BLACK MOUNTAIN, N.C. – A pair of back-to-back goals in the second half lifted the local rival, Montreat College over the Warren Wilson College women's soccer team, 2-0, Tuesday night.
"I thought we played well. We had a lapse for a few minutes and they scored two quick goals. Overall, we are getting better each game building on our system of play," said head coach Lydia Jackson. "We just need to continue to work on creating more opportunities with numbers in our attacking half."
The first half was a battle between both teams with the Owls playing very defensive and organized. The Owls went into halftime 0-0. The second half was very similar to the first. The Cavaliers would get on the scoreboard in the 62nd and 63rd minute of play taking advantage of a stretched backline. A very physical match, the home team racked up 14 fouls as opposed to Owls three. The Cavaliers outshot the Owls 28(17)-6(6).
Goalkeeper Susie Lusardi racked up 15 saves on the night
Up next, the Owls hit the road to participate in a USCAA tournament at Johnson & Wales Charlotte against UC Clermont on Friday at 5 pm and Regent University at 5:15 pm Saturday.
