Struggles Continue For Women's Soccer
Bristol, TN – It has been a tough season for the Crusaders and traveling to King did not turn their fortunes as the Crusaders fell to the Tornados 6-0 on Saturday afternoon.
It took King just 50 seconds to open the scoring as Kendyl Baird scored her first goal of the season unassisted as her shot bounced off a defender and over keepers head. Baird would strike again in the 18th minute on an assist from Paula Doran as her pass down would be placed past the keeper and into the back of the net.
It would take King 20 minutes to strike again as Eydis Eysteinsdottir would net her first goal of the season on an assist from Shalisa Barnett . Barnett would nab her first goal of the season 13 minutes into the second half as her shot would deflect off an NGU defender and find the bottom corner.
Rayna Spears would leave no doubt as to the winner as she would score twice in the 70th minute to seal the game.
Sophomore Michelle Huddleston would prove to be one of the bright spots for the Crusaders as she recorded eight saves.
The Crusaders (0-8-1, 0-3-1 Conference Carolinas) will host Emmanuel College on Thursday, Oct. 9 at 5 p.m. in Pepsi Stadium.
