Two Goal Deficit Too Much for Tars

FINAL SCORE:
Rollins (2-4-1) (1-1-1)– 0
Lynn (4-3-0) (2-0-0) – 2

WINTER PARK, Fla. (September 27, 2017) – The Tars dominated the shot category on the night, but came up short to Lynn by a score of 2-0. Rollins drops to 1-1-1 in the conference, and 2-4-1 overall, while Lynn improves to 2-0 in the SSC, and 4-3 overall.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
First Half:
 The Tars came out looking to strike first, with a couple of early shots by Kat Weiss. The Jupiter, Florida native came close to breaking the deadlock, but Lynn goalkeeper Alexa Downie was up for the challenge. Downie would finish the half with six saves. It was the Fighting Knights who would net the opening goal in the 25th minute when Kelly Rowswell would make a save, but Valentina Pedretti was in the right spot to pass it into an open net. Again, it was Lynn who would double their advantage in the 41st minute when Donish Henry Cole slotted home a pass from Felicia Silveira. Lynn would take a 2-0 lead into the locker room, but it was the Tars who held a huge advantage in shots taken, 13-4.  

Second Half: Rollins would come out attacking, looking for two goals in the second half. The Fighting Knights defense would hold strong though, and Rollins would once again force Downie into six saves throughout the half. The Tars would fire off nine shots, and earn two corner kicks, however it was not enough to get back into the game, and the score would end with Lynn defeating the Tars, 2-0.

NOTES:

  • Rollins and Lynn are now tied in the all-time series, 13-13-1
  • The Tars outshot Lynn, 22-7 on the night
  • This is the sixth consecutive game the Tars have tallied double digit shots
