WOMEN'S SOCCER OPENS MSC PLAY WITH ROAD VICTORY OVER SSU

The Patriot Women's Soccer team opened up Mid-South Conference play on the road against the Bears of Shawnee State University Saturday. 

At the kickoff, Kindsay Miller-Riney tapped it to Sara Herbert, who dribbled past the entire Bears team and shot home a goal just 27 seconds into the match.  The Bears answered in the 35th minute when Jenny Campbell knocked home a free kick from just outside the box to make the score 1-1 at the half.

The second half saw a deluge of goals scored.  First, scored in the 57th minute as Bethany Massey fed Miller-Riney for a 2-1 lead.  The Patriots expanded their lead in the 65th minute when Hayley Greenwell scored her first goal of the season off a Rachel Palazzo pass.  The Bears cut the lead to 1 again when Schuyler Jones came up from the back line to head home a corner kick taken by Campbell.  The game looked like it might be a tight one through regulation when the Patriots earned a corner in the 87th minute.  Rachel Palazzo took the kick that dropped into the box, took a bounce and slid into the goal just past the Bears 'keepers' leg.

The goal gave the Patriots the 4-2 win and a 1-0 record in conference play.  The Patriots will take on conference rival, Campbellsville University on Tuesday at the Barber Soccer Complex.
