WOMEN'S SOCCER TRIPPED UP AT NORTHEASTERN, 3-1
BOSTON – Junior Jordyn Krall (Duxbury, Mass.) scored her first goal of the season, but the University of New Hampshire women's soccer team dropped a 3-1 decision to Northeastern University at Parsons Field on Friday evening.
The Wildcats fall to 2-4-2 on the season, while Huskies improve to 5-2-0.
Trailing 1-0 late in the 50th minute, the Wildcats gained the equalizer when Krall received a feed from sophomore Chelsea Kuss (Warners, N.Y.) and beat Northeastern goalkeeper Michelle Sopko with a low shot from the near side.
The Huskies went ahead for good, however, in the 62nd minute when Greta Samuelsdottir's header off a Kristen Blake corner kick found the back of the net.
Northeastern grabbed an insurance goal just 2:40 later after Blake's ball through the middle found Veronica Napoli, who beat freshman goalkeeper Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) to make it 3-1.
Correa made seven saves, while Sopko stopped three shots.
The Huskies jumped on the board in the 13th minute when Georgina Kemp's diving header off a Kirby Anderson corner ended up in the net for the 1-0 lead.
Northeastern held advantages of 24-11 in shots and 9-1 in corners.
The Wildcats return to action Sunday, Sept. 19 at 1 p.m. when they play host to Bryant University at Lewis Fields.
