Women's Soccer Falls at York

By Lancaster Brown

YORK, Pa.—Battling cold and windy conditions, the Southern Virginia University women's soccer team fell at Capital Athletic Conference opponent York College of Pennsylvania 1-0 Saturday afternoon in York, Pa.

The loss brings the Knights to a 6-9-1 overall record on the season.

Southern Virginia managed three shots, including one on goal, while York took 23 shots with 12 on goal.  Despite the wide margin in shot attempts, Southern Virginia kept it close, only allowing one goal at the 37:53 mark.

Freshman Tatiana Monsen was responsible for two of the Knights' three shots, and Meagen Varney added the other, Southern Virginia's only shot on goal.

In the 38th minute, York's Jamie Sokolis scored off a corner kick from teammate Kirsten Good, proving to be enough to win the game as both teams were held scoreless in the second half.

Southern Virginia freshman Morgan Young got the start at keeper and tallied six saves out of seven shots on goal, allowing one goal.  Junior MaKenzie Cox played the second half and saved five out of five shots on goal.

Women's soccer will next be in action Tuesday, Oct. 29th, in their final match of the season.  They will be facing their seventh straight Capital Athletic Conference opponent as they host Mary Washington. The match is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. at The Fields in Buena Vista, Va.
