Lackawanna falls 1-0 to Rowan College of Burlington County

Scranton, PA – Lackawanna Women's Soccer team was back at home Sunday to face Rowan College at Burlington County.  This game would turn out to be a back and forth defensive battle by both teams.  The 1st half saw the Lady Falcons and The Lady Barons trying to attack the goal.  However, both goal keepers were able to stop the attacks and after 45 minutes of play, the teams were tied 0-0.  The back and forth continued for a majority of the 2nd half until Rowan College at Burlington County broke through at the 87:30 mark, with an unassisted goal by Pauline Galisson.  This would be all the Lady Barons would need as they went on to defeat Lackawanna College 1-0.

The Lady Falcons were led by freshman Rachel Apsley, who recorded 5 shots on goal, while freshman Britney Stout and sophomore Alexa Smith each had 1.  Even in the loss, freshman Sophia Andreli turned in an outstanding performance in the goal.  She played all 90:00 minutes and had 9 saves out of 10 shots on goal.
