The Carlow women’s soccer team made a late run but fell to Midway (Ky.) University, 3-2, on Sunday, Oct. 8, at Highmark Stadium.
Midway scored on its first shot of the contest, on a breakaway down the sideline by Regan Snyder in the seventh minute.
Kindsay Miller-Riney, who netted two goals in the match, added the Eagles’ second goal in the 29th minute from 18 yards directly in front of the goal.
Miller-Riney scored again three minutes into the second half to give the Eagles a 3-0 lead. She earned an open shot and Carlow goalkeeper Lexie Mirenda (SR/Altoona, Pa.) made a diving save, but Miller-Riney followed her own shot and sent the rebound into the back of the net.
Karina Wallace (JR/Jeannette, Pa.) scored Carlow’s first goal in the 60th minute, and Malak Shuman (SO/Monroeville, Pa.) beat two defenders one-on-one and scored her team-leading seventh goal in the 88th minute, but the clock ran down for the Midway win.
Mirenda finished with eight saves as Midway earned 12 shots, with 11 on goal. Carlow also took 12 shots, but only put six on goal. Midway goalkeeper Emily Belt finished with four saves.
