EMORY, Va. - Bridgewater College set a new program record for consecutive wins with its 10th straight victory Saturday as the Eagles blanked Emory & Henry College, 2-0. The previous record of nine straight was set by the 2014 team.

Bridgewater held a 7-4 edge in shots and a 4-0 margin in corner kicks in the first half, but was unable to add to the lead as the opening 45 minutes ended with the Eagles on top 1-0.
The Eagles added an insurance goal early in the second half in the 60th minute. Rager was on the scoring end of this goal after taking a pass from Katherine Wight to make the score 2-0. The goal was the eighth this season for Rager and pushed her career scoring total past the 100-point mark, becoming just the second player in program history with 100 career points.
Bridgewater finished the contest with a 17-5 advantage in shots and a 6-0 edge in corner kicks.
