Women's Soccer Falls to UMass, 1-0

DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire women's soccer team fell to UMass Sunday afternoon by a score of 1-0. The loss drops the Wildcats to 1-4-1 on the year while UMass improves to 1-3-1.

UMass got on the board when Brittany Moore blasted a shot from about 25 yards out and into the top of the net. The shot just beat UNH goalie Erica Correa (Cheshire, Conn.) as it sailed into the top corner.

Sophomore Kirsten O'Neil (Hampton, N.H.) paced the Wildcat offense as she recorded a pair of shots on goal. Both attempts were saved by Minutewomen goalie Danielle Kriscenski. New Hampshire held an 8-5 edge in shots.

The Wildcats maintained ball control in the UMass zone in the second half of the game, striking six shots. Kennedy Nickerson (Niantic, Conn.) and Anna Deweirdt (Seattle, Wash.) tried to level the score, but their attempts were just high of the target.

UMass notched one shot on goal in the second half that was saved by freshman goalie Mimi Borkan (Medfield, Mass.).

After 90 minutes of play, Massachusetts held on for a 1-0 win.

The Wildcats return to action Wednesday, Sept. 11 when they travel to Harvard for an evening match. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
