Women’s Soccer Drops Two Over Weekend

The sixteenth-ranked Lady Lions soccer team arrived in dreary Connecticut this weekend and came back home in a even drearier mood as they lost two one-goal games Friday and Sunday, falling to Yale 1-0 to open the weekend and UConn 3-2 in overtime in the finale.

Despite outshooting Yale 14-6, the Nits were unable to find the back of the goal for all 90 minutes in a game played in the wake of Hurricane Earl reaching the New England states. Senior Becky Brown of Yale was able to drive a shot through the blustering winds in the 62nd minute for a goal which turned out to be all the Lady Bulldogs needed.

Penn State made their way to Storrs on Sunday to even their weekend record and came out strong as Christine Nairn scored just over a minute into the game to give PSU an early 1-0 lead. After two Connecticut goals, Hayley Brock scored her second goal of the year in the 66th minute to tie the score at 2, which is how it would stay for the rest of regulation. But only three minutes into the first overtime, UConn forward Jessica Shufelt scored an overtime winner for the second straight game to dash any Nittany Lion hopes.

The girls are now 1-3-1 on the season. They head west this weekend to take on Washington on Friday night and then #4 Portland on Sunday afternoon as part of the Nike Portland Invitational.
