NEWBERG, Ore. - The Lewis & Clark women's soccer team hit the road for its final road game of the 2012 season on Friday afternoon, falling to the George Fox Bruins 1-0. 

The Pioneers, who currently rank fourth in the Northwest Conferece, fall to 7-8-3 overall and 7-5-3 in the NWC. The Bruins improve to 3-14-2 on the season and 2-13 in conference. 

The game was fairly even with the Pioneers edging out the Bruins in shots 15 to 13, while both sides had eight shots on goal.
