STAUNTON, Va. – The Gallaudet University women's soccer team erased an early 2-0 deficit and tied the game right before halftime on the road Tuesday afternoon against Mary Baldwin College. The Fighting Squirrels (5-1) broke the 2-2 tie with an unassisted goal by Mayzie Lewis at the 75:51 mark as the host won, 3-2.
The Bison (0-6-1) netted back-to-back goals in a six-minute window, to set the season-high goal total for a single game, late in the first half after they trailed 2-0 just five minutes into the game. Junior midfielder Kelsey Koenigs (Old Orchard Beach, Maine) got the Bison on the scoreboard with her first goal at Gallaudet off an assist from senior defender Katie Giles (Gaithersburg, Md.). Junior midfielder Sofia Lindevall (Stockholm, Sweden) scored her second goal of the season thanks to an assist from senior midfielder Monique Balcarcel (Lansing, Mich.) in the 43rd minute.
Mary Baldwin goalie Erin Dullahan made five saves in the game. Caitlin Novak scored the first two goals of the game for the Fighting Squirrels. Mary Baldwin outshot Gallaudet 23-10 and both teams recorded seven corner kicks.
The Bison return home to host SUNYIT in a North Eastern Athletic Conference game on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 1 p.m. on Hoy Field.
