Women's Soccer to Face Familiar Foe in First Round of NCAA Tournament

FROSTBURG, MD — After winning its fourth consecutive Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference title, the Frostburg State women’s soccer team will play Westminster College in the opening round of the NCAA Division III Tournament tomorrow night.

The game will be held at Greyhound Stadium at Wilmington Area High School in New Wilmington, Pa., at 6:00 pm.

These two teams are no strangers to one another, as they have squared off in the first round of the NCAA Tournament each of the past two seasons. The Titans handed the Bobcats a 4-1 loss in 2002, while the Bobcats returned the favor with a 3-2 victory last year.

The Bobcats (14-2-2) are currently on an eight-game winning streak. They defeated Penn State Behrend 3-2 in double overtime Saturday to win the AMCC Tournament and the league’s automatic NCAA bid.

The Titans (14-6-2) have won their last four games, including a 4-3 penalty-kick victory over Grove City to capture the Presidents’ Athletic Conference championship.

Senior Karen Kotofski (Glen Burnie, Md./Northeast), the AMCC Player of the Year for the second straight season, leads Frostburg State with 20 goals, 12 assists and 52 points, while sophomore Danielle Carter (Rockville, Md./Rockville), a first-team All-AMCC pick, is second on the squad with 19 goals and 45 points.

Junior Jodie Gittleson (Rockville, Md./Wootton) is the third Bobcat with double-digit goals (10), and junior Beth Hlebasko (New Market, Md./Linganore) has added 11 assists.

Senior goalie Kelly Jones (Woodbine, Md./Glenelg) is 10-2-1 with four shutouts and an AMCC-leading 0.71 goals against average. The Bobcats have allowed just 11 goals in 18 games this season.

Freshman Scarlett Bretz leads Westminster with 13 goals, including seven game-winners, and 32 points, while senior Angie DePascale was second in scoring with nine goals and five assists for 23 points. Sophomore Sarah Calderone recorded two goals and a team-high seven assists for 11 points.

Senior goalie Nicole Drummond has allowed just 19 goals in 20 games (0.98 GAA) while posting 106 saves and a school-record 10 shutouts.

The winner of the Westminster-Frostburg State game will advance to the second round to face Christopher Newport University (14-3-3) in Newport News, Va., this Saturday, Nov. 13 at 6:00 pm. The Captains edged Methodist 2-1 in overtime to win the USA South Conference championship.
