GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Bluffton Beaver women's soccer team traveled to Grand Rapids, Mich. to take on Davenport University which is ranked 10th in the country in the most recent NAIA poll. The Panthers improved to 6-1 as they defeated the Beavers, 5-0, on Saturday, Sept. 14, behind two goals from Letesha Cannonier. The Beavers dropped to 2-2 on the season following the defeat.

The scoring took off early in the second half for Davenport, however, as Cannonier was able to tack on two goals in the first seven minutes. Lizzie Paul added the Panthers' third score of the game after she picked up a loose ball in the box to make it 3-0 at the 56-minute mark of the game. The Panthers put it on ice with two more goals from Danielle Beery and Laken Duchar-Clark as the home team completed the 5-0 rout.
