Women's Soccer Drops Close Match at Pfeiffer
MIESENHEIMER, NC--Alyssa Wombwell notched her second goal of the match in the 89th minute to lift Pfeiffer University over Catawba College 2-1 Saturday afternoon at Lefko Field. With the loss the Lady Indians now stand at 1-5 overall. The Falcons up their record to 2-4.
In the waning minutes of the match Wombwell struck a free kick from 20 yards out inside the left post to give the Falcons the home win. The senior midfielder also scored a few minutes shy of halftime to equalize 1-1 with Catawba.
Senior forward Kristen Girardi (Asheville, NC/W. Carolina) put the Lady Indians on the board first in the 19th minute. After a Brittany Gibbons (Woodleaf, NC/West Rowan HS) steal in the midfield and an Alyssa Retundie (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) cross into the box, Girardi punched it in at left post for the early lead.
Catawba had a considerable 17-7 advantage in shots. Lindsey Webster (Hopkinton, MA/Hopkinton HS) made two saves in goal for the Lady Indians.
Catawba continues on the road next week as it visits Lees-McRae on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7:00 pm.
