Urbana Offense Struggles Again in OT Loss
ERIE, Pennsylvania (September 8, 2012) - The Urbana University women's soccer team has just one goal through the team's first four games. The dormant offense cost the Blue Knights again on Saturday in a 1-0 overtime loss at Mercyhurst University.
For over 95 minutes, the Blue Knight defense, headed by senior goalkeeper Meghan Taucher, kept the Lakers at bay in a 0-0 tie. Taucher made 9 saves to give her teammates a chance, but the offense only managed 6 shots against Mercyhurst.
The Lakers capitalized on their first shot of the overtime period. Janine Wong received a pass from Gabrielle Catrabone and beat Taucher in the top right corner for the lone goal of the game.
Urbana (0-4) will try for win #1 on the road on Wednesday night at the University of Findlay. Last season, Findlay beat the Blue Knights 3-2 in double overtime. Two seasons ago in Findlay, the teams ended in a 0-0 tie. Game time is set for 4:00 p.m. [Box Score]
