Records: Southern Wesleyan (5-7-2 / CC 3-5-1) Limestone (8-6 / CC 7-2)

 

Coach Morrell says...

"Really slow start today, gave up two goals in first couple minutes, so that is obviosly not a good position to be in.  Disappointed in our first half effort and lack of communication.  Second half was better, but we have to be a more consistent team."

 

How It Happened

The Limestone Saints scored early, taking a 2-0 lead on goals by Emma Hickson and Danielle Murray.  The Saints continued to challenge the Warriors, but Jen Golio and the Warriors defense kept the ball from reaching the net for Limestone to extend their lead.  Southern Wesleyan attempted to attack, but their attacks were called offsides, preventing them from countering.  Limestone went on to win the game 4-0.

 

What's Next

Southern Wesleyan will remain on the road as they take on the Erskine College Flying Fleet on October 30 at 5 p.m.  They will close out the regular season on the road on November 1 as they take on the North Greenville Crusaders.
