Knights Unable to Hold Early Lead against Waldorf
NEW ULM, Minn. - The women's soccer team got off to an early lead, but fell prey to a rough five minute stretch that allowed Waldorf to sneak out of Knight Field with a 2-1 win.
Bethany Schultz picked up the first goal of her career on a penalty kick in the 22nd minute of play to give MLC a 1-0, which it held all the way until the 66th minute of action.
After Waldorf scored to tie the game at 1-1, the Warriors struck again just four minutes later to take a 2-1 lead, which they would hold onto the rest of the way.
MLC was outshot 32-9 for the game, and 13-2 on goal, but got a strong performance from goalkeeper Allison Snyder, who stopped 11 shots on the day.
Offensively, Schultz finished with five shots total and the lone goal for the Knights, while Kadie Drake also had a shot on goal. Linda Kenyon had one shot, and also drew the foul in the box that led to Schultz's penalty kick.
With the loss, MLC dropped to 1-2 on the season, and will return to the pitch on Friday, September 17, when it hosts St. Scholastica for a 2 p.m. start.
