Women's Soccer Opens Season With 1-0 Overtime Win Over Hartwick

Gwynedd Valley, Pa. ... Junior Tiffany Parker (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) scored four minutes into overtime to lift Frostburg State to a thrilling 1-0 win over Hartwick College in the season-opener for both teams in the Gwynedd Mercy College Tournament Saturday afternoon.

Parker, a transfer from Anne Arundel Community College, took a pass from freshman Erika Neuser (Forest Hill, Md./Fallston) and beat Hartwick senior goalkeeper Andrea Lenon.

The teams traded several scoring opportunities throughout the game, but neither club could find the net through 90 minutes of regulation.

Bobcat sophomore Stephanie Zych (Slingerlands, N.Y./Guilderland) made a career-high 10 saves and posted her second career shutout.

Frostburg State (1-0) held a 17-13 advantage in shots, while Hartwick, whose head coach, Ken Kutler, directed the FSU men's program from 1967 to 1985, held a slight 5-4 edge in corner kicks.

"This was a very physical game on both sides," said Bobcat head coach Carrie Lysik. "We did a much better job in the second half of marking up and possessing the ball.

"Hartwick is a very talented team with good speed and size. Our fitness, which was especially important with our only having four field subs today, really pulled us through."

The Bobcats return to action on Sunday when they face host Gwynedd Mercy at 11:00 a.m.
