Crusaders Drop Tight Contest With Erskine
Due West, SC – The Crusaders fell to the Flying Fleet of Erskine College in a closely contested game 2-1 on Monday night in a remake of a weather delayed gamed earlier this month.
The scoring opened up in the 4th minute as Katherine Coleman latched onto a through ball from Kate Harrington and deposited the ball in the back of the net. Coleman would be a thorn in NGU’s side all night as she would score again in the 43rd minute on an assist from Jennifer Deppen.
The Crusaders would get back into the game in the 72nd minute on a goal from sophomore Lindsay Tuten as the forward would shake off her defender and deposit the ball in the far left corner; it was Tuten’s second goal in as many games.
The game saw plenty of scoring chances as both teams combined for 30 shots with the Crusaders accounting for 13. Both goalkeeper s were active as there were 15 shots on goal for the game, six of which belonged to NGU. Crusader goalkeeper Katie Tate finished with seven saves on the night.
The Crusaders (0-5-1, 0-1-1 Conference Carolinas) will host Queens University on Wednesday, Oct. 1 at 5 p.m. in Pepsi Stadium.
