Women's Soccer Scrimmages Asbury

The Patriot Women's Soccer team traveled to Asbury University for what promised to be tough match on Saturday night for the first scrimmage of the 2012 season.

In a match that proved to be much more like a mid-season contest, Asbury and St. Catharine would fight down to the final whistle.  St. Catharine struck first with pressure on the Asbury goal and scored off a shot from Kelsey Pendleton that was deflected past the Goalkeeper by an Asbury defender for a 1-0 halftime lead.  

Asbury would come back with a flurry in the second half with two scores off corner kicks in a 7 minute span.  The Patriots, however, weren't done.  Fighting right down to the end, the Patriots had several shots in the final minutes including a shot just over the bar by Chelsey Landrum and a shot that crashed off the crossbar by Sara Herbert.  Despite the final push, the Patriots were unable to tie up the game and fell 2-1.
