Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 12, 2019 – Sophomore Ariana Miles scored in the 79th minute to lift the No. 5-ranked Washington University in St. Louis women's soccer team to a 1-0 road win at Emory University Saturday in Atlanta.

Miles took a pass from junior Ellie DeConinck and got free for a breakaway to score her third game-winner of the season. 

WashU won its ninth-straight game to improve to 11-1-1 and 2-0 in the University Athletic Association (UAA), while Emory fell to 7-4 and 0-2 in the UAA.

Junior Emma Greenfield (11-1-1) picked up the shutout making three saves. The shutout for WashU was its eighth of the season.

Emory doubled WashU in shots in the opening half 6-3, but neither team could find the back of the net. Greenfield made two saves in the first half.

Emory outshot WashU 10-5 for the game, and the Bears had the 4-2 advantage in corner kicks.

WashU continues its three-game road swing at No. 18 New York University on Friday, Oct. 18, 5:30 p.m. (ET). The game will be played at Gaelic Park in Riverdale, N.Y.

BEAR NOTEBOOK: Emory leads the all-time series 16-10-5, but WashU has won the last five meetings … WashU is unbeaten in its last 24 true road games dating back to 2016 (23-0-1) … The goal for Miles was the ninth of her career … Head coach Jim Conlon is three wins shy of 300 for his career as a women's coach … The shutout for Greenfield was the 27th of her career, second most in school history.
