Despite 12 saves Muskies lose to Concordia
September 20, 2012
Lakeland College womens soccer team looked to continue its winning streak on Wednesday, Sept. 19 by taking on Concordia University Wisconsin, in Mequon.
The Muskies struggled this week only taking one attempt at the goal all game. The Muskies where outshot by Concordia 41-1 in the contest. Concordia poured it on heavy against the Muskies winning the game 8-0.
Concordia started off the scoring in the first half when Brittney Clump scored the first goal in the tenth minute of the half. But Lauren Straehler was the one that led Concordia to victory scoring three goals and collecting a hat trick for the game. Carly Pfannerstill also contributed to the scoring, making two goals in the contest as well.
This loss is extremely disappointing for the team after scoring 20 combined goals in their last two contests. But it wasn’t all bad for the Muskies. The Muskies had superb goal keeping, making 12 saves in the contest. Brittni Peterson and Ali Thompson had six saves each.
The loss has put the Muskies record to right under the 500 mark at 3-4. The Muskies will look to rebound this week when they take on Benedictine on Saturday Sept. 22 in Sheboygan.
