Coker Women's Soccer Falls to Anderson

ANDERSON, S.C. – The Coker University women's soccer team fell to Anderson (S.C.) in South Atlantic Conference play on Wednesday (Oct. 2) by a score of 4-0.

In the first half the Cobras held a strong defense until Anderson's  Erin Cepeda converted a goal at the 22-minute mark. Senior Makayla Barr gave the Cobras an opportunity right before the end of the first with a shot on goal that was saved by Anderson's Madison Paige to leave the halftime score 1-0.

The Cobras would try to battle back in the second half but came up short in their effort. At the 52-minute mark Cepeda had her second goal of the game for the Trojans. Anderson would add two more goals later on in the second half.

"Unfortunatley the game didn't go as we had hoped," said head coach Garrett Linquist. "I felt like we had moments where we showed what we were capable of, but unfortunately weren't able to put it together for 90 minutes, and got punished for our mistakes. We will look to regroup and get ready for Catawba."

On the offensive, end Makayla Barr had the one shot on goal for the Cobras, while freshman Sarah Swaim had nine saves on the day.

The Cobras will be back in action on Saturday (Oct. 5) for a conference matchup when they host Catabwa at 4:30 p.m.
