Women's Soccer Rallies Past La Roche to Advance to Fourth AMCC Final in Five Years
10/27/2001

ERIE, PA — Frostburg State rallied from a pair of one-goal deficits and scored the final three goals of the game en route to a 4-2 win over La Roche in the semifinals of the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Tournament Saturday afternoon at Family First Sports Park.

The Bobcats (16-4), the tournament's second seed, advance to the AMCC championship match for the fourth time in the last five years and will face top-seed and host Penn State Behrend (10-9-1) on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

The teams will meet for the title for the fourth time in the league's five-year history. The Lions, who shutout No. 4 Pitt-Bradford, 3-0, in Saturday's other semifinal, held off the Bobcats, 5-4, in last year's title match and have won all four conference championships.

Third-seeded La Roche took a 1-0 lead when Lisa Wagerer found the net in the 21st minute.

The Bobcats, playing without all-time leading scorer Amy Foote (Baltimore, Md./Patapsco), who received a red card in FSU's last match, answered just 1:03 later as freshman Alyse Reed (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill East) knocked in her fourth goal of the year, and the teams went into halftime tied at one.

The Redhawks (9-8) moved in front again in the game's 53rd minute when Wagerer fed Lindsay Talbot for a goal to give La Roche a 2-1 edge, but the Bobcats later struck twice in just under four minutes to take the lead for good.

FSU pulled even with 18:31 left in regulation when freshman Megan Spencer (Baltimore, Md./Loch Raven) scored her first career goal off a deflection, and junior Tiffany Parker (Pasadena, Md./Northeast) notched the game-winner on a breakaway with 14:56 to play.

Freshman Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./Northeast) gave the Bobcats some breathing room with 2:32 remaining when she scored her team-high 19th goal of the year.

Kotofski also has 45 points on the season, and she is just one goal and one point shy of Danielle Pickar's single-season school records set in 1996.

Sophomore Stephanie Zych (Slingerlands, N.Y./Guilderland) made six saves to improve to 16-4 on the season.
