Late Goal Lifts Muskingum Over Women's Soccer 2-1

NEW CONCORD, Ohio - Muskingum University scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the 82nd minute in a 2-1 victory over the Earlham College women's soccer team in non-conference action on Wednesday evening.

Earlham's leading scorer, freshman Chloe Lamenzo, netted her eighth goal of the season in the unassisted in the 15th minute. The Muskies leveled the game 10 minutes later as Tori Stuard pounced on a rebound.

Both teams would take 11 shots in the first half, but goalkeepers Jasmine Love and sophomore Sari Stissi would only be beaten once.

Neither team could score the go-ahead goal for the first 35 minutes of the second half, but Mary Double, who assisted on Muskingum's first goal, broke the deadlock with the game-winner at the 81:16 mark.

Just like the first half, both teams fired an equal amount of shots with seven in the second 45 minutes. The Quakers held a 12-9 edge in shots on goal, but were only able to beat Love once.

Along with Lamenzo's goal came four shots. Senior Kelsey Moore also fired four shots, all of which were on target.

Double and Stuard combined for 10 of Muskingum's 18 shots.

Earlham (3-4-0) hosts Marietta at 4 p.m. on Saturday.
