Women's Soccer Drop Tough Decision to Regionally Ranked Carnegie Mellon

FROSTBURG, MD — The Frostburg State University women's soccer team opened its home schedule with a 2-0 loss to regionally ranked Carnegie Mellon on Saturday afternoon. CMU scored both goals in a spree of activity less than three minutes apart midway through the second half.

The Bobcats held strong in the first half, playing to a 0-0 tie as both teams had very few scoring chances. FSU's best chance came 14 minutes into the game as sophomore Teri Galt (Good Counsel/Silver Spring, Md.) flicked a rebounded shot over the defense to junior Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./Northeast), who found herself alone. Kotofski beat Tartan goalkeeper Betsy Ricker to the ball, however Ricker was able to get a hand on the shot and deflect it over the goal.

In the second half the Bobcats came out strong earning a few scoring chances and out possesing the Tartens until CMU was able to get a run 16 minutes into the game. Carnegie Mellon was able to find a bouncing ball in the box and a big defensive save by junior Aimee Sprauge (Yarmouth/Yarmouth, Mass.) kept the game scoreless. But on the ensuing corner kick Lisa Pascoli was able to get the ball on net as it deflected off Bobcat goalkeeper senior Stephanie Zych (Guilderland/Slingerlands, N.Y.) for the first goal of the game and what proved to be the game-winner.

Less than three minutes later the Tartens found themselves in possession of the ball and a few short passes allowed Hallie Dumont to be open and she drilled the ball into a open net for the insurance goal.

The loss drops the Bobcats to 3-2 on the season, but they look to rebound sunday afternoon as they host regional ranked Allegheny College at 1:00 p.m. at Frostburg State Soccer complex.
