players in unfamiliar positions due to circumstances which ravaged Bluffton's lineup, Transylvania secured the 11-0 shutout thanks to a 31-4 advantage in shots.
Skylar Liming (St. Marys/Memorial) fired two shots to lead the Beavers. Freshman keeper Courtney Davis (Richmond, MI/Richmond) fended off 20 shots for the home team. The Pioneers forced all 10 corner kicks in the match, but Bluffton was whistled for four more fouls (9-5) in the final match of Bluffton's season.
