Hailey Braemer scored the only goal as the Davidson College women downed Fordham University, 1-0, in Atlantic 10 at Alumni Stadium in Davidson, N.C. on Thursday night.

The loss dropped Fordham to 4-9-1, 3-3-1, while Davidson improved to 11-2-3, 4-2-2.

After a scoreless first half, the lone goal came in the 51st minute, when Braemer sent the ball wide to Rachel Schleicher. Schleicher returned the favor with a cross into the box that Braemer one-timed inside the right post from 12 yards for her first goal of the season.

Chances were few and far between to find the equalizer for the Rams with the best chances coming off the foot of Julia Holton. Holton’s shot in the 82nd minute was grabbed by goalkeeper Mary Grace Bunch, while her effort in the 88th minute floated over the crossbar.

Bunch made four saves to record the shutout, while Maria O’Sullivan was credited with one save for the Rams.
