FREDERICK, MD. - The Hood College women's soccer team scored first, but conceded a late goal and had to settle for a draw against the visiting Lycoming Warriors.

Inside the Box Score

  • Sophomore Samantha Bauer's 33rd minute tally marked her first collegiate goal for the Blazers.
  • Rachel Knoebel turned away five chances to cap off a solid effort in goal for the Blazer sophomore.
  • The Blazer back four stifled the nation's fifth leading goal scorer, Jordan Lazarich, holding her without a shot on target for the entirety of the 110 minute contest.

 Game Recap

  • Hood was the aggressor early and often in the first half, despite facing a steady headwind, and rattled off 10 shots in the first 45 minutes.
  • Their persistence paid off when a cross into the box was handled by a Lycoming defender and forced a penalty kick. Warrior keeper Joelle Winey parried away the penalty but a mishit clearance fell to the feet of Bauer, who fired a laser into the lower left corner of the net.
  • The game went without another goal for nearly an hour, until Lycoming freshman Mackaela Goodwin cut inside near the end line and fired past Knoebel to knot the score at 1-1.
  • Overtime saw just four total shots and neither team could find a winner.

Notes

  • The tie marks Hood's first point in the 2016 Middle Atlantic Conference campaign.
  • Winey made four saves for the Warriors.
