- Frostburg State women’s soccer team drops its second straight difficult decision, this time to Allegheny College 1-0. Allegheny, ranked eighth in their region, came into the game with a dominating 7-2 record overall looking for it second straight victory over the Bobcats who fell to the Gators 3-1 last season.
Frostburg came out and felt the effects of an aggressive game against John Carroll the afternoon before as they could not match the aggression of Allegheny. They seemed to be out possessed in the mid-field, but a great weekend from freshman Jodie Gittleson (Wooten/Rockville, Md.), junior Stephanie Zych (Guilderland/Slingerlands, N.Y.) and the rest of the defensive unit kept the Bobcats in the game from beginning to end.
In the 25th minute the Bobcats could not defend a partially cleared ball that found its way to an Allegheny forward that drove the ball on a line into the upper netting of the goal. It was one of those goals that every forward dreams of, but only finds about three times in their careers. Unfortunately for the Bobcats she found of those three on Sunday.
Frostburg State tried to counter but had a tough time creating opportunities as they were out shot 9-3. Overall it was an impressive weekend for the Bobcats as they look at the level of competition they played, but in the standings they travel home a little worried about were their season may be headed.
At 4-3-3 overall, Frostburg State plans on making a run in the standings now that the level of competition in their schedule finds them more the favorites. Of course with three games coming up this weekend in four days it will be up to the conditioning of the team to see if it can begin a new win streak.
The Bobcats will begin the run of three games in four days when they host Villa Julie on Thursday October 3, 2002 at 4:30 p.m. at the Bobcat soccer complex.
