Lock Haven outlasts MU in women's soccer
Senior Jess Kerwin and freshman Danielle Lentz each scored a goal and Mansfield held a 12-9 advantage in shots-on-goal, but it wouldn't be enough as Lock Haven pulled out a 4-2 win in a PSAC matchup Wednesday afternoon at the Soccer Field.
Lock Haven (3-4-1) scored the game's first goal just two minutes into the contest when Jamie Hunter scored from 15-yards out off a pass from Taylor Schutte.
Mansfield countered 11 minutes later when Kerwin took a long pass from Nicole Semenza and drilled it into the left side of net to tie the score at 1-1.
Lock Haven responded three minutes later with Samantha Bond hitting an unassisted goal from 20-yards out giving the Bald Eagles a 2-1 halftime advantage.
Mansfield carried play from much of the second half getting off the first 10 shots after intermission including four on goal. Three of the other six shots went off the crossbar.
Lock Haven withstood Mansfield offensive pressure and increased its advantage to 3-1 when Erica Selheimer scored off a header in the 73rd minute.
But Mansfield responded almost immediately when Lentz drilled a ball past the goalie into the left side of the net from 10-yards out 90 seconds after the Bald Eagle goal to close the gap to 3-2. It was the freshman third goal in the last four games.
But LHU's Madison Taylor ended Mansfield's comeback attempt by scoring off a header on a free kick with just under three minutes remaining in regulation.
Dana Wozniak was credited with 10 saves for Lock Haven while Mansfield's Alana Krieger had five saves.
The loss snapped a three game non-losing streak for the Mountaineers who won two games and tied one over that span.
Mansfield is not 3-5-1 on the season and travels to Bloomsburg on Saturday.
