TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology scored three first half goals to top crosstown rival St. Mary-of-the-Woods College 5-1 and win the second annual Grey Matters Awareness Game on Wednesday night.
The game is held to honor those among the 700,000 individuals in the United States battling brain cancer. A season-high fan turnout watched the Fightin' Engineers capture the win and raised nearly $500 for the fight against brain cancer.
St. Mary-of-the-Woods responded with a goal at the 77:23 mark, when Cami Navarra scored unassisted. Rose-Hulman's Natalie Aw wrapped up the scoring in the 87th minute on a pass from Bell.
Rose-Hulman improved to 6-4 on the season, while St. Mary-of-the-Woods dropped to 1-8. The Fightin' Engineers return to action on Saturday at home against Transylvania University.
