Due West, S.C. – North Greenville Women’s Soccer dropped its first Conference Carolinas game of the season on Saturday after a 2-1 loss to Erskine College in double-overtime.
The Fleet earned a 1-0 lead early in the second half when Ani-Miller Wells connected on a pass from Ashley Mull in the 50th minute. The Crusaders wasted little time evening the tally at one as Megan Robertson scored her first of the season, taking advantage of a one on one and finding the back of the net in the 52nd minute.
Both teams would pressure in the final 38-minutes of regulation but were unable to capitalize. NGU keeper Madelynn Schober totaled 13-saves in 106-minutes of action, three of which came in the second period.
Neither team could capitalize on opportunities in the first overtime as the Crusaders put two shots on goal while the Fleet delivered one which was saved by Schober. She would tally one more save in the second overtime before a left footed shot from Kayla Kieffer from the top of the goalie box found its way over Schober’s head ending the game.
The Crusaders finished with nine shots on goal and 17 total shots while Erskine put 15 shots on frame. Erskine Keeper Abbigale Schimidt tallied eight saves.
The Crusaders will host Lees-McRae College on Wednesday night in Tigerville. Kickoff is scheduled for 5pm.
