Women's Soccer Slips Past Hilbert, 2-1, in AMCC Tournament Semifinals
11/01/2006

FROSTBURG, MD — Freshman Amanda Drake (Montgomery Village, Md./Watkins Mill) scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the 62nd minute to help Frostburg State slip past Hilbert, 2-1, in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Tournament semifinals, Wednesday evening.

The top seeded Bobcats (12-5) earned their 11th straight win and will host No. 2 seeded Penn State Behrend in the conference championship match on Saturday afternoon at Bobcat Stadium at 2:00 pm.

FSU and PSB will face one another in the championship for the fourth-straight year with the Bobcats winning the last three meetings. Frostburg State also enters the contest having won the league title in each of the five years.

The game went scoreless through the first half with Frostburg State holding a 9-2 lead in shots.

The Bobcats finally got on the board in the second period when Katie Emminger (Baltimore, Md./Perry Hall) scored with 58:19 showing on the clock.

FSU extended its lead to 2-0 just under four minutes later when Drake dribbled the ball down the middle of the field, made a move past a defender and hit the ball past the keeper for the score.

Hilbert (8-7-2) answered nine minutes later, when Tricia Knight narrowed the deficit to 2-1. The Hawks had three good chances to tie the game over the last 20 minutes, but were unable to connect keeping the score at 2-1.

Meanwhile, Frostburg State had its best chance of the half when freshman Christine Fitzgerald (Gaithersburg, Md./Gaithersburg) hit the post from the middle of the 18-yard box.

Bobcat keeper, freshman Stephanie Gwinn (Ijamsville, Md./Urbana), took the win improving to 12-1 on the season after making four saves. However, her 815 minute streak without allowing a goal came to end. Hawk goalie, Kelly Goodwin, suffered the loss making nine saves and allowing both FSU goals.
