Bison drop 4-0 match to Lancaster Bible
LANCASTER, Pa. — The Gallaudet University women's soccer team dropped an away match against Lancaster Bible College on Thursday to the tune of 4-0. The game was held at Charger Field in Lancaster, Pa., where the Chargers will host North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) games as the conference's newest member next year.
The Bison (6-9, 4-5 NEAC) were unable to connect on any of their nine shots as Chargers goalie Emily Lloyd made seven saves to earn the shutout. Lancaster Bible (12-5) forward Hannah Richard scored two first half goals (10th and 34th minutes), which were both assisted by Ally Brown. Kristina Clairmont also added two assists in the match for the Chargers, the second of which came on Whitney Heise's score in the 41st minute. Heise finished the game with a game-high 11 shots, six of which were on goal.
Bison sophomore Maddie Morgan (Hockessin, Del.) put pressure on the defense with a team-high two shots on goal. Sophomore goalie Kara Gulvas (Crown Point, Ind.) tallied 11 saves as she allowed four shots to find the back of the net. However, the Chargers' final goal, awarded to Brown, was inadvertently scored by Gallaudet on a defensive cross in the box in the 50th minute. Senior Virginia Keeler (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and sophomore Maggie Hoyt (Edgecomb, Maine) contributed two shots apiece.
The Buff and Blue continue their Pennsylvania road trip vs. NEAC opponent Penn St.-Berks (8-8, 7-2 NEAC) on Saturday, October 23, at 1 p.m.
