HARTSVILLE, S.C.- The Coker University women's soccer team fell to Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference action on Saturday (Oct. 12) at Coker Athletic Field.
Carson-Newman scored the first goal of the game off of a corner kick when Lira Mathes connected with Addie Henry on header at the 15-minute mark. The eagles would then go on to score once more before the half to make the score 2-0.
Coker's comeback began early in the second half when Skyler Jorgensen found the back of the net with a header at the 55-minute mark off the assist by Chloe Grein. The Cobras continued their strong defensive effort by surrendering only a single goal in the second half to keep the final score at a very respectable 3-1 margin
"Today was really a mixed bag for us," said Head Coach Garrett Linquist. "In the moments we got it right, we did some good things and our goal was a product of that. Unfortunately, we got off to bit of a slow start and that was the difference today. We'll look to try to continue to push forward and keep working to get better each day."
Coker will be back in action for a South Atlantic Conference matchup when they host Newberry on Wednesday (0ct. 16) at Coker Athletic Field with kickoff time slated for 7:00 p.m.
