PITTSBURGH – The Carlow University women’s soccer team fell,
4-1, to University of Maine at Fort Kent on Friday, Sept. 2, at Highmark
The defending USCAA champion Bengals moved to a perfect 2-0
on the season, after opening with a win against Gordon College the day before.
The Celtics took their second loss against a quality opponent this season,
after falling to Davenport University, 5-0, in their opener.
The Bengals did nearly all of their damage in the first five
minutes of each half. They scored one goal early in the first before the Carlow
defense locked them down until halftime. However, they quickly extended the
lead to 3-0 after the break.
(SO/Jeannette, Pa.) scored the first Carlow goal of the season, on an assist
from Alexa Mermigas (JR/Wexford,
Pa.). The goal cut the UMFK lead to 3-1, but Carlow could get no closer.
Sherifatu Sumaila scored the final goal for UMFK, her second
of the night. The Bengals’ other scorers were Jennifer Cudjoe and
Marie-Laurence Montagne. All UMFK goals were unassisted.
The Bengals took 10 shots, while Carlow got off five. The
Celtics earned three corner kicks to UMFK’s one.
Carlow goalkeeper Lexie Mirenda
(JR/Altoona, Pa.) made four saves.
The Celtics are back in action Saturday, Sept. 10, at 7pm, hosting
Lake Erie College.
